The dealership were able to provide me with the code which does unlock the unit until the next time I start the engine where it asks me for the code...

    Hi, I've noticed recently that my car doesn't start so well after it's been particularly wet i.e. has rained or even after the car has been washed. It's very sluggish and the car shakes quite a bit. When moving the car it struggles to accelerate initially. It happened this morning. After the...

    Hi all - love the Koleos and it is a great towcar. Can anyone point me towards which switch and where on the engine or radiator, controls the twin fans? Mine fans start shortly after the engine is started and then stops and starts regardless of temperature so I guess the switch is busted. I can...

    I have a 2004 Renault Scenic II. Recently, when starting the car there is a loud clicking sound that appears to be emanating from behind the binnacle. It stops after a few seconds so I am guessing that a gear that opens and closes the vent is stuck or broken. Any ideas of how I can fix this...

    Hi all again... My problem yet again is the wire on the clutch pedal keeps breaking, its been replaced and the same thing happens. The brake wire is no where to be seen, so never used that when starting car. My question is, is there a way to bypass the block or another way to remedy this...
