Its a really comfy car, I really like it!
But it did come with some "quirks".
* First, the electric window on the left side (thats the drivers side here in Sweden) doesn't work. And from my searches this seems to be a classic fault.
But when I go look for a spare/replacement part on eBay none of them seems to fit this car when you input the model type and such :\
* Second, the cruise control is acting a bit odd. I can't decrease the speed when its active, increase works, but not decrease. And when I hold down "-" for a couple of seconds I get a "Check Cruise Control" message.
* Third, another classic. The instrument light only seem to work when I start the car, then it goes out.
Now the warranty is long gone on this car. And I've read that there are places that fixes this kind of error. But is there a kit or something that lets me fix it myself?

firstly the windows, i found if you remove the speaker that you have access to the window controller wiring, checking connections here can help. Cruise conrol, connection problem or get someone to plug in diagnsotics and get codes.

Interesting. Just any OBD2 system or do I need something Renault-specific (Like Citroen uses Lexia)?

That would be the CLIP system right?
