Re: Reset electronic handbrake,LOOK HERE
I took my old automatic handbrake apart when I got mine changed out. You have a motor and a PCB and a great big cable. None of the components showed any reason why they should not function properly.
I personally think that the computer in these things go crazy and once they do there is nothing mechanical you can do.
You need Renault Clip to even try to reset it and even then it may come back.
All the original suggestion here does in my experience is to turn the handbrake back on once you have used the yellow handle in the boot to turn it off or release it.
Maybe you could try first turning it off or releasing it (whatever that handle does) and then following the procedure in the suggestion to turn it back on.
I would, however prepare yourself to have to pay a renault agent £590-£720 to put a new unit in for you. I paid an independent renault specialist £590 to do mine, having first had a quote of £720 to from renault franchise.
Probably not too helpful, but my pennies worth anyway! Hope you get it sorted without emptying your account!
