Espace ticking from parking brake

Hi,Im new to this forum and am struggling with a problem on my espace.
It's a 2004 2.2dci and from the day I bought it it's had a ticking/clicking noise from the parking brake box beneath the vehicle. It all works but around 5 mins after you switch off the car it rearms again and starts ticking and will do it till you use it again. It has the following fault codes,
159. No uch multiplex signal stored
248. Computer internal electronic error current
183. Redundant brake on switch internal electronic error stored.
If anyone could give me some advice I would be really grateful as these days it's not ideal to have a motor with a ticking noise under it? Thanks

Re: Espace ticking from parking brake

Maybe the ticking you can hear is the EPB keep trying to apply when it's already on?

Can you not for the time being release the EPB when parking up and just leave the car in gear to save the ticking?
(Would always advise to leave a parked vehicle in gear as a matter of course even with a fully functioning handbrake!)

You could try to find a local Renault independant who may have an idea on the fault.


Please take the time to enter your vehicle details in the "What's current in your garage?" box.

To do this:
Hover over the "TOOLS" tab at the top of the page
> then in the dropdown click on "User Dashboard"
> click on "Edit Your Details" at the top Left hand side.
> scroll down to the "What's current in your garage?" box and enter your vehicle details.
> Once the details are entered scroll down to the bottom of the page and click "Save Changes"

> Done.
