New Car, Laguna 2.0 Privilege, lots of questions!
I have just bought a 53 plate Laguna Privilege 2.0, with 54k miles on the clock. So far I am very pleased, although Ive only had it today, so not experienced much yet. I have noticed a couple of things, nothing serious, but I would like to sort if possible. Any help is appreciated:
1) I only got the car with one keycard. this is not too much of a problem as my wife and I can only drive it one at a time, however I would like a spare at some point, and the manual says that some settings may get stored on the keycard, so you can have your own one, not sure if this applies to my model? How much does a replacement set you back? Can you code them yourself using the slot in car? I have used OBD software and the like a lot before on BMW and Ford, what software does Renault use for coding, and can I code keycards with that?
2) I cant find the rear screen sunblind, the hooks are there in the roof, and the rear doors have theirs. Am I being blind (forgive the pun) or has someone nipped off with it?
3) Tyre sensors/system - It appears that 2 sensors are missing (well, 2 wheels have ordinary valves) however I cannot find any display that shows the tyre pressures, there are no warnings, no alerts nothing. Is it possible that someone has turned this off? If I get 2 new sensors and get them fitted can I re-initialise the system?
4) I like to mess around and get into the guts of a car, are there any features, hidden bits, computery things that are worth knowing about?
Thanks a lot in advance, Im looking forward to talking to you all.
