Re: brake computer
Hi, I have a 2005 Scenic 1.9dci with faulty electronic parking brake. Dealer said it is the computer and wants to charge me £900 for a new one. Can I buy a 2nd hand one and re-program it to my Vehicle?
Doesn't need reprogramming. But some are different & forum users who use DDT2000 note that to reset the EPB unit, it's necessary to try different models to allow communication.
Dealers say lot's, mainly through ignorance or greed. They CAN be repaired, either DIY or exchange or while you wait for £150 ish.
Do a forum search for EPB lot's of threads, I know coz I've contributed to most of them.
