Re: HELP espace dead at the garage, now car less!!
It does matter that its a Renault dealer. As posted in my recent thread Halfords won't fit a battery to an Espace as they tend not to start afterwards.
If it was any old mechanic he may have come a cropper by working on the battery. A Renault dealer should be aware of the tricks and get it right. If he is and has evidence he is following the manual then you are just plain unlucky.
What I have learnt from my sorry experience is that these are very complex cars but its not magic, they should be able to trace the problem quickly and rectify it for you. If they don't then they are not trying hard enough and failing to use the manual properly or failing to use the Renault technical help line enough.
Have they go the spare key-card?
Currently in DrRog's garage:
IV Grande Espace 3.5V6
