Renault Vel Satis - Clearing fault codes

The engine fault light came on in my Vel Satis months ago, and at the time I took the car to a local main Renault dealer.

For the princely sum of 130 they used their diagnositc computer to tell me the second Lamda sensor was broken, and needed replacing. For a further 250 they would do it.

Now, call me an ungrateful sod if you like, but 130 for 5 mins work on a PC, and 250 to replace a small unit costing about 100 - COME ON!!!

Anyway, I told them to stuff it. The car passed its MOT as it was. Recently I had the car serviced etc at a trusted local independent dealer, and he quoted me 150 to replace the second Lamda sensor. Great I thought. However, he does not have the software to clear the fault codes and turn off the dashboard light once the job is done.

So, I call the local main dealer again, and they quote me 85 to clear the fault codes. You have to be kidding!

So, my question is, does anyone know anyone who might be able to perform the simple task of clearing some fault codes on a Vel Satis for anything less than 85?

cleared up

well Fred

Dont know if you had to fork out in the end but I purchaesd some software and bits for 23 on EBAY and cleared the faults on my 2002 2.0ltr expression. Still have other issues but well worth the money as I can use it on all other OBD and OBD11 cars (VW etc) so shoul dget me a pint or three form the boys

You can get just a reader if you dont have a laptop handy it will do the job just the same(bit more expensive though)
