Re: Brake warning light - intermittent. Grand Scenic 2006/2.0 Dci

Had exactly that on my Scenic
Rear caliper was leaking from the handbrake actuator.
Only a drip big enough to dampen it and lost in road dirt so wasn't easy to find.

Only real answer is to keep looking until you find it or put into a decent garage and let them look.

Could be anywhere really.
Calipers and flexi hoses probably favourite.
Could also be clutch as they share the reservoir.

If you are not confident in sorting it, get it into a decent garage, last thing you want is to lose brakes.
And keep an eye on the levels, don't rely on the dashboard warning.
Currently in Dancingdad's garage:
Qashqai 1.6 spark driven, Kia Sedona 2.9 TDI, Scenic II 15DCi 2004 (SORN) not quite RIP.
