Hello Martyn, most current Renaults switch on the hazard lights when the brakes are applied in an emergency, I assume your not doing emergency stops when this is happening ... is the ABS activating when or before this is happening? ... I'd look at the following (no order suggested) ...

1/ ABS sensors as your electrician suggested
2/ Brake light switch
3/ ABS toothed rings on the wheelhub/driveshafts
4/ Have the brakes been worked on reciently ... if so check whats been done ... no loose wires etc
5/ I've had ABS problems after a fluid change ... basically not bled properly ... causing false triggers

I'm sure some of the professionals may add to this or suggest something different ..

Hope it helps

Why is it the older I get .... the better I think I was ?
