Question warning tone parking brake

Hi, please excuse my bad language - i am a german guy und a new roadster rider...

I have a little problem:
My vehicle ist an CanAm Spyder, model ST S SE5, built 2013 and the park brake ist elecrical.

Sometimes when i forgot to switch the brake, there is a warning sound - sometimes it is very loud, sometimes it is nearly loudness and other time i can not here anything.
I would like to check the noise modul.
But I can not find it..

Do anyone here now where i have to search or where it is located..??

Many thanks
Reiner

ST S SE5 (2013)

Your machine is the same year as mine and the parking brake can be a pain, but I would not advise disconnecting the buzzer. The parking brake buzzer indicator should show up in the instrument panel. The actuator for the buzzer is mounted on the right side of the engine, once the cover is off you can see the parking brake drum and a small switch. The switch can be adjusted to turn on sooner or later, but debris can and will keep the switch from operating correctly.

Good Luck

Larry

The sound is to let you know that the brake is not engaged

I would not fool around with it at all

Just turn the key on and reset the brake the sound goes away

This is safety item & would not recommend disconnecting it. You are new so eventually you will remember it. Enjoy your ride...
