Question 07 Megane GT brakes by itself?

Hello. I have recently purchased a megane GT 150 dci.

After a couple of weeks I started getting a feeling like the car was cutting out while driving, however there was no lights or change to revs etc and if i tapped the throttle the car returned to normal. Over the last 2 days it has got much more extreme and it definitely feels like the car is applying the brakes by itself momentarily.

Has anyone seen anything like this before and have any advice as what it could be.

There is a service light that comes up "Electronic fault". This disappears when you tap the brake pedal.

Hi Lewis,

This is one of those situations where a full diagnostic will prove much cheaper in the long term, rather than changing parts in the hope of identifying & fixing the fault.



This job should never be complete - the day I think I've done it all, is the day I resign.
