2001 scenic dci engine wiring loom problem
Hi, I just bought a 2001 Scenic DCi Sports Elize - after a couple of days the glow plug light came on and engine started missing. After eliminating
valve and mass air flow sensor, I discovered that when I was leaning on the air filter casing, engine missing started and light came on.
I realised that it was the wires going to the injectors, which had chafed through in places and I guessed they were shorting out.
Looking at the state of the taping on the wiring, I think the previous owner had obviously had problems with it and decided to get rid of it.
I have tried retaping sections of wire that I found damaged but every time I think I've cracked it the problem is still there.
Has anybody had a similar problem and if so could they advise a fix as it seems the only other alternative is to fork out £370 plus VAT to Renault for a new engine wiring loom.
Currently in jono's garage:
