I have an electrical problem ,listed on the control panel as “ version soft 9.5 “
the whole dash panel including , speedo, tachograph , fuel and temp guages
going erratic. Can anyone help! Also been having “system check” messages.

Would like to express thanks in advance.
Sounds like the fun and games I had with mine 3 months back.
Has it got to the point yet where you cannot turn the car off?

First trip into Renault and they told me there was nothing wrong with it, as I had took the battery off to turn the dash off etc etc it erased the on board error memory so there was nothing they could do.

Cost me £80 and 10 mile down the road it did it again!!

Found out in the end that the ECU and some other electrical section was water logged and all of the components were corroded.

They took all the parts out, (also showed me them as proof) and soaked them in some anti corrosion stuff for 3 days. I also had to have three fuel relays replaced.

Cost about £90 to do that.

Never had the same problem since.

Hope that is some help.
