Re: Jump Start Earth Point

I had to jump start my megane last night.
I put the cables directly between the battery terminals of the two cars.
It started fine and nothing blew up.

Re: MK2 Cc roof issue

I have had a failed Temic module, and in my case there were no "jolt" noises when operating the switch. Both my rear windows have failed over the years and become stuck down, and in both cases it was because the mechanical steel cables that raise and lower the glass had snapped and become ...

Re: ABS/airbag lights on and more

I've done a bit of research on Can Clips and am a little wary of buying a clone which of course it would be. There is a bit of luck of the draw involved in this. I am still on my first Can Clip, but in less time than my one has lasted a friend is now on his third. The main point for consideration t...

Re: ABS/airbag lights on and more

Hi, The first thing is that I strongly suggest you buy yourself a Renault Can Clip Diagnostic It is designed for professional Renault mechanics and did take me a bit of time to understand it, but it will tell you everything you ever need to know about the hidden internal workings of your Renault car...

Re: megane 1.9dci check injection

Hi, Check Injection is just a generic message that can mean many different things. You could either continue to spend a fortune on replacing more and more parts in the hope of eventually getting to the correct one, or you can plug the car into a Renault Can Clip and it will tell you what is really w...

Can Clip Statuses and Parameters screen

Can anyone tell me please what the significance is of a row shown in blue writing rather than black on the Can Clip Statuses and Parameters screen?
For example, this screenshot here shows PR089 Vehicle Speed in blue.

Many thanks.

Re: Balancing of wheels by special machine when wheels are in car, and a wheel can not be balance

My thinking was that as the diameter of the driveshafts and even CV joints is tiny compared to the diameter of a wheel, then there would need to be huge amount of imbalance or movement for it to feel anything like as bad as an unbalanced wheel. If it was me, the next thing I'd do is to jack the fron...

Re: Balancing of wheels by special machine when wheels are in car, and a wheel can not be balance

While the wheel is spinning using the on-car balancing machine, can you watch the driveshaft, cv, hubs etc. to see if you can see anything wobbling?
Is there any sign that the driveshaft could be bent slightly?

Re: Engine wont start 1.9 DCI 120hp

Hi,
You can either spend many weeks of your life trying to guess what is wrong, or you can buy a Renault Can Clip diagnostic box and a suitable laptop to run the software, and it will tell you exactly why your car isn't starting.

Re: Cannot lock the car!

If you are sitting in the car and press the central locking button on the dash, does that work?

Re: My Renault Megane II 1.9dci 2006 engine is turning over nicely but not starting, engine light does not come.

Well realistically this could be something as simple as you have run out of fuel, or as complex as total injection system failure. The correct thing to do is to get the codes read from the onboard computers using the proper Renault Can Clip software and this will tell you what is wrong. The other ap...

Re: Confusing warning alerts and complete engine shut down

I've just checked the official Renault Workshop manual, and the error message "Injector Problem" isn't even listed as an available warning message on the 1.9DCi F9Q engine.
Sorry, but I don't think I can be of any more help.

Re: Confusing warning alerts and complete engine shut down

Can I check please, does your car definitely say 'injector problem' or does it actually say 'check injection'? The reason I ask is that 'check injection' covers much more than just the injectors. For example I have had 'check injection' come up caused by a bad connection between the throttle pedal p...

Re: Complete engine shut down while driving

Your original problem - I noticed a flat spot with the accelerator, sometimes when pulling away there was no response but after several quick pumps it would respond. sounds like this problem that several of us have had over the years with a faulty brake pedal switch . Yes, I know, you are probably a...
