limp home mode

Hi Kuldip

Welcome to the world of conflicting and differing diagnosis coming from renault dealers.My problem is similar in nature( limp mode) and the solutions suggested from independent and renault dealer include throttle body replacement, injection ecu replacement and pedal replacement.

After reading many posts on this forum
of all of the above parts replaced and still no luck i have been coping for about 2 months with the problem occuring within 10 minutes of every journey untill about 3days ago.

What i have been doing is shaking the wire harness of the E.C.U on the side and under the battery and also removing the fuse cover and shaking /tapping the relays.

I have done this on 4 of my last 5 trips with the problem occuring only on the trip i did not do it (third trip).

Can't say it's a sure fix yet , maybe someone will say if there's a problem in that

A little reason to smile.
