I used Carista on my wife’s Audi to change the rear discs and pads (electronic parking brake)

Pretty good the Carista, I activated needle sweep on start up, alarm chirp when locking and cornering lights at low speeds (fogs)

Most electronic handbrakes have a manual rewind as well. Normally a few bolts to pop the motor off then an Allen key (or similar) to wind the piston back.

Is it locked to one car or can you use it on as many as you want?

How much you pay for the carista?

No, you can use it with any car. I’m sure I paid £25, that included the plug and 1 months free subscription. If you don’t carry the subscription on you can only do basic things like read and clear air bag and engine faults.

I purely needed it to do the rear brakes and reset the inspection light. Will have to renew it again when the inspection light comes back on.
