Just had this issue with my Scenic this evening in the freezing cold where I parked up to pick the mrs up from work.
Started engine and parking warning to check brake and it wouldn't let me pull away so was jammed on! Luckily I knew from past problems with this french piece of crap where to find the emergency release!
Got it home and did a search on here and found the above which worked first time.
So a big thanks to the poster as it's saved me some grief.
I both love and hate this forum. Love it for the useful advice as it's saved me literally thousands in the 3 or so years Ive had this car, but hate it given the fact how much information is on an independent forum about the problems this marque has!
I don't think there's another forum that has this much information on the internet!
