They then said "let's hope the weather improves and doesn't get cold again."

Does anyone have any idea if :
1. This is legitimate?
2. It's a case of just disconnecting the battery / radio to perform a reset?
3. Renault sell cars in Norway or Sweden; if so, do they listen to their stereos?

Seems to be a problem on some cars.

My 07 Scenic II's radio works fine and we have had temps - 14c this year never had a problem on my 05 Scenic either
