Renault Clio: Anti-lock braking system (ABS)

Renault Clio Owners Manual

Under heavy braking, the ABS prevents the wheels from locking, allowing the stopping distance to be managed and keeping control of the vehicle.

Under these circumstances, the vehicle can be steered to avoid an obstacle whilst braking. In addition, this system can increase stopping distances, particularly on roads with low surface grip (wet ground etc.).

You will feel a pulsation through the brake pedal each time the system is activated. The ABS does not in any way improve the vehicle's physical performance relating to the road surface and road-holding. It is still essential to follow the rules of good driving practice (such as driving at a safe distance from the vehicle in front etc.).

In an emergency, apply firm and continuous pressure to the brake pedal. There is no need to pump it repeatedly. The ABS will modulate the force applied in the braking system.

Operating faults:

  • and
    lit up on the instrument panel alongside messages “CHECK ABS”, “CHECK BRAKING SYSTEM” and “CHECK ESC”: ABS, ESC and emergency brake assist are deactivated. Braking is always enabled;
  • ,
    ,
    and
    lit
    up on the instrument panel alongside the message “BRAKING SYSTEM FAULT”: this indicates a fault in the braking system.

In both cases, consult an approved Dealer.

Your braking systems are partially operational.

However, it is dangerous to brake suddenly and it is essential to stop immediately, as soon as traffic conditions allow.

Contact an approved dealer.
