Question about Cars & Trucks

1 Answer

I have Renault Dacia 1.5 Dci.On braking the ABS activates extremely early & ABS & Parking brake light comes on.On normal braking also there is a judder & noise on the brake pedal as the AB

Consider I am driving at 80 kmph & just start to apply brakes gradually for slowing down the brake is extremely sensitive & the ABS kicks in & on nearing stoping the brake pedal will go in by approx 5 cms suddenly & brake again.During the same situation if the road is pavered or rough the ABS is on but the car will just not stop.The ABS & parking light comes on initially very dim in the cluster & then after sometime it is on permanently.

Parking Brake, ABS, Traction Control & Anti Skid lights on


One or more of the sensors in the wheels that are responsible for these functions is faulty. It is sending a signal that is mucking up the calculations that control the brakes and engine for traction control and anti skid. All of them need to be checked!

Hi my abs light has come on my laguna 2003 2lt what could the problems be and can it cause my brakes to fail on me ?


Not a Renault expert, but the ABS system is disabled when the light is on. You should still have normal brakes. The ABS system applies brake pressure to a wheel if it sees that wheel turning faster than the other three.
You will need someone to read the codes in the computer on the car.

Abs light comes on while driving


Hi there,

In the event of the ABS light coming on whilst driving, means the ABS computer has detected either a malfunction, or one of the sensors is not operating as it should.

When the ABS light comes on, the computer will de-activate the ABS function of your braking, and your vehicle will now be operating under normal brakes (i.e. no anti-locking ability) and will now be susceptible to wheel lock-up under extreme emergency braking.

I would highly recommend you have the ABS computer scanned for 'trouble codes'. This will tell you "where" in the ABS system, the fault lies.

It could be anything from a simple wheel sensor needing adjustment, to a faulty pump.

As with all modern vehicles, your respective onboard vehicle computer will 'tell you' where the problem lies.

Parking brake light on 2003 1.5 dci


If the hand brake goes on and off normally and the car behaves properly without any brake binding, I think the best shot is to bring it to the Renault dealer as it might be a fault that they already know of and who knows may be there is a factory recall on these and you could end up paying peanuts for the fix..
Cheers and good luck
