Default Parking Brake Won't Hold

Had the message "Parking Brake Won't Hold" pop up a couple of times recently when parking on hills. Hills are steep but not massively so. Car is only 6 months old, auto AWD.

I might add it does seem to hold ok .

Anyone else had a similar problem?

Thanks

John

Afternoon , at 6 months old , I would ring the dealer . Ask if any software updates are available / required . I would also ask that they link up Vida/dice to check for any error codes & manually operate the EPB motors while it is plugged in via the software . I have used my Snap-on device to work the motors on & off on several Vauxhall's , a couple of of BMw's & countless bloody french cars .
The worst culprits were those that spent most time parked up in salty damp environments ( Oh , I do like to be beside the seaside ........ honest ! ) it is possible a sensor "thinks " it detects movement & triggers the message so again , get any codes read

Took car to dealer.
Turns out both rear brake calipers were leaking !
They were replaced under warranty. Car is 6 months old and done 3000miles!!
Slightly worrying!!
Thanks for the response
John
