Re: help with emissions light on please.

The emission warning comes on when the sensors in the exhaust have detected gases outside their normal parameters so you may have an ignition or fueling problem which should be investigated. Although it is possibke something may have been disturbed during oil change.

The spanner symbol may be due to the service mileage counter not being reset.

Re: help with emissions light on please.

Hello, I have changed two in-line coils to solve a lumpy running engine and all is well now but I still have the Check Emissions warning, even with the engine not running. Is there a way to reset the warning without going to a Renault dealer please?

Yes, Get a cheap OBD Reader & Software. My first was an ELM 327, some come with software for less than £10 on FleaBay. If you ain't got a laptop, get a bluetooth or WiFi one & the Torque app (free) for your Android phone).
