Electronic Brake

Post by BanjoBanjo » Thu Jan 03, 2019 7:15 pm

I’m new to forum and apologise if this subject has been addressed before
I have an intermittent alarm Orange and flashing Red and when pulling away one side dips indicating that it’s only setting on one brake.
I’ve an mot due in just over a month and this will be a failure
Based on the above does anyone suggest if the failure is at the wheel of with the control unit.
I’m worried about the potential cost if using a main dealer especially as it not happening all the time.
Does anyone know of an independent Nissan dealer in the Southend Essex area

Not a problem I've seen raised before.

I suppose you could take the wheels off and see if you can detect anything - never got that far at looking at mine.

As mentioned it might well not be a problem, but to me Brakes are an important Safety Issue and they have to work especially for stricter MOT’s. Take a look at this attachment and then judge for yourself if this is your problem. I have had these Warning Lights come up on our QQ and I took it immediatey to our Dealer to check it out, but no reason was found and it just disappeared. You mention a Dipping Problem which to me appears to be a non release problem, could be wrong.
Running a vehicle costs money but to me Safety is a priority for you and the Family, so worth a check out - Dave 🙂
