Re: Renault Grand Scenic parking brake failure when wet

New motor unit is about 500 quid before fitting plus set up on diagnostics unit.

There is a thread in the stickies on stripping down a unit.... not too bad a job.
And yes, you can dry out, make sure the PCB is clean and reseal with silicon.
Could also be water getting into the multiplug
And nt sure about Grand Scenics but scenics can also suffer from water in connections under the passenger seat..under the storage drawer.
Currently in Dancingdad's garage:
Qashqai 1.6 spark driven, Kia Sedona 2.9 TDI, Scenic II 15DCi 2004 (SORN) not quite RIP.
