Re: Electronic Handbrake will not auto release
Sorry to hijack the thread but I really need help.
Went to set off today in my 04 plate scenic 2 and I got an electronic fault message and the hand break wouldn't release.
I tried to reset the parking break using the key and the start button but this did not resolve anything. In a panic to get to work on time I pulled the emergency break release so i could set off but then when I went to apply the handbrake (before going anywhere) nothing happened and the handbrake will not go on.
Please can anyone recommend how to fix this or how much it is likely to cost via Renault or local garage.
So far Iíve tried
* Removing neutral cable from battery to reset
* drove around for a while in hope that it resets it
* Reset the handbrake via the keycard and start button
Any help would be appreciated.
Currently in mattirving's garage:
