Hi there, I've got a 1998 Laguna RT. I'm having the same issues as many folk in the threads, my battery will slowly drain away, apparently when the car is out of use?
I'm on my third battery and alternator has been checked!
The weird thing is, when I got my friend to jump start it from leads, the battery charged back up really quickly, the car would start absolutly fine for 2 days, then it drains again, everytime I start up, the engine turns over more slowly, until it doesnt have any power at all. Saying that, even if the battery cannot turn the engine over and even if I leave the car a few days, the central locking and internal lights always work?
Is this a typical issue with Renaults? It seems so by the amount of threads, and has anyone actually found the fault?
