Scenic II - Rain / Light Sensor
I recently purchased a 2004 Grand Scenic 1.6 Expression.
It's a great car but got a couple of annoying issues as I cant get an intermittant wiper (it's either on constantly or off) or the auto lights to work.
After taking the sensor behind the rear view mirror apart I don't get any amber light or reaction when covering the sensors myself so believe this is where the fault is.
My hoepfully quick questions are:
1. With it being electrics is there a fuse that I should check first and if so where can I find it?
2. If there is no fuse should I assume the unit is faulty? If so it has a date stamped on it of 03.11.09 so what's the chance of being able to swap that with Renault as it's less than a year?
3. If I do get a new unit (either free swap or paying for it) then is it just a matter of removal and fitting the new one in place and connecting up?
Thank-you in advance for any help with this, I did search the forums and found where others had bought a unit and replaced to fix the problem but wanted to check things properly before I fork out £90ish.
