Vel Satis - Tyre Pressure Sensor

My tyre pressure sensor isn't working on the Vel Satis and I've got the message "SENSOR FAULT" on the display. It also shows a diagram of the car, but doesn't show a pressure for any of the wheels. The problem was initially intermittent, but doesn't work at all now.

I'm assuming (hoping) that it may be just a bad contact, presumably near or on the receiver.

I haven't got a clue where the receiver is. searching through the forum I've seen references to it being under the car or in the boot, but I can't see anything!

Can anyone help (and save me some renault garage bills )

Thanks, Avantone.

I have the same problem, it is a connection a loom, it costs £16 but fitting is £75 as it needs to be run through the car.
I did have it looked at during warrenty, but the fault soon returned. It may be worth contacting Renault Service Care to see if there is a recall. As it maybe a commom fault. This I will do next week and let you know.
