I have a 2002 Renault Scenic 1.9 DCI

The electronic fault warning light (also heater plug on light) intermitently comes on with no apparent problem.

The light will stay on from 10 seconds to 60 seconds say.

It always seems to come on when driving up an incline then goes off after the top is reached or it comes on when you throttle then goes off when you release the throttle.

Hello and welcome to the forum.:)

Your symptoms match those of a small boost pressure leak in the turbo system or a fault in the boost control system,but ideally you need to have the fault codes read with a decent Renault specific scanner and that should point you in the right direction.

I have checked the turbo hoses, they're all secure. The throttle response has not changed, should I just ignore this then?

I definately wouldn't ignore it,you need to have the fault codes read at the very least,sorting it out now will probably save you money and hassle in the long run.

I went to the garage and paid £40, they printed out the following;

Connect to sun scanner and read ecu memory for faults, intermittent fault stored with egr valve flow p 1826, cleared fault from system and reset, no fault present on road test, customer to monitor, if fault returns a new egr valve will be required.

The electronic fault warning light still comes on when you throttle, then off when foot is off throttle.

What is a egr valve and how much is it? Where is it situated, i.e. is it in a tricky place?

The garage estimated £500, but this includes changing front brake pads.

That seems a lot,when the egr valve probably needs just a clean as they coke up round the port,as mine did lost power up hill ,light would come on ,so maybe clean it first ,see if that works ,some usefull threads on here if u type in egr valve .

I had the same problem too on a 16 month old Laguna Mk2 (2.2) with only 16k on the clock. :crazy:

Both the turbo & the EGR valve had to be replaced, fortunately for me this was all warranty work.

Sounds to me like you got a short somewhere you would need to get it plugged in to a obd2 computer to see what fault code it's registering :)

Thanks for your replys I will remove the EGR valve and clean it to see if that fixes problem the person I bought the car from was a teacher so he used it for short journeys to and from work, I heared that diesels need to be booted give it a blast now and again

Also I seem to have a problem with the trip computer not working even when the engine is off and the ignition lights are on I can't seem to cycle through the trip computer
Anyone had problems with there trip computer on a Renault scenic 1.9 dci 2001 model

Hi Steve your post on the renault forums I to have the same problems as you and I'm going to remove EGR valve and try cleaning it to see if that will solve the problem . One thing , does or did your your trip computer work cos mine doesn't when I push the button nothing happens even with the engine off and the ignition light on when it comes up with oil ok I push the button it goes to miles but nothing else could this be down to the egr valve .I have noticed that the EGR valve has 5 wires going to it so I'm abit puzzled
Many thanks....

Hi people here is a update on what has happened ,as you all I had some problems with my car the electrical fault warning light comes on while you accelerate going up hills if you take your foot of the throttle light will go out ok...
as I mentioned EGR valve changed that still the same made no difference what so ever took it to auto tune they ran a diagnostic on the car and found this......
heater plug circuit Renault fault code 1826
so he advise me to renew glow plugs , so I removed glow plugs cleaned them up they were covered in carbon oil I tested them by removing the glow plug and then disconnecting the battery using a wire (any type) placing the wire to the + of the battery and to the end of the glow plug (that's the end of which the wire was on) and then earth the plug if it heats up and sparks its a good plug tested all 4 all OK
scratching my head time........
the only thing left is the pre post heating control unit for the glow plugs this is located at the rear of the bulk head looks like a metal box that's the problem....
good luck

also I would like to add this I mentioned that my trip computer was not working found out 'Y' it was caused by a broken speed cluster (common fault on Renaults) got one from scrap yard with nice white dials of a rx4 model looks good + my trip coms working again...
