Re: Renault - Espace - Stop Light and Battery Light come on *fixed*
I had the same problem whilst on holiday in Devon last year. The same warning light came on and I had severely reduced power. I suspected a problem with the alternator not charging so went and bought a charger to use until I got back home.
This did the trick for a day or so as I put it on charge each night but whilst returning from a day out it did it again and the engine died.
In the middle of nowhere and without a mobile signal I had to leave the family and walk several miles to get a signal. To cut a long story short, we had to be trucked back to our holiday home and the next day paid £300 to have the car trucked back home as the local dealer diagnosed a knackered alternator and a delivery time of at least 4 weeks. The alternator is a type which also has a vacuum pump on it, apparently, hence the black hoses on the top. This meant a quote 0f £700 from my local Renault dealer. Eventually I went to a local independent garage who were able to do it for £460.
