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

Hi ive had my 03 scenic for exactly a week and yesterday i suffered the dreaded "toxic fume" light , after abit of googling i found these forums which have proved very helpful and even saved me money !

I was suffering many of the symptoms of failed coils such as engine cut out at idle,poor engine performance (especially uphill) very poor fuel consumption,spluttery excelleration

I replaced all four coils last night and noticed an improvement instantly BUT and heres my question..........

The toxic fumes light did not go out, i unplugged the battery and left it off over night but that did not fix the issue

is this light ment to go off by itself ? does it go off instantly or over time ? or is there a way to reset it that wont cost me a trip to a dealership ?
