But, after fixing the ignition fault, the dashboard computer no longer indicates mpg or "miles till empty".
A visit to my local independant with a diagnostic computer, a reset of the dashboard computer, and once again all is well.
This has happened TWICE, so I don't think it's a coincidence.
My question is, surely a failure of an
should have no impact on the dashboard computer. Is this a software "bug", or has Renault built in a requirement to reset the computer (at great expense) following a minor fault?
Has anyone seen the same symptom?
