Re: Renault Scenic III electric handbrake problem
Thanks for that information, it is what I am thinking as well to be honest.
I tried to reset it by using the stalk that controls this trip computer, but all that did was reset my service interval mileage countdown back to 18,000 miles it did not remove the "check parking brake" message or the orange spanner.
I hope there is not another issue beyond the parking brake fault, I am hoping that if I can get a diagnostic machine to reset it then everything will be fine and I won't get anymore errors.
If the computer has stored more than one error though, wouldn't it tell me if I scrolled through the trip computer?
At the moment the screen that usually says "no message memorised" currently says "check parking brake" but I know that has been fixed, it's the just the computer thinks that it hasn't.
So would it not display any other errors at the same time, or does that existing message need clearing first?
Near where I work there is a performance car dealer that a guy I work with knows and they have alot of diagnostic machines on site.
On Monday I will see if they can plug my car in as a favour and try to clear the codes and messages.
If they can, then I will drive the vehicle and see if the computer spouts off anymore messages or if the spanner light reappears.
If it does, then I will have to take it to a main dealer, which to be frank will annoy me because that'll be expensive and living in Cornwall I am miles away from the nearest Renault dealer.
Not happy really, but such is the way.
Thanks again for your help.
