Apparently the AA are upgrading the fault dignosis software on all of their patrol vans. The new software will now report engine and electronic faults with a simple message 'It's a Renault' :lol:

Having read through this again you may want to call renault uk back (and back it up in writing) explaining exactly what meganeboy has pointed out - the car has only covered 22,000 miles and has only ever been worked on by authorised renault techs so either the fault is down to faulty renault parts o...

Well, turns out there's nothing wrong at all. On the way home last night, the light was off, and stayed of this morning on the way to the dealer. Thought I'd better get it checked out anyway - they couldn't read any fault codes from the computer apart from "a few very old ones", so they have reset ...

I have that noise also, I took it in to be fixed and they must have used a deaf mechanic for the job because it still does it - I just turn the stereo up now and amuse myself by waiting for one of the monthly random electronic failures that my car likes to exhibit.

Re: Heater control illumination

Renault will only consider the illumination failing as a warranty issue if the backlight is by LED's, not standard lamps. Renault want to charge 2 hours labour to check and see, so I need to do it myself. Excuse me for being dumb here but erm Renault built the damn thing, they should know wether it...

Don't really know what to suggest, you could always have it towed back to them if Renault demand more than the price the local garage quoted plus the towing fees after diagnosing the fault?

Thats the annoying part - when the megane is working and behaving itself it's a fantastic car, it's just let down by being as reliable as a chocolate fire guard

To be honest I would wan't a proper renault diagnosis before I parted with that kind of money and as the garage are storing the car for you for free I think I would probably pay to have it towed to a dealer.

It is still under warranty luckily enough and I was tempted to just change the coil anyway but the second fault code reading has me concerned that the coil replacement wont work. Also I'm pretty sure that when the coils really are defective that that the engine management light flashes - pretty sure...

Thats quite spooky - Focus and Astra are two of the three cars im considering replacing my electronic disaster on wheels with - the third being another Corsa. Mind you I wouldn't mind a Corolla either.

If it's out of warranty it shouldn't matter where you take it as long as the garage you take it to is any good.

I hate to agree with you because the Megane is a lovely car when it's working properly. Unfortunately I just can't live with mine anymore because I'm sick to death of the constant breakdowns and electronics failures. My Megane is 2 years old and has already broken down 6 times, had the AA out 5 time...

Hate to say it but I have the same problem, lights on but no missfire. I had the AA read the error code off yesterday and it was reported as missfire in cylinder 3 (even though there was no noticiable missfire). The AA reset the error code and suggested if it comes back to take it to the dealers. We...
