Reseting it doesn’t fix it. Just saying. Read fault and then take appropriate action to fix, especially where brakes are concerned.

Break light switch ,£10 so happy with that.
Found a really good Mercedes indie he has diagnostics to reset sbc if it reaches its limit so no worries.

That’s good news but only reset if star says it’s ok. As said, resets won’t fix worn out parts, it just hides them.
