Re: Grand Scenic 2005, Park Brake Fault

Cool that was lucky. Mine turned out to be the battery that was low, still plenty umph to start and run but alas not enough for the parking barke. Still the garage found other stuff to fix as well so it cost 500 and then 2 days after some kind person slammed into the back of us

Re: Electronic Handbrake - DIY Repair possible?
Grand Scenic 1.6 2004
PARKING BRAKE FAULT ERROR MESSAGE. There are various reasons for this message and I think mine was one of the easy ones to resolve. I had PARKING BRAKE FAULT ERROR MESSAGE when I started the car followed a few moments later with CHECK PARKING BRAKE. I replaced the pads front and rear and this did not solve the problem.
I had a Diagnostic check carried out by Renault dealer which showed the hand brake switch faulty. I went to my local breakers and bought a switch for 20 and fitted it, this solved the problem and cleared the error message without going back to the dealer.
From my experience I would suggest buying a switch from a breakers for 20 and fitting it yourself before doing anything else to see if that is what is causing the problem.
It is a shot in the dark I know but 20 is better than spending a lot more money if that is the problem.
To change the switch is very easy, you remove the switch cluster under the switch with a screwdriver or paint scraper then remove the two screws holding the switch in place and pull forward then remove cable attached to the switch and then replace switch.
I hope this a help in solving the PARKING BRAKE FAULT ERROR MESSAGE.
I have include photos showing step by step removal.
I have not seen mention of the switch fault in any of the previous posts
