Pardon for hijacking an old thread, but I just ran into a similar issue as the OP. I was attempting to clean up the sticky finish of the console trim and must have shorted out the EPB switch in the process.
I pulled it out and cleaned it, plugged it back in but every time I try to clear the EPB fault with my Foxwell NT520, it comes right back on.
Is it possible the switch is really toast after a small amount of soapy water? If I buy a replacement switch and plug it in, I should be able to clear the EPB fault with the NT520?
If I manually unlock the EPB so I can move the car, will I really need to head to the dealership? Is there a recalibration that is then required?
