Hi Again.

I have done a little inspection of the car and did find that each valve has a coloured ring and they are in the correct position. But thismorning when i started up and now the computer is detecting that the two front wheels are missing
I think i could live without this little toy to.

The receiver box located under the car can be a source of problems with the sensor readings. Might be worth having a look and checking connections for
dirt/corrosion/water ingress.

Stu if you take it into mr Renault Dealership they should be able to reset your computer and sort the annoyance out.

However as per previous post they has been a number of reports of the receiver unit getting damaged or falling off by driving hard through standing water as it is simply fitted to the underside of the car..It could be the sensors themselves as they have their own battery power which of course can die after time.

Edited 17/09/2006 - Original Sketch Copyrighted Information for which we could not get permisson to show unfortunately..

Thanks for the info. From the diagram I have located the receiver and is all in tact. I dont want to start pulling connectors out and such as i dont want to make the problem worse, however I have the car booked in to Renault under my Warranty.
If one day i decided to replace the alloys, would it just be a case of swaping the sensor's over to the new valves.

Also I have noticed that all underneath the car looks damp and oily a little, would this be from the aircon.

That's the best piece of advice you can give any Laguna II owner. I've suffered from corroded metal caps twice. First time round was a bit of a surprise, but the second I should have known better. The fitters had put metal caps on (because they look nicer with the alloys) and I kept putting off sorting it because I was thinking "they can't have corroded on yet." Around six weeks later I got around to doing it - got one off, but broke the valve stem on the other and had to use the spare. If you have metal valve caps, go outside and take them off this minute! Don't wait until you get around to buying plastic ones, because it may be too late (assuming that it isn't already.) Some might disagree, but I'd rather leave the valves capless than risk the metal ones corroding on.

It's not so much the expense as the hassle. My last two new tyres took a day and a half to get sorted thanks to the pressure sensors. The actual sensor also has a habit of separating on the inside of the wheel, throwing the wheels well out of balance. I thought someone must have warped a wheel on my car because the steering was vibrating so badly, even after balancing. It turned out that the sensor unit was loose inside the wheel, and adding weight to it wherever it happened to be sitting at any given time.

But worst of all is the fact that a sensor fault makes Carminat practically unusable - you lose 1/3 of the map! But then the whole multi-function LCD display thing is badly thought out. There is a way to disable the system (the dealer has done it for me before when they didn't have time to fix the fault) but they won't tell me how to do it. Maybe it needs the diagnostic computer, or maybe they just don't want to give anything away. They told me I'd have to take my car back when they forgot to reset the service interval, but that was sorted simply by pressing a button!
