Answer this question

Mike, East Sussex

Renault Master

I have a 1999 Master 2.8 turbo diesel converted to a camper. The stop and engine symbols have come on and off periodically for many years, including before it was converted. I have toured all over Europe without any trouble. No garages have managed to diagnose the problem including Renault specialists. The code readers reveal nothing. The temperature sensor and sender were suspected at one point and were replaced but to no avail. Recently the lights are remaining permanently on and is driving me nuts! The van still runs fine, is regularly serviced and has only done just short of 70k. Can anybody shed light on my frustration? Many thanks Mike

My 2011 Renault master dci100, has developed a service light and CHECK INJECTION, but it starts first time every time ,I have no loss of power at all can do 70 mph, its not slow on the uptake at roundabouts, no black smoke, very good fuel economy getting around 42 miles to gallon runs like a dream, I have read it could be this and that,my question is could it be just a read fault on the EMC, I have reset the offending warning when i do my gear selection comes back on but only for about 15-25 miles then back to square one . help

dave corso, Cumbria

Renault Master

RENAULT MASTER RADIO TIMEOUT My RENAULT MASTER has been converted into a motorhome. Great van, only problem is to do with the radio once the ignition has been switched off - After 20 mins the van battery goes in to battery economy mode and switches everything including the radio off. Frustrating! HOW CAN THIS PERIOD BE CHANGED?? The ideal solution would be to change the power supply of the radio from the ignition battery to the leisure battery but this isn't viable as the radio is integrated in to the satnav and engine/electrical management system and the ultimate 'controller' is a signal from the system rather than the appropriate battery bank. so short of changing to a different radio and losing all the satnav and other capabilities the only solution is to change the cut off period using the renault diagnostic software. My local Renault main dealer says it cant be altered. But they are a recent convert to renault (previously a land rover dealer) - I dont think they know all the ins and outs of the renault diagnostic software. Does any one know of a dealer that can do this?? thanks in advance

Answers

You emphasise that it's not overheating, just something is over-pressurising the system. The most likely candidate is a leaking cylinder head gasket or a crack in the cylinder head or cylinder block. Have your cooling system sniff tested ie they check the cooling system for any combustion products which would confirm the above. Why did you change the thermostat if there was no overheating?

Hi, my 2013 Renault master vans side door warning chime/beeping is driving me mad as keeps beeping non stop whilst driving even tho side door is firmly closed. Is there an easy way to turn sound off?

Answers

This is a common problem with Movanos and Masters that main dealers can't even seem to fix. Mine had the door contacts swapped twice and then Vauxhall took it again and had it for 3 days and still couldn't fix it!!!. Some people say it's because of over sensitive fibre optic cables in the wiring and slightly misaligned door runners & contact pads but whatever it is it's a major production flaw at the factory level. The only "temporary" way I've found to get around the problem is to put a strip of masking tape over the side door contacts every time I need to go out in the van. The warning alarm will still sound when you start driving but it will stop after 20 bleeps. The only issue after that is that you can't toggle through the display on the dash and "door open" is always displayed but it's a small price to pay to escape those mind bending beeps!! Please note: You won't be able to lock the doors while the tape is still over the contacts so remember to take it off whenever you want to lock the van. Doing this procedure every day was a serious hassle for the first few weeks but I've been doing it for 3 years now and it's just a daily routine. Hope that helps. steve from Staffordshire

Hi There , I had the same problem on my 2010 master. I discovered that if you undo the contact on the side of the van ( not the door ) and put the pinky coloured cable in with the brown it solves the dreadful beeping noise and the dash display will be as it should. The only downside is that the indicator shows that the side door is always closed even when it's open. I hope this helps. Dazza from Greater London
