Hi, I have a 2011 automatic Renault Grand Scenic & my Air Con is not working, it has been re-gassed & pressure checked & was told it might be the compressor. Could you please give me a rough price I can expect to pay for a new one please?

Answers

My 04 Grand Scenic was re-gassed and wouldn't work and you're meant to take it to be reset by Renault to be reset once it's refilled as when the gas runs out it tells the computer not to run the pump anymore. Unfortunately it doesn't tell the pump to restart once it's been filled. My hubby by-passed this and put a separate switch on the dash coz it was cheaper. Jennie from Northumberland

I have a Renault Grand Scenic 2.0 automatic which every so often will come up with 'Check Gearbox' fault then changes to 'Electronic Fault'. This mainly seems to happen when going up or down a hill. I had it serviced last year at a Renault dealer's and told them about this and asked them to check the gearbox level. The service was also to include a software update, but when I got it back it still had the problem. I would have thought they checked the level, but does anyone know if and how I could check the gearbox level myself? Thanks.

Henk Crous, South Africa

Renault Grand Scenic

I have a Renault Grand scenic 2005 petrol 2.0. I have a problem of low battery and stop sign flashing up on certain speeds. Three speeds so far, one at 64, 90 and 109 km/h. There are no faults recorded in the logs. Renault South Africa and Renault Wonderboom have had the car for 4 weeks and they gave up. They replaced many components and price tag was large. Now I sit with a fault and I do not know if it is serious or not. The alternator have been checked, battery was replaced. Before this fault started, the scenic did have a problem of losing power while driving, cam was replaced and catalyst was removed. Power is moderate. Please help?

Happened twice again this morning and pressing remote merely deactivated the beeping noise while the hazard flashing continues. I had to open the car and turn off the hazard warning lights. Also the battery was discharging and I had to leave the engine running to recharge. Any ideas what the underlying problem is?

The key card keeps reading card not detected, have changed battery and still not working. Is there anyway that you can re programme the key card and what battery should it have in it just in case it's the wrong one?

Answers

It's a key fault, mine is the same, it needs a new key I`m afraid. You can get them repaired at some places and it's around £150 rather than the £350 for a new key card! I have managed to bodge mine temporarily by twisting it when in the slot, watch YouTube for a temp fix but you need a new card I`m afraid! syace from Worcestershire

Purchased 2011 GS tomtom less than a week ago, cd player has never worked even though radio works fine, any ideas? car was mot'd a week ago now the "check parking brake" comes on first thing in the morning and when leaving work at the end of the day, even though brakes are working fine with no problems. I have been reading blogs on this problem and am growing increasingly concerned that I am going to have to fork out a lot of money. Car was purchased from a main dealer and has 3 month warranty but I know that some of these warranties are not worth the paper they are written on. Please someone help

Renault Grand Scenic

Hi, my Grand Scenic 1.5 diesel hydraulic clutch cylinder was replaced and a new battery fitted. When the car broke down, the clutch pedal went down and stayed down. I parked the car and switched the engine off and engaged into first gear. The recovery truck came and pressed the start button without putting the gear into neutral, it blew the fuse off the battery and the dashboard went off and never came back on. The electrician checked all the fuses and replaced the damaged fuse, but the dashboard (cluster instrument) is still off. I found this strange that the dashboard will need replacing due to an electrical fault as it is the 2nd generation 2009 model. Any advice or help is much appreciated. Many thanks

Answers

Chris, There was a known issue with the dashboard eletrics on Mk II Grand Scenics. I have an 05 plate where the dash went blank. Renault main dealer had to replace it for me as it is a Renault fault but due to the age and the mileage on the car I had to contribute £100 to the cost - not a bad deal. Take it to your Renault dealer and complain - good luck Ian from Northamptonshire

Hi, I bought a 55 plate Grand Scenic less than a month ago. Since we've had it we've had problems with the dash. It flickers on and off while you`re driving and everything resets. After speaking to the person we bought it from and being fobbed off constantly we had a huge problem this morning. My husband tried to come home after a night shift and the dash said "card not detected". After spending £220 on getting the car home we contacted the seller again and was told "sometimes this kind of thing happens and it`s completely unrelated to the dash problem", which is still on-going! I've found out that there is a fault with Renault dashboards and many cars have been recalled to replace the dashboard. I was wondering if anybody would know if it was at all possible if the problem with the dash (resetting all the dash settings daily) could have also caused the key card to also eventually reset, causing it not to work in the car anymore? Please help!

We had the car towed by the RAC. As a result they released the electronic handbrake. This was all fixed and reset. Ever since when we go downhill (applying the foot break and not accelerating) the break warning light comes on. As soon as you accelerate it goes off again. How can I get rid if this and there seems to be nothing wrong with the brakes but an annoying message and beeping.

Hi. I've just bought this car with about 60,000 miles on the clock from a car dealer. It had a service done and new MOT certificate, but my question is when pulling away in first gear the car goes then jolts a bit then goes again, it`s fine in the rest of the gears while moving, it`s just in first when pulling off. Is this a problem I need to know while I`ve got 6 months warranty or is it just me? Thank you for your support

What colour and rating is the fuse for the cigarette lighter? Is it located in the fuse box inside the glove compartment or in the one under the bonnet? I have located the one in the glove compartment but there is no diagram and the handbook supplied with the car is of no use.

Answers

It`s a Red 10 fuse, it`s in the middle section of the fuse box. Best I can recommend is you disconnect the battery and then pull a few out and inspect them. I can`t actually recall specifically which one it is off the top of my head. Robin Baxter from Nottinghamshire
