Hi, my 2018 qashqui has had a recent fault with auto hold function. It works when I 1st set off but somewhere along a journey a warning light appears and the auto hold stops working, resets after starting the engine. Is this a known issue?
Also have the dodgy condenser coil.
I've been quoted a lot of money from Nissan to fix and I'm annoyed with issues on a relatively new vehicle.
Thanks.

What warning light appears? Auto Hold is performed by the ABS unit and certain sensors will cause the ABS function to be limited (failsafe).

I got a national mobile Air Con company to change my Condenser...very good. Nissan is money looney tunes very often.

It's the brake warning light.

The suspension of Auto Hold and the Brake Warning light appearing point at an ABS related fault. However, the only thing you can likely do is ensure the brake fluid level is correct. After that is a Nissan job I suspect to investigate the braking system.
