I have only had this car 3 weeks and it’s already been nothing but trouble :(
Now the sat nav has no signal and the radio only works on the front left @ normal volume, front right 20% volume, rear right 60% volume and 0% from rear left speaker.
The radio has always been this way so I’m looking to buy a replacement.

I have updated the sat nav through TomTom home applied gps fix etc no change.
checked the radio connection nothing obvious.

I have also done a reset on the radio and sat nav.

I am really pulling my hair out and regretting buying this car.
What can I check and do to resolve this issue.
I understand the amplifier in the head unit might be failing but the sat nav was working until today.

I have 0 satellites detected.

My next question will be can I buy any radio of the same design be it from a twingo or Megane etc or does it need to be paired with the TomTom or car ecu etc?

Mucker I have no Idea
Nothing showing in the search function

@Scenic 11 bought a second hand radio for his, but no idea of what model
He could pop on the forum tonight
He should see an Alert and maybe able to help

I.C.E. has never been my strong point
Can condemn them and say need another
BUT what fits on a Renault dont even think Renault know

Ok as no one seems to have any knowledge of a scenic radio or TomTom unit this is what I have done.

1. purchased a gps antenna with a fakra connector from eBay for £5
2. Purchased a 2nd hand head unit with the same model number from renparts for £60

So watch this space for an update.
