Hi, I have a 1.5d grand scenic with start stop 2012 model. Recently when I stop at traffic lights and the start/stop is activated, when I start the car up to pull away the orange spanner, abs and check vehicle flash up. I have had the car for 3 years and its only just started doing this. Ive had it to Renault and they say theres nothing wrong with it and its the car going through its self diagnostic routine!! surely it would have aways done this? Also it thinks the back seatbelts are always fastened and then it beeps and flashes as if they've been unclipped, this happens when the back is empty and also when they are fastened. Its been in to renault 3 times for this to be fixed and yet its not. Has anyone any ideas please.

I've just had a new clutch/flywheel fitted & since, the sensor on the front passenger seat doesn't work. It was fine before, could this be a wiring fault from stripping the car down to access the clutch or does it need replacing. Thank you

I have a 2005 Renault grand scenic which starts up first time every time but has hardly any power it's really frustrating! It's fine once going but if I slow down it just has no go in it even if I put my foot down I can't build it up again does anyone know what the cause of this can be, my husband says the clutch needs replacing but he's no mechanic so can this cause these problems? It's really embarrassing trying to drive it and getting to a point where I can no longer drive it on the motorways as I can't build the speed up quick enough

Hi I have a 1.6 petrol grand scenic expression and this morning it decided not to turn on. No warning, we've plugged it in and there's no error codes. The only thing that's different is the steering. I put the key card in, tried to turn it on and the steering unlocks then a message pops up, steering lock off remove key. If I do that the steering lock will go back on but unlocks again when I try and turn the car on. Has anyone experienced this or know how to fix it? any help greatly appreciated as I love my scenic!!

Answer this question

martin, Leicestershire

Renault Grand Scenic

Ho been getting a warning come on my dash saying stop check injections system. Had it diagnosed by local garage and its all pointing towards 2 things boost system fault and cruise control module fault. The fault is intermittent and i noticed lack of power. the vehicle is lacking power now as if a hose has split, but no sign of any breakage. The dash also says check de pollution system as well, and diagnostics say no DPF found although there is definitely a DPF on the vehicle is it possible someone has deleted this from the system rather than replacing?. Engine starts first time every time first turn, so scratching my head a little as to the problem, would the cruise control module cause all this or any of the other things mentioned. Any help would be great thanks Martin

Fiona Peart , Devon

We are having intermittent issues with our steering lock. Sometimes the car will start normally but increasingly it will fail to start as the steering lock is locked into place and wing mirrors remain in the closed position. The steering lock has been replaced but the problem still remains. When the car fails to start the dash displays the message "Turn steering wheel + START". Never had this problem until it failed for the first time in August 2015. Can you provide any information or advise?

You can usually close the windows with the key card this no longer works either. My parking break light has now come on saying check it. I have checked all fuses and they are fine im now stuck.

Hi with our car when we go on long jurneys when we start the car up a wearning light comes up saying stop battery charging fault can you plz help me on what mite course this to happen

Answers

The alternator might have spoilt. For my case, the warning light come and go off intermittently at first, then one day it just stay there. If you continue to drive with the warning light on, the battery will run flat and lose power steering while driving. Then the car will not run and you have to tow it to have the alternator replace. This is my personal experience and happened to my 8 yrs old Renault scenic. leslie from Singapore

Check to see if your battery negative has a plastic moulding on it ,we have a modus and on putting the battery back I could not tighten it up it still moved looking at it it has a piece of the molding in between the clamp ,so ripped the molding off and then the clap did up, let's face it with a Renault you need the best connections you can get ! peter hicks from Bournemouth
