Re: Renault - Scenic II - Steering Lock Problems

Hi Guys,

This has happened to me three times this year so far. The last one being last night!!

Twice my car has failed to start and the steering wheel had locked. Last night this actually happened when the car was moving, luckily I had just come off the motorway and was on a dual carriageway. Suddenly the wheel locked and the engine died, as I attempted to pull over to the side (difficult without any steering) I was shaking at the wheel, within a couple of seconds the wheel freed itself and the engine started up again. Very un-nerving especially as I had the kids in the back!

Only had the Scenic (05 plate) three years and already had issues with the dash two years ago, then there was a recall last year, now this!!

The car is now out of warranty but is there anything help I can get from Renault CS considering its a known fault (having read this thread and seen others with the same issue)???
