C1142 Renault – Brake Fluid Pressure Sensor Circuit
Fault code C1142 Renault brake fluid pressure sensor circuit.This sensor converts the pressure of brake fluid to an electric signal and pass on it to ABS (Anti-Lock Brake System) actuator and electric control unit (ECU).ECU unit and ABS actuator monitors the brake fluid pressure sensor.When brake fluid pressure sensor in not upto specification unit the anti-lock brake system and electric control unit set C1142 fault code.
Possible Causes Of C1142 Brake Fluid Pressure Sensor Circuit
1.Faulty or defective brake fluid pressure sensor.
2.Defective ABS actuator and ECU.
3.Sensor harness open or shorted.
4.Poor electrical connection on brake fluid pressure sensor circuit.
5.Faulty or defective stop lamp switch.
6.Faulty vehicle dynamics control pressure sensor.
C1142 Renault Fault Code Symptoms
1.ABS (anti-lock brake system) warning light illuminates.
2.MIL or engine check light illuminates.
How To Fix C1142 Renault
