Re: Scenic electronic handbrake failed after pad change
well after a bit more fiddling with another older version of DDT that i found and some trial and error with things in DDT the warning light is finally off!
Initially i tried the megane & scenic option in the vehicle selection but changed that to megane ii and it seemed to speak to the apb
and delete the 5 codes that were stored and everything seems back to normal.
So a massive thanks to everybody that helped, although i'm still a bit annoyed at the garage that (i suspect) caused all this but i now no longer fear the renault automatic parking brake system :lol:
The end result is getting the old kiddy wagon back on the road for around 12 quid (not including what i spent in maplin on soldering bits and bobs!) which is a lot more palatable this time of year than the 500+ quid we were looking at a couple of weeks ago.
I'm keeping a close eye on the other thread about the motor/brush replacement as i suspect that might come up if i take on the repairs to my sisters scenic, although since that has an evil tractor engine (its a 1.9dci) that has a whole other level of unknown/scary stuff on it!
Currently in niallmoran's garage:
