Re: Renault Laguna 2 - 1.8 16v Throttle Problem*FIXED*


As mentioned before I still have problems with my F4R 2.0t vel satis, complete fuel injection faults...
all important modules were replaced: ECU, body throttle, acc. pedal, ecu-throttle wiring, wiring with pedal,... but still no luck
also new FW on ECU

The problem remains; fuel injection fault, ...and all related faults: body throttle, acc pedal, ESP, handbrake, happens very often (in two days after leaving the R garage)

Well, yesterday it happened again. I have opened the location of ECU; and found that ECU connectors have like silicon gel inside the pin hole, that connects to ECU pins.
I haven't done anything else, but just as I could clean away these silicon.
After that I started car with no problem... Could this silicon gel be the problem of insuficient electrical connection of modules to ECU.

Did anyone heard about like silicon gel issues?

In one post for Clio, there was also mentioned that wires of ECU were worn by the metal housing, causing the short circuit to ground.
Currently in samof's garage:
VS 2.0t
