  2. No Airflow to Windscreen

    Thanks for your reply. I was hoping it might be something simple, by it looks like it might be a visit to Renault.
  3. No Airflow to Windscreen

    Yes i had the same problem . it was a flap not working. had it repaired under warranty. Renault dealer gave me a loan car until it was repaired. now at last windscreen and front center vents all working now. the full dash as to come out took 4 days it's a known fault.
  4. I was driving my Kadjar yesterday and noticed that the windscreen wasn't demisting. I pressed the windscreen clear button on the Climate Control, but apart from making a loud blowing noise, there was no airflow at the windscreen. (My Kadjar is a 2016, 1.6 dci, Dynamic S, 4x4)I put the flow downwards instead and got airflow, but when I redirected it upwards, the downwards flow stopped, but still nothing at the screen.Has anyone else had the same fault, and was it easy to fix ? At this time of year it could be quite dangerous driving without the windscreen demister working.
  5. Earlier
  6. Good evening, I don't know if you have had this sorted or not by now? I had exactly the same thing with mine recently. Initially I just unplugged the siren as I couldn't take it in. When I did take it in Renault initially told me it was the bonnet switch not sitting correctly. This sorted it for a week or so then started beeping again. The car has now been back and had the main alarm module replaced which, so far, has rectified the fault. Good luck
  7. Hi all, Not sure if anyone else has experienced this but upon locking the car (either auto walk away lock or via the card) I get two long and very loud beeps. Have booked into dealers but was wondering if there was anything I can do? It's really loud and is bothering me 😖 Thanks in advance Shouvik
  8. R-Link 2 checksum is invalid

    Here's hoping somebody can help me with this. I have used a brand new 32GB memory stick(flashdrive). I inserted this memory stick into my Kadjar(67 plate) and the R-LINK folder was automatically placed onto it. Then,following the instructions I inserted this stick into my laptop, and started the downloads.This "seemed" to be done correctly, If I open the R-LINK folder on my memory stick I can see loads of these "mappackage_tt_FEU_mid_2017_12-part1" Next I inserted the memory stick into the USB slot on my car,it started by stating "preparing installation" then "Validation checksum" followed by "checksum failed". I reinserted the memory stick into my laptop & R-LINK wanted to re-upload the map of Europe. Now I am at a total & complete loss.
  9. 1.2 TCE petrol engine noise

    Tried my wife's 1.2 with circa 7500 miles on clock and I did not detect any rattle similar to yours. I would get dealer to check.

  12. Spacesaver swap?

    I am actually selling an unused 40300ey40a Wheel and 135x90x17r Tyre ready fitted and balanced. My Bose subwoofer fitted perfectly.
  13. Do I like my £24k Kadjar?

    i had door open warning for a while as i went round corners -caused all sorts of messages to flash up -engine cut out etc, bit of head scratching later (20 miles to dealer) worked out it was micro switch on drivers door -momentary breaking contact if my weight went against door, i could not see a way to adjust it so i stuck a foam furniture pad (packet from a £1 shop) on inside of door to make contact with end of switch- tried it with a band aid type plaster first which worked . though it was caused by the seat belt buckle getting caught when door was shut and slightly bending the metal at switch mounting hole. Marked end of switch with a felt tip and closed over door this gave me a location for the pad- i know you should not have to do this with a new car sir , but at least one of your front door switches may be at fault.
  14. R-link problems

    I hope you can soon get it all sorted. You will see from my posting "Do I like my £24k Kadjar?" what I think about the car. I've also had, amongst other things, problems with R-link. Oh how I wish I hadn't bought this load of French sxxt!!!
  15. R-link problems

    Hi all, I’m having problems with the voice recognition and also the speed limit, voice recognition stopped working about a month ago but now the speed limiter has also stopped working but still showing the sign on dash. has any one had these problems and were they fixed.
  16. My Kadjar (1.5 diesel Bose Edition) is now two-half years old. This is the state of play today..... 1. Pinging warning noise all the time I drive 2. Door open warning message on dashboard 3. Parking brake shown as "on" even when it's off 4. Interior light on all the time 5. Can't lock the doors Do I like my Kadjar? . Wished I'd bought a Kia Sportage instead!
  17. Is the 1.5 diesel engine chain or cam belt if it is cambelt when does it need changing. Thanks
  18. Smoke

    My Kadjar 2005 1.6 diesel started to smoke from one of the glow plug wires. Just been serviced today at renault any ideas
  19. You can order a shark antena as an accessories trough Renault botique... and for LED fog lights I think that the best solution is to order a kit for H11 from AliExpress as I did. IMHO better look with rounded foglights in MK1 then in MK2 with squre one...
  20. The check anti pollution warning light has appeared on my Kadjar. Following advice I have taken it for blast up and down the motorway at high revs but the light is still on. I’ve not long been back. Is it likely it needs sometime to reset? There’s no other issues with the car, i.e no juddering or lack of power.
  21. Fog light on at front?

  25. Latest version of R-Link

    cannot sign in with this new page, also it doesn't recognise my email address. thanks, martin hall
  26. Hi Based in Denmark and got various issues with the R-Link 2 systems and active braking system - but that's another story Just stumbled upon this brochure: https://group.renault.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/09/renault-kadjar-en.pdf - There are the Kadjar with a Shark Antenna (which is not possible to deliver on the 2017 model) and also got Fog LED lights I made a enquiry to the dealer how much and if possible that would cost to mount on my car - but the dealer tells me that this are not available on the Danish market. Anyone have the knowledge that these 2 items would fit a 2017 model?
