Hi all bit of advice please,

Changed my rear brake pads this afternoon, and got the dreaded "parking brake malfunction" orange light when restarting the car.
Parking brake not working now, however when driving if I hold it on it does come on and stops the car, but will not stay on when released.
Have tried taking out fuses and disconnecting the battery, but to no avail.
if anyone has any other suggestions I would be grateful.

If the consensus is that I may need a specific scanner for BMW's then suggestions for decent ones' would also be grateful.

Kind regards JimA
