Re: Renault Scenic - Faulty Coils Causing Warning Light(Including General Info)*fixed

well i think this thread just saved me around 100+

just got car back from garage (an other story ) drove to the shops 7miles away done shopping went to drive home got out car park car kangarooed then emission check light came on so up road and on to here found this thread removed all the coil 's and sniffed them yes SNIFFED them found 2nd coil had an acrid smell (smell this a lot at work with u/s actuator coils ) so phoned local motor fit and got one for 27.90 plus VAT fitted and problem solved.

Thats my cars 3 strikes in the last fortnight :

1st rear indicator 1.98
2nd o/s/f window motor and regulator (thats the other story) 325
3rd second coil pack 27.90

TOTAL 354.88 ouch and m.o.t in 2 month
