Hi, I'm buying a 2004 Renault Scenic Expression 16V Green 1.6 Petrol 5 door MPV. The heater doesn't work, so I'm not sure to get it or not. If it`s the start of on-going problems, I don't want to put my family at risk. I know the pollution light is a big tell, so if anyone can let me know, it would be very much appreciated.

Answer this question

Henk Crous, South Africa

Renault Scenic

I have a Renault Grand scenic 2005 petrol 2.0. My model was not listed in the selection boxes supplied. 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?

I have a Scenic 2003 1.6 16v. It was going fine then suddenly when pulling away at a stop it lost power completely and the revs climbed it did this in all gears it accelerates fine and as soon as you change gears it loses power.

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

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?

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.
