    This is whats happening

    one week in and the vote was pitiful, its as if no one was bothered, well thats ok it was still democratic. I have now resigned as your moderator and taken the position of admin on the new site effective immediately . i am moving to https://renaultkadjarforum.com/ and i recommend you do the same. the core membership on this site are the best i have known on any forum, they are helpful and tolerant and i would welcome you to the new site to continue to give your advice, whether you own a Kadjar or not. I want to thank you for your understanding over the least few months i might not have answered as quickly as i would have liked but i have done my best, working with one hand behind my back. so they say one door closes and another opens, well lets all open the door on the new site and i await to welcome you there.

    Great end to the year.

    Half the people participating in this forum appear to be easteren europeans, including me. There's no need to be politically correct, just don't blame the origins of an idiot. The fact he was born in EE doesn't mean we are all idiots, just as not all the islanders are Ainstains, right?

    This is whats happening

    this is what's happening i have decided the problem here is choice some of the members can't decide a simple concept of voting, looking at the view rate to votes, well it doesn't take a genius to see that. so i am deleting my posts the vote, the domain choice everything. the two members have registered their domains and are building the sites they wish to offer. members will be able to choose the site they want from what's on offer. when they are completed this will be up for 1 week after that, i will stop modorating this site, I will be moving to the new site and invite everyone to come with me. i invite all members to copy the topics they feel are the most important and paste them to the new site. crap posts will be deleted i have copies of all the pdf and links to video files and will be posting those to the site, so its the members images that need to be moved. i will put links to the new site around the old one so people will know where we have gone i will send MM my resignation and that will be my job done here. I have been offered an Admin post on the new site, this i am considering at the moment. this site might keep ticking along until the fees are due or it will crash. without moderation this could be sooner rather than later. I have done my best to keep this site going and its the best option i can offer. i would like to thank you for the support you have given me over the time I have been Moderator. Shedder101

    Get the Logfiles from R-Link2

    Are you interested what your Kadjar does when you push the start button? It's easy: just create on your Fat32 USB stick a folder named after your R-Link version, in my case logfiles_mm2014 and inside another folder called logging So the path on the root of the USB stick is logfiles_mm2014/logging If you put the USB stick in the car before starting the car you will end up - after having started the engine and keep it running for some minutes - with 4 folders inside of the folder logfiles_mm2014:

    No Light in Glove Compartment :(

    Think we need to put this one to bed as 1st posting on this was way back in 2015 . So just to clarify and correct me if I am wrong, light in glove box appeared in models from 2017 so if you ain't got one and you really want one, you need to put your own one in and if you have a 2017 model you should have no trouble in finding your gloves. Could the last person to leave turn the lights off please👀

    LED headlights

    Sorry, but allseason tyre has all bad properties of winter and summer tyres joined into single product... it is basicaly intended for unsolicited users who averagly did less then 6000 miles in whole year equaly... it has just average grip on dry, wet, snow and ice and has quite big wear. And after 4 years becomes kind of plastic with poor performance even on dry asphalt. Winter tyre is not just for snow, it has better performance in lower temperatures because of different material mixure... in the other hand, summer tyres has better resistance on higher temperatures. Milestone is 15 Celsius... so you will probably ruin winter tyre in summer on motorway at high speed... and all season is compromise... poor performance in summer and in real cold winter. my oppinion.

    Door lock/unlock button

    I’ve not replaced the button but I’m sure they are available on eBay. I put LEDs in the handles. Are you sure it’s the button, if the car can’t see the card it won’t work, like JC says if the the card has a low battery it becomes intermittent. Also if it’s close to a mobile phone this can sometimes swamp the signal. it should be covered under warranty as JC said as well.

    Kadjar 4WD owners

    You forget two facts. 1 - My fuel consumption is measured with two adults in the car and two cildren. Total of 275 kg. 2 - Im comparing two equal engines, one coupled with a 2wd gearbox, and the other with 4wd. What it has to do wirh the other brands? I'm saying the 4WD vs. the 2WD is noisier, more expensive and with more fuel consumption. So, what I'm saying is, in my opinion all these benefits are not worth for 98% of the drivers. That's it

    clutch judder - am I alone?

    Had the same issue with my Kadjar 15 Diesel Boyco, but all does not sound as bad as it seems. Had mine serviced today at a Renault garage and i explained the problem to them and they said they would get there technicians to take a look. When I picked the car up they explained it wasnt clutch judder it was the traction control which kicks in if the sensors on the car detect the wheels spinning up. ( its even explained in the user manual). The traction control system applies the brake momentarily to stop the wheel spinning up and the driver loosing control. makes sense to me and explains why it seems to happen more frequently in cold weather.... cold tyres means less grip more spin. Hope this helps you rest your fears.

