Hi I parked my car (grand scenic 07) this morning, turned the ignition of and went to work. My car had decided to move on its own to the other side of the car park and hit a wall on its own, im assuming the handbrake wasnt working. I have a semi automatic handbrake and thought that when you turn the ignition off the handbrake came on? is this correct and do I have a fault with it. Could someone explain the way in which a semi automatic handbrake works, needless to say i had a heart attack when i went to see my car but luckly its ok.

Re: handbrake

Hi Borah, you are correct in saying the parking brake should apply when you press the stop button to turn off the ignition.
Give your local main dealer a ring there is a re-call on the Scenic parking brake.
