Hi i have a renault scenic 2005 1.6 dephaser solenoid shut down the car when connected so when i disconnect it it works fine any idea about the problem
How should i know if there is an update for the ecu because i asked many garage and said that they don't have an updateThere have been many reports here of that solenoid draining the battery after engine switch-off .....................
Guaranteed the issue is NOT the solenoid (for this problem of draining the battery anyway).
You need to attack this thing methodically - the ECU needs a firmware/software update - this is most often the correct answer - the ECU drives the solenoid and supplies power to it and is also supposed to remove power from the solenoid after engine switch-off.
I would not do anything else until you have the ECU running on the latest software.
Once that is done and the solenoid can no longer drain the battery, one can investigate further re the stalling thing - I suspect that will also be cured at the same time
Unless you have a Renault Clip or equivalent scanner that can also do software updates you will never know - its not information freely available to the user (even to me and I can help myself most the time).How should i know if there is an update for the ecu because i asked many garage and said that they don't have an update
