Brake pad warning

Hi guys over the last few weeks i have been getting what i assume is the low pad warning light on (The yellow P) i cant find a fault linked to it in the menu of the IID TOOL but when i clear all faults it goes off i have turned the low pad warning in the instrument cluster but it still appears at random any ideas where to go next Thumbs Up

yellow (P) is fault with parking brake
yellow (!) is brake pads wear


So examine the EPB fault codes


I got a yellow (P) when I just flicked the brake switch up, so these days I pull it up and hold it a few seconds or until noise stops

Perhaps that is why it comes on and yes no tool required except a flat bladed screwdriver to move the adjuster Thumbs Up
