  2. Engines
    Hi guys, I have read loads about possible solutions to my problem and they boil down ultimately to two very likely causes. First, the car. Megane 53 plate 1.6 VVT Dynamique (petrol), one previous owner, 103,000 on the clock nice car so thought I'd have it. Within a few days engine light on...
  3. Older renaults (pre-1992)
    Hi guys I'm looking at a very nice Trafic T1100 - T31a (4x4, 2.2l 70kw petrol) this weekend and wanted to ask the experts what I should look out for. The car belonged to firefighters and is really well kept. It only has 35000km on the clock, and I'm inclined to believe that (guy (2nd owner...

    Hi All I'm looking to replace my current Renault a 07 Clio with its bigger sister the Megane. As I don't have a huge budget I'll be looking at a second hand model. Obviously I know I need the radio code (my first Clio never had one), manuals, tools etc and I've heard there's an SD card for...
  6. Transmissions
    I have recently purchased a Kangoo. It is a converted mobility vehicle. It is 5 years old and has 5k on the clock. In the last 50 years I have driven many different automatic vehicles. The handbook that I was given, does not say much about the box. I cannot find the dip stick for the auto box...

    Hi, suddenly yesterday my Megane II 1.5 dci 2003 started playing some weird stuff. I pressed the Start button, engine started as usual and all sort of warning lights, hazard lights, windscreen wipers went on. The display showed a warning message "Electronic fault". The car then wouldn't switch...

  11. Heating & cooling
    Scenic I Dynamique Plus. Heater fan not working but climate control lights up and indicator for fan speed goes up and down. This is not the same as the problems that seem to have been discussed so far as I can make out. First attempt - thermal fuse in resistor pack as listed in forum...

    I’ve got a 04 Espace 2.2 DCi and it’s going into limp home mode (sound familiar!?!). I’ve tried a few things and read a lot online (so I know this isn’t a quick fix problem) and now I’ve written it all down and have some questions. Sorry it’s a bit long but it does summarise a lot of stuff I’ve...
  14. Electronics
    When I went to start the car this morning, it just cranked without firing. I noticed the imobiliser light was still flashing - suggesting that the imobiliser was still active (used same key as I always have) and then I also notices that the indicators, wipers & electric windows didn't work...

  16. Vel Satis
    Thought i'd start this new thread as there were quite a few Vel Satis owners chating on the "Vel Satis Problems" thread, but its title seems a bit negative. Perhaps if all problems, questions or general chat relating to the Vel were posted here, then it would give us all a focal point of info...

  19. Electronics
    When i told a friend of mine i was buying a new Renault Laguna II SportTourer i was greeted with a huge intake of breath and warned "Don't go near Renaults - they have terrible electrical problems". Ignoring this advice I purchased it anyway and i must say have been very happy for 6 months...

    Servicing your Renault at main Dealership? What the Hey??? I just booked my Lag 2 V6 for its 4-yr service at a Renault dealer. I'm wondering if I've done the right thing. A couple of weeks ago, I was there and the set price for this "36000 mile service" was £320:( . Today, it was £413 :eek...
