hi all... i have a c4gp 2007 1.8 petrol.... it failed mot on nsr handbrake insufficient.. so i turn off the handbrake, remove the rear caliper to check it and disconnect handbrake cable. the cable is really stiff inside so i squirt wd40 into it. then i thought id turn the handbrake on and off to free it, but like an idiot i didnt reconnect the cable to the caliper.. so i press the handbrake button the motor winds and then winds some more then clicks for a few seconds and stops. .i press again and the dash is array with flashing lights and errors (hand brake faulty, abs/ esp, etc... i get the little tool out, slot it in the motor and wind the cable back manually, now the manual says when its been wound back i should turn ignition off hold brake button for 5secs turn on ignition and itll reset but its not having any of it,,, does anyone have an ideas where i can go next, like is there a fuse for the motors or any sensors i can check?

Did you fit it yourself?

How did you disconnect the drive shaft to remove it?
