Laguna III 'Parking Brake Fault'


My Laguna III has had an intermittent fault with the parking brake: When I park on a steep slope it will beep at me and display a warning. The parking brake has always worked fine and when I've pulled away the light has normally gone out and the car has been fine. Occasionally (probably 3rd time in 2 years) I get a permanent warning that comes up in the centre of the dash stating 'Parking Brake Fault' lit up as bright as the sun alongside lit up Spanner and Stop warnings. The parking brake still works fine, engaging when needed and automatically releasing. But the warning is so bright its dangerous and it blocks out the mileage, trip computer, parking sensor graphic etc.

Couple of questions:

1. Does anyone have any idea what could cause this? My local Renault garage seem to just turn off the warning and say there's no fault code - that was fine under warranty but now I'm out of warranty they want 66!

2 can the display warning only be reset with CAN CLIP. I have an ODB tool and the reset on that made no difference.

For info, the brakes are sound as they were all done 6 months ago.

Currently in Singomann's garage:
