Hi, I have a Renault Scenic Dynamique 1.6 Auto. Any journey I make, whether it's a couple of miles or a hundred miles, the "Check Injection" light appears & the gearbox makes a shuddering noise. When I pull over and stop the car & take the Card Key out for a few seconds, I can re-start the car & the problem goes away but may or may not return again on the same journey. When I had a diagnostic Computer check it came back with " No Fault". Any help will be greatly appreciated

Answers

Hey did the u find out the issue with the check injection warning? I am having the same problem and now after having been told to ignore it because they are known for there electrical faults, my car won't start and still says injection fault. Just wondered if u had the issue resolved shelly from North Somerset

I've been having issues with my battery recently and have fitted a new one. But since this has happened, when I lock and unlock the car the beeping has stopped. I've taken the car to the garage today as my lights have stopped working too and I explained to the mechanic that the beeping has stopped and he said it shouldn't beep. Is this correct?

Hi. I have a Renault Scenic and it starts up perfectly but will not rev up more than 3000. Can anyone assist me? I checked timing, it`s perfect. I also checked compression.

Answers

Just had exactly the same problem, the egr valve and surrounding pipe work was blocked with sludge, it was so bad the head had to come off. Cleaned out the 1.5 Dci engine now pulls better than ever, make sure the egr valve gets cleaned every year with your service. Rob burns from West Midlands

Could be a break in the turbo manifold, this happened to mine, when u get to 3000 revs take ur foot off the throttle then reapply, do u get power? 180 for a new pipe!!! Cara from Shropshire

Hi. I have just had a new turbo fitted on my 2005 Scenic 1.9 dCi diesel. The oil feed pipes were changed as they were full of carbon and a new oil filter was fitted. I also had to pay for a new cat, total cost £1450. However the car is now leaking oil on the driveway. Is this something that might just need tightening up? I'm worried as I don't have the money for another big job.

After my battery went flat on my wife's scenic I started it using jump leads ?! It started ok and after a very long distance drive it's fine ?! The problem is now when I remotely lock the car with the electronic fob you hear a continuous bleeping sound from around the rear offside and near side wheal arch ? It's a bleeeeeeeeeepppppp that doesn't stop and I'm worried that it's flattening the battery so can now only lock using the little key in passenger door ?? Any help please ??? Nick

Answers

I don't have an answer but my wife's car also did the same. Is the Handbrake warning light on as well? If so clearing that will probably clear the other noise, it did on my wife`s. Nick from Essex

It's the alarm sensor. Try disconnecting the battery for 10 mins and reconnecting it again. Mine is doing the same, used to be 3 beeps now it's continous. Cara from Shropshire

Again could be a break in the turbo manifold pipe, if u take ur foot of the throttle and then press again will it go past 2800? Try it. A new pipe was 180 for me, I had again recently and pipe was fine, put some diesel red x in and it's running fine 50.8 mpg now x Cara from Shropshire

Prasad, Australia

Renault Scenic 2001

My car is a Renault Scenic 2001/2002 and it has a gear box problem, it comes in the morning or after long hours parking. After it`s run first 2-3 km the gear box problem comes and I cannot change gear properly. The dashboard indicates gear box symbol and coil symbol blows. After the engine is turned off I wait a couple of minutes and turn it on and then it works, but sometimes I have to do the same thing two or three times. I notice that when the engine`s temperature is halfway the problem never comes. I`ve had it repaired a couple of times by a Renault agent but it`s never solved. They erase the memory from the car, but it comes back after one or two months. Please help me?
