View Full Version : Question Brakes Applying themselves

01-08-2014, 05:25 PM
I have an August 2012 Q3 TD FSI which is having an issue with loss of power whilst driving which is really worrying but most worrying is the fact that the cars brakes seem to self activate whilst travelling. By this I mean it feels as is the car is trying to brake the front left wheel and then the right and even the same feels like it is happening on the rear wheels. Sometimes both issues occur at roughly the same time and then at totally different times so nothing seems to link the two.
Also I have the issue where the parking brake does not switch off and I have to have the car recovered to the dealership by which time the issue resolves itself. When the AA/Dealership cone to diagnose all the issues no faults are being reported.
Car has just spent 3 weeks in garage and hey have not even grabbed for a spanner as they have no clue as to where to start.

Anyone heard of anything like this.
