Re: management and service light on

Does the sensor need "coding" to the car management system?
Anyone?

Re: Keycard battery life - 24 hrs

Just answering my own question.. the battery in my key card is a CR2025. I have just replaced mine after it locked me out in bandit country (east Cleveland). I got in using the emergency key and started the car, drove it back to civilisation and bought a new battery from the only shop open on a Satu...

Re:

reset the service msg. look in the faq. The FAQ isn't correct. You need to put the card in, then press and hold the start button (don't touch the pedals), until the ignition lights come on. Then cycle the messages until the "Change Oil Now" message comes up. Now press and hold the reset b...

Re: Manual box to Auto Transfer ?

Why not just sell the manual car and buy an auto?

Re: Keycard battery life - 24 hrs

BTW, what IS the correct battery type for the Megane 2 key card (standard one)?
The manual skirts around the issue, suggesting you buy a replacement from the dealer. Yeah. Right.

Re: Keycard battery life - 24 hrs

I wouldn't risk removing the battery for any length of time!
I'd be worried that it would lose some crucial (RenaultSpeak for "expensive") setting..

Re: Changing indicator bulb

Oh My God!
You really need to dismantle the front end to change a bulb? FFS..
I am surprised there are so many still on the road - £100 each time a bulb blows? That would be about 1/5 of the car's value..

Re: Weird Locking behaviour again..

Sorry, we got our wires crossed! I meant the battery in the key card.. because it went apeshit when I got within range.. I agree with what you said about built-in obsolescence as well, and to make it worse, it will all have been designed by a committee, like everything in France.. Renault have alway...

Weird Locking behaviour again..

The Megane has started playing up again. Last night the locks went berserk as I walked towards it. Indicator lights flashing etc. I hadn't even pressed a button.. this is not the first time.. Did the usual - press lock and then unlock. All seemed OK until I switched the engine off and removed the ca...

Re: Megane dash is saying electronic fault please hwlp

Renault + water = disaster.
It's the main cause of all door/windows/locks/whatever faults. Anyone would think they don't have rain in France?

Re: The Dreaded Steering Lock Issue

Hi All I know this is fairly well documented on here however, I have been unable to find any information as to how to remove the steering lock if the lock will not disengage. Has anyone had much success in removing said steering lock when it is locked on and will not come off? Would I be able to br...

Re: Constant Humming/Droning Megane II

I think that's more to do with front wheel bearings?

Clutch problems..

The clutch on my 1.6 petrol megane slips in high gear, for example when accelerating from a roundabout. Is this likely to be an adjustment problem or a new clutch? If so, what's the going rate?