    Just turn on ignition (put car into a gear and press START button for at least 2 sec). Move between functions on BC with key on right side of wheel... now there is new position SERVICE after milage... press and hold OK button and now you will enter into this menu. It will shows miles/months to service and oil change.

    Great end to the year.

    As someone who, in his working life, lived and worked in Europe for over 25 years, I am well aware that other countries have roughly the same rules and regulations as we do. Wife'sKj's letter was in no way racial. He was, as I would have been, so pissed off that he was spitting blood. Had the other driver been British he would have written the same letter but substituted Eastern European gentleman with "some moron from Leeds/Glasgow/London". Understandably so in my opinion. We all know that we (here in Britain) have more than our fair share of idiots on the road so don't make an issue of something that isn't one. Happy New Year.

    Wife'sKdj was stating the facts and not making a comment on Eastern Europeans. I realise that we live in a lunatic politically correct society but hell, was your comment necessary?

    craks in the body

    Apparently it was the inside panels of the sunroof. Went to the dealer for the 2nd time, they inspected it and they tore it down and assembled again. No noise now for quite some time.

    4WD version tyre types

    Hi Yes i know what you mean I to prefer all tyres same on 4 x 4 but in auto back only comes in if front rotation is greater than rear so if front tyre is larger then it will have to slip more for rear to come in if front is smaller then it will in theory cause rear to work sooner maybe all the time now that said what if you use front only for say ten thousand miles now fronts are worn and now smaller so if you engage auto will it do any damage I would not think so , so the answer is no, don’t worry but I would go fo all same when new shoes needed JC😎😎🥃🥃

    În my Kadjar the front is on only when the engine is running. The back one stays on as long as the electrical system (lights, navigation ) is on. Since I unlock the car until it switches off (couple of minutes after locking) I have power in the back one. There is a click sound that you can hear if you stay in the car and lock the car, and that sound is the switch that cuts the electrical input to the unnecessary consumers in the car, including rear socket.

    LED headlights

    Probably your previous cars were with tighter tires. The 19" are both wider and it's quite a big size for wheel, so the contact spot to the ground is much bigger. Combine this with the Conties and you're a sledge on the road.

    Diesel or Petrol

    We do mainly short journeys and have a low mileage too [<5,000 a year] We used to have a 2L diesel Zafira Tourer and the particulate filter warning came on 2 or 3 times a year - quite inconvenient to "...keep driving..." when we had a deadline to pick up kids from school! So we went for the 1.2 Petrol. The car is fast enough, the engine warms up quickly and is quiet. Consumption isn't great [25mpg around town (lots of cold-starts) and 35 mpg A-roads] I wonder if there's any low-mileage diesel owners who can tell you if the particulate filter is a problem in the Kadjar?

    Fuel economy

    1.6 dci - today we made 600 km in extreme traffic and traffic jams in the austrian and italian Alps (Villach-Kitzbuhel-Insbruck-Bruneck-Villach). No ECO mode, 4 people in car (275-300 kg approximately). Final readings - 56.5 mpg (5.0 l/100km). Best reading so far for such conditions (including 30-40 km urban). About 60-70 km with a start-stop traffic and speed of maximum 10 km/h.

    Kadjar 4WD owners

    Kadjar is my second 4wd car. I will always buy 4wd cars. On winter motorway the car is stable like a tank. Today on snowy street, rear axle was driven up to 35% during normal city driving. No extreme conditions are needed to make 4wd useful.

    Traffic Subscription Due To Expire?

    We all make mistakes sometimes with the various things we buy. My latest was buying a new Kadjar two years ago rather than a Kia Sportage. On reflection it would have made more sense to give up the Bose sound system for an extra 3 years warranty.

    Thanks Guys, I suppose years of learning with low-power motors [1.1L Escort, 1.3L Marina... ] comes to nought and I need to go back to school. Going to cover my inadequacies and buy an auto next time, or perhaps the 1.6 petrol. Or maybe the wife will trade me in for a newer model...

    Newbie!

    If you're searching for a big boot, I'd recommend a Scenic. The reason I bought a Kadjar is Renault desided not to sell Scenics in my country (and most of Eastern Europe). So I moved on to next vehicle from their gamma with big space. But still I would prefer the Scenic.

    One touch windows module

    I am pretty upset because I have one touch window only on driver side. I am not sure if this problem was already solved but I found something interesting on German Forum. So, for those like me with this problem there is a simple solution here. I beg your pardon if this issue was already solved. I am not updated with the last posts... (but caching up fast).
