Answer this question

Neville Newmarch, Darlington

Renault Scenic

I have had a Scenic 1.6 dci dynamique X mod Tom Tom with R Link for 8 months from new. For almost all of this time I have been plagued with regular intermittent dashboard error messages such as no fuel with alarm and hand brake on with alarm and check air bag faults all of which have been untrue and 'rectified ' after a few minutes or re engaged the key card. This has also included the electronic dashboard remaining on after the car is locked and flattening the battery or even the dash not lighting up when the car is started. Renault assist have been called over 6 times and resolved it by disconnecting the battery under the bonnet and reconnecting it. ( a reboot of the engine computer system?). This has been a short term fix every time. I have had the dash panel replaced and even Renault technicians in France ( where it happened 4 times in 2 weeks) couldn't sort it. Any ideas? This is my ninth new Renault in 35 years and by far the most problematic. It drives great and mechanically been excellent otherwise. Still got over 3 years warranty but running out of faith and trust in Renault.

Hello,when I take my key pad out, the steering lock makes the noise that shows it is locking, but in fact it is'nt and I can turn the wheel. Renault have no answer for it and keep pestering me to get it analysed,but the agent charges £96 just to do that,never mind fix it. And if he can't? Will I have wasted £96? Renault say its like a toggle that springs into place,filling a hole and securing the column so the wheel cannot turn, but if they have no answer who does? Help please. Julian Green.

Good Day I have a Renault Scenic 2.0l 16v, 2004 model. It does not want to start, I replaced the relay, a fuse in the fuse box, there is fire when I try to start but it does not get petrol through. I've had diagnostics done but comes out clean showing no faults. When I test the petrol pump it runs, I don't know it it can be the pump, how do I test?

Answers

Hi there, Had the same problem. Car would not start or if did it would just cut out while driving and must then be towed home. When for Diagnostics and it showed no faults paid like R250 ran for like 10 minutes. Then we took it to a registered fitment centre and left the car with them. They ran a diagnostic that and it took just over an hour to get a reading. Reading was the petrol pump. The replaced it and now that car runs very good and starts immediately. The diagnostic cost about R900 and ran for 1hour and the petrol pump was R3500. I hope this help Gillian from South Africa

Answer this question

T Kelly, Lancashire

Renault Scenic

My Renault Scenic starts up sometimes and cuts out straight away and won't run,but if you put left foot on foot brake and the right foot on the accelerator it fires and runs OK.

Answers

Hi I think the fact that the car sometimes starts when clutch and accelerator is pressed is a bit of a coincidence. You will probably find that it is the "Crank Sensor" that is causing the problem. The end of the sensor is magnestic and it collects lal sort of rubbish on it which send a wrong signal (or no signal at all) to the engine computer (ECU). The senor is located on the top of the gearbox bell housing where the gearbox meets the engine. If you push the pipework to one side and peer into the engine bay, At the very top of the gearbox to engine jpoint, you wil see two bolts going through a horseshoe shaped bracket (I think they are about 10mm blts. Simply remove the two bolts and lift the sensor out. Clean the end of the sensor (the metal tip which would be downwards when fitted). Refit and hopefully your problem should be solved. It could be that the sensor is no longer serviceable and a replacement is about £25. This is generally the cause of a lot of starting problems on all F9Q renault engines. Time to complete - about 20 minutes, only one spanner/socket needed, no mechanical experience necessary Hope that helps. Steve H from Cornwall

Hi Hannes I have checked on Autodata and the manufacturers have noted a fault which relates to the front suspension upper mountings.
