Renault trafic brakes failed!
Hi all I was wondering if you could give me some advice please
I own a Renault trafic 1.9 dci and whilst driving home from work the other day the power steering stopped working and the brakes failed whilst going down a hill in bendy lanes, nice!
I managed to stop the van using the handbrake and a barrier at the side of the road
The reason I thought the brakes had failed was because wheni tried braking the pedal would not budge, it was like a brick
I stopped the van and switched the engine off for a few ins then tried again, the brakes where still the same but the power steering worked ok.
Took a good ten mins before the brakes would work again and I haven't used the van since as I'm afraid it will happen again
Does anyone have any idea as to what the problem could be?
Also previously in the day the van stopped dead on a roundabout on the way to work but started ok when I switched engine on/off, and previously to this when I brake the steering wheel shakes so I don't know if this is connected
Thanks for the replies
