hi everyone,i hope some of you can help me,i get 3 beeps when pulling off anywhere and a red (!),it is very inconsistant sometime there all day sometimes only a couple of time a day,i was told it was a handbrake,or low fluid issue,i checked my fluid and its fine,my handbrake light goes off as soon as i lower my handbrake,ive changed both back callipers as 1 was sticking,i did a vag test and it come up with a code of 00290 is this my abs sensor,my abs light doesnt come on at the dash so leads me to think its something else,please help me,its starting to put a strain on me and beginning to think of getting rid of the car,which i love but its killing me,thanks to anyone who can help me on this thanks

i had this on my 4motion though for a while until i had the calipers and handbrake cable replaced...so could well be handbrake cable not releasing properly?
