CD disconnected = reconnect + code

I don't know the answer to your other 2 queries but I can tell you that if you disconnect power to the CD or disconnect the battery, you will need the code to make it work when you re-connect.
This is part of the Renault grand master plan to cause genuine owners as much hassle as the people who nick stereos.
As is the use of immobilisers, and crappy keys that fall apart if you drop them on the floor.

Vel satis cabasse audtorium


To all you guys who like me think the speakers on the vel satis are S***te and have a very poor sound system read on.....

Had to investigate this one after reading specs and saw how much quality the cabasse is supposed to have?..

Removed door card as previously explained in thread saw what I thought at the time were incredibly rubbish quality speakers held on with two lugs (mounting points) and had terrible bass quality from them with much rattling etc.. So I decided after padding them out with draught excluder which made no difference. To buy some good quality JVC speakers

Fitted JVC speakers with 4 lugs and still they sounded rubbish( no difference really) so then realised there was something else wrong.

After thought on problem behind door card is a really thick sound insulation rear guard which is made of some sort of fibre glass/card composition and is moulded to fit to door. What really matters is there is no hole behind speaker to let air freely move around so that is the problem.

to fix just cut 4in square roughly hole in rear sound insulation in speaker recess in door to release air around back of speaker.

Refitted renault standard speakers. Hey presto what a really excellent sound. just as should be from cabbase audotorium. (no need for other manufacturers speakers these are really good and show you what it should sound like from a quality system like what is fitted.. so returned JVC speakers)

Cannot believe that renault fitted the system originally without breathing holes for speakers as standard what an oversight!!!.

Anyway if you want your cabasse system to sound like it should do folllow above steps. you will not believe the difference!!! and what a quality sound system you really have in the vel satis.

Regards to you all..

Question Recall notices?

Hello to you all.

I was wondering if any of you are aware of any recall notices issued by Renault for the 2002 2.0T petrol.

Perusing the forum I have seen several references to various recalls/warranty covered issues, however when I contacted Renault was told that none of these affect my vehicle!

It may be that these only affect Diesel models??

Also, is anyone aware of any extended warranty available for purchase here in Ireland? (Badly needed let me tell you)

Also beware Velsatisitis, a peculiar condition which manifests as symptoms such as an empty wallet, extended off the road periods, purchase of extensive breakdown recovery insurance, and most strange of all.............. an unwillingness to change car and a tendency to grin inanely when describing to aqquaintences what a fantastic car you have. Its a bit like unrequited love!!!!

Happy motoring........
