The garage cannot look at it due to the fact that they cannot get the software top run on thier diagnostic but said that they have heard of this happening before.

Called Renualt dealer and they want 70+VAT an hour to look at it and said if just a loose wire maybe around 300 or so if needing a new dash then 480+VAT for that plus fitting!!

We need to go to aberdeen to see the inlaws he has motor nueron disease and we need the car.

Do you know of anyone iether in around Strathclyde or in Aberdeenshire that can do this cheaper. all help gratefully received
Hi sorry to here about your problem but with a quick search through the forum it seems you might have a dry joint problem on the dashboard instrument cluster pcb board which can be repaired but it seems Renault would just rather replace them

Have a read through this link below and you will come accross problems that are the same as yours and some that are not and there is also phone Numbers that might help you get it repaired a little cheaper than Renault,

Iam sorry i can't help you with a garage in your Area or Aberdeen as iam in Dunfermline but i hope you get it sorted out soon,
