ELM 327 won't connect

Hi guys. I'm having trouble trying to get one of these units to connect via bluetooth to my tablet. I have downloaded torquepro lite, and it connects to my transit no problem. Has anybody else experienced any such connectivity problems? At first I thought that it might be a dodgy cheap unit, so I or...

Re: 1.9 dci massive hesitation at 3000rpm

So if it's potentially the ecu cutting off the power then this would suggest it's one of the engine sensors perhaps? I did order an ELM unit, but it wouldn't connect to the ecu. Apparently I need one designed for a diesel, whereas I didn't know there were different kinds. I have ordered a new one, s...

Few hints and tips in here..

Some say bumper off, others suggest by removing just the front grill.

Re: can't start up my engine

Is it possible that when you washed the car that some water got into the fusebox? Only takes a few minutes to take a peek.

Re: 1.9 dci massive hesitation at 3000rpm

The link is much appreciated, and it's good to hear of a pattern one still going strong. I will order one right now.. I have no friends crazy enough to own a Renault, so I'm on my own with this one :grin

Thanks for taking the time to get back to me!

Re: 1.9 dci massive hesitation at 3000rpm

Cheers for that. I had the same issue with a dead maf on an mgzt cdti a few years back. Sluggish under 2500rpm then picked up. I did try a maf off ebay but still the problem persisted. Where are you seeing maf's for £20? The cheapest genuine unit I have seen so far is closer to £70. Can pattern maf'...

1.9 dci massive hesitation at 3000rpm

Hi guys, my Meggy is suffering from a big stumble at 3000rpm. Everything is fine below that point, pulls like a train, excellent mpg (55-60 calculated not computed on a run) and as smooth as silk. The turbo was replaced by the previous owner 2 years ago. I know the maf is shot, as unplugging it does...

Re: front fogs not working

According to Haynes, the front fog lights fuse is in the engine bay, and it is listed as F10 20A ;)

Re: Uh oh, forgot the card!

I've often wondered how far it would go without the card nearby, as I assumed it worked on some kind of wireless basis. I guess that once the ecu has satisfied that the card is nearby to open and start that it forgets about it after that then? I found out that mine was handsfree by accident, as I we...

Re: Intermittent Lumpiness !!

I suffer the same with my 1.9dci. It comes and goes as it pleases, and mostly after long motorway runs too. My first port of call was to try cleaning the egr, but it's stuck solid for now! I have improved matters somewhat with an oil and filter change however. Plus I dropped in a new fuel filter at ...

Re: A/C and Demister switch

Also search for the air con pressure switch, as this can be a cause of the issues you have.

Re: A/C and Demister switch

First things that spring to mind would be to make sure your outside temperature sensor is working and not under reading, as the a/c won't switch on if the temperature is too low. Not sure what it is on the Renault, but on an Audi A4 I used to own it was 3 degrees C. After that I'd be checking all of...
