Hi, :) , Ive just bought a second hand megane P.REG and there are a few things wrong with it that I could do with some help over :confused:

1, Drivers door lock .... you put key in and it just turns and turns but doesnt lock it!. Theres a button inside car with a pic of a key on it, when you press that you hear a click near fuse box but still nothing ( can't lock it at all ... DODGEY !!! ). :steam:

2, When you are travelling at a continuous speed and let your foot off throttle the gear stick moves forward in a jolt, ANNOYING !!! :crazy:

3, The stereo doesn't work, where is the fuse for it? what number is it and what rating is it?. (Have kids can't concentrate without tunes! POTENTIALLY DISASTEROUS EFFECTS !!! :steam:

4, Above the heater is some sort of digital display, this doesn't work but I'm trying to work out what the display would show if it was working? Stereo? Clock? Temperature?.

:) PREMATURE THANKS TO ALL THOSE WHO CAN HELP ME :)

Oh the rest of the car is sweeeeeeeeeeeeeet :rofl:

1. Sounds like to lock mechanism is dis attached from the CL, open door, remove door card should be able to see further. There is probably a metal rod floating about.

2.Sounds like a loose engine / gearbox mount.

3 Either the stereo needs the code re input (if original) or there is a fuse gone. Check wiring behind stereo but fuse should be in main box. Not sure on Megane but could be under passenger glovebox.

4. Probably the stereo display. If OEM stereo should work when stereo does, unless backlight failed. If non OEM you need a connector lead to get it working.

the fusebox is on the drivers side under the beam adjuster

Hi there !! Know the feeling !! Bought a secondhand megane myself and am leaning fast where all the scrap dealers are ... Anyway enough of my prob's !!

1. Sound's like the door lock has come away from the inside... I have the same with my pasenger side !! Will be dealing with it tomorrow !!! Will keep you posted.

The button with the "Key" on it is the internal lock. If you can get in/out using passenger side ? Then you can press the central locking from the inside (to lock all the doors) and then get out the passenger side and manually lock it ( at least a little security until the other prob is fixed ). Even when the doors are locked from the inside you can still get out from the inside..... You need to try this and then check the doors from the outside to see if it had worked.

2. Mine does the same though not too excessive at the moment.

3. If this is an original stereo then you may need the code for it (did you get all the manuals with the car? ) could be in with the paperwork. Might be worth getting a new stereo you can pick them up pretty cheap and are easy to install. The speakers are pretty good when you get it going. Fuse box is as previous thread on the drivers side under the beam adjuster.

4. The display above the heater is for the radio ( right hand side, when working shows station ) The left side of the display is the clock and the external temperature. If this is dark (should be orange numbers) then the back lights are broken. You can access this by :

1. Removing the speaker covers on the top of the dash, these pop in/out. You will then see the speaker, plus 2 screws ( these are T20 type ) unscrew the one towards the centre of the dash ( the other is for the speaker). You then need to prise the dash towards you and up ( it will need a bit of work, the top of the dash will then come off).

2. You then need to remove 3 screws from the "Multifunction Display" as it is known. There will be about 3-4 connectors these can be pulled out for ease they only go in one way so putting them back should be OK.

3. The "bulbs" can be seen at the back of the MFD either black or blue plastic and square in shape, they are twist in/out. They cost about £1.20 from any renault dealer. After you have replace them you should have your display back !!

4. Put everything back in the reverse order. Easy..... Hmmm...

Will let you know about the free turning door lock tomorrow...... Good luck !!!!! Vroom vroom.......
