It's got noting to do with the handbrake - it's the brake fluid is low. When you punch it (should do it if you slam on the brakes, too) - fluid sloshes and the level sensor says your fluid is low. Happened to me a while ago. What caused it is that your pads have worn, so fluid went down. You have 3 choices - 1) ignore it. 2)add fluid ATF4 or ATF 5 ONLY 3)Replace your brake pads. I chose # 3, and put in ceramic pads, which give me NO DUST.

I got mine from PartsAmerica.Com - Raybestos ceramic pads. MX-5 says Napa makes ceramic pads now, too - you can get them at a NAPA parts store.
