    Hello all
    I've just bought my first Honda. It's a petrol FR-V. 2006. Already noticed a problem with the handbrake light/alarm not behaving when pulling away. Seems to be OK most of the time but I've only driven 10 miles so far! Hoping it is not a sign of problems because I really like it otherwise. Looking at several posts it seems that the problem is not uncommon so I hope my local garage will manage. Just a case of replacing a switch? Any idea how much I should expect to pay to get it sorted out?
    Thanks Tom

    There are plenty of FR-V owners on here who may be able to advise, on this and any other issues.

    My local garage has fixed my handbrake alarm problem. The switch was ok but apparently a bit of plastic had got old and worn and was preventing the switch from working. Anyhow offending plastic has been replaced so not an expensive job thankfully.
