Re: Renault Scenic I - Heater Fan Fix

Excellent thread, just wanted to share my experience.

I too had no heating on levels 1, 2 or 3, only 4 was working so I popped down to Maplins and purchased a 89p Thermal fuse.

Although the photos were slightly different when I got to the resistor, it was close enough so was a huge help.

I took out the resistor and tested the fuse and it worked. That stumped me, I didn't have a new resistor to replace it with so I put the car back together. I too popped out the left passenger vent to help reposition the ducting.

Once back together the fan worked on all levels. Occasionally disconnecting and reconecting the wiring does the trick. Just like turning the computer off and on again often fixes the problem.

Although I won't be returning the Thermal fuse, cost me more in petrol, technically this was a free fix!!
