Re: Renault Kangoo - Diesel Starting Fault*FIXED*


I had some starting issues with my Kangoo van last winter. In the end I had a new top quality battery and glo plugs, the van has been starting alright ever since even in the recent freeze. One tip with with the immobilisor issue, if you need a new key. Ask for an emergency key. I got an emergency key from the local Renault dealership for 25. This key, although it does not have the remote feature it does however have a new immobilisor chip built in. You can unlock the door manually and start the van with no problem. A lot cheaper than the 130 they quoted me for a new remote key.

I hope this helps.
