Angry digital dashboard problems


I have an 03 scenic ( new shape) with just 26k on clock. Recently the digital dashboard has been playing up. The whole display disapears so I can not see anything however it has come back on a couple of times. To me it suggests a loose connection somewhere ( all other electrics incl lights etc work fine).

Explained the problem at the local dealership who told me the whole instrument panel needs replacing at a cost of 500. Not at all happy with this. Can anyone advise me please ?

If it's a problem with the dashboard,then you might be able to get it repaired.....try Googling BBA Reman and see if they can help you.

I'd rather push my Alfa than drive a BMW....

A local garage are going to send it off to repair the dash and refit for me they are going to charge 280 for it.

Mileage is jumping all over the place gone from 26000 to 40000 !!!!!

When they repair it will the mileage go back to normal ?

Its very depressing reading all the threads with problems with Renault. Are they really that bad ?

Feel like selling it and getting another make
