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.

    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.

    17" winter tyres. Will never go back to 19"

    Just bought a set of wheels for the winter. Good Year Ultra Grip Performance SUV 215/60 R17. Went for 17" instead of the 19" the car was delivered with. What a difference! What a soft ride! I guess I'll never go back to 19" ;-) I even think the car looks better now... Probably some of you won't agree, so let's leave it at that. I'm happy, at least!

    Kadjar Facelift 2019

    Mitsubishi are already in partnership with Renault Nissan, I can’t remember who owns what but it’s a big group, Renault Nissan Mitsubishi Aliance 2022 already planning a flying car, maybe!

    Kadjar Facelift 2019

    I remember when it was announced on Scenic training and everyone was like WTF is the point in that, it probably cost an absolute fortune to develop for probably absolutely zero gain in the real world. Now with the tie in with Mitsubishi, we will start to see proper hybrids across the Renault range, starting with the forthcoming Clio and the Captur (which I have actually seen).

    Kadjar Facelift 2019

    It is a Hybrid assist, it doesn't do a great deal: ENERGY dCi 110 HYBRID ASSIST For the ultimate in fuel efficiency in the All-New SCENIC range Renault offers the dCi 110 HYBRID ASSIST. The 10 kW electric motor aids the dCi 110 diesel engine under acceleration to improve fuel economy. Under braking or deceleration the electric motor acts as a generator to recover energy and charge the battery, ready to be used when accelerating. Launching in 2017 It is no longer available anyway.

    Qashqai wheels fitted

    I had my 19" apollo alloys vandelised tyres slashed and rims damaged cost me a fortune to get repaired and re tyred, tyres were £216 each!!!! so after checking wheel dims etc i bought a set of 4 17" qashqai alloys with tyres for £175 taken from a 2013 model from ebay. i have fitted them to my kadjar and what a difference to the ride comfort compared to the 19" i cannot notice any control difference to the handeling at all. the only issue is that they do not have any TMPS sensors fitted so after looking on the web i can get 4 sensors for £125 they are 407004CB0A TYRE PRESSURE SENSOR PART NUMBER. another option would be to buy a TMPS emulator to turn the tyre warning light off other than taken the car to a renault dealer who can turn this off using a Clip device . i have attached photos of the wheels fitted as you can see they have centre caps with the renault badge, i used the original nissan caps as they are 55mm as oposed to the renault which are 60mm. all i did was buy some renault caps from ebay pressed out the badge and stuck them on the nissan caps.

    Sat Nav towns and road names missing

    Ive Just discovered a way of displaying the name of the road you are driving on without having to have a destination set. If you go into the full nav screen, and tap on the bottom right menu icon, select Where am I? and voila, it gives you your road name as you drive and your co-ordinates should you require them!

    LED fog lights (how to)

    Great advise - thank you all above. One thing to add to foglight bulb changing - you need to remove the connector before rotating the bulb anti clock wise or I found it wont come out - the connector must catch on something. Once I did this all good. You were right to say do nearside one first to get more room to see the job, then use 'muscle memory' to do the off side one which is obscured by the washer bottle. I just removed the wheel arch liner 3 screws: bottom screw, and then inside edge lowest and one above.The wheel arch liner can be bent carefully to get an arm in - but it has a sharp edge to it so I used a rolled up cloth to protect my arm when wearing a T shirt. The fog light bulbs from Ebay you linked are a good colour match to the factory DRLs and the full LED headlights I have on the Sig Nav S model I have ( 1.2TCE EDC) .

    4WD version tyre types

    Hi. ROXY1234 as you say tread depth in an ideal world best same but also do not forget different tyres / makes have a different rolling radius for same size of tyre that is to say different revolutions per mile so could in theory upset 4x4 but I suspect this was all taken into account on that drawing board , will I think be more of a problem in locked 4x4???

    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😎😎🥃🥃

    First: with temperatures below 3 Celsius AC wont' start because of freeze protection. second: to dehumid windscreen press designated button for this operation... third: if the temperature is above 3 celsius just turn on AC... and all windows will be dehumid within a minute or two fourth: my auto AC blows mainly on windscreen below 15 Celsius and on front nozzles above 15 Celsius.

    Speed cameras on sat nav

    I can’t believe there are so many people having various problems with the car everything works perfect on mine apart from a little rattle on the drivers door trim.

    I had a Ford s max before the Kadjar which was much better software wise. I am now waiting for Connect Services to ring me but I’m not holding my breath. Renault Uk say they want to address my concerns but still won’t admit the sat nav fault exists. I’ve done a video which I am thinking of uploading to UTube perhaps then they will do something about it if it results in negative publicity?

    New Kadjar finally arrived

    Finally collected my factory order Kadjar Sig Nav Tce165 today. Titanium Grey, Parking pack premium and side steps. Very happy so far.....(Don't you love that new car smell). No obvious build problems that I can see (yet). Android Auto fired up with no problems which was my main R-Link2 concern. Early days, only had it a few hours so need a while to get to know the ins and outs. I fitted a QQ+2 17" Spacesaver wheel and ditched the gunk the Kadj came with. The BOSE subwoofer fits perfectly in the wheel. I would never have known to do this without the very helpful and informative posts on this Forum!!

    daytime lights fault

    My November 67 Plate (UK Model) only has front DRL's illuminated when engine is running. Rear lights initiate once the DRL's are off through either auto lights mode or manually switched to side lights or main headlights. Most new cars I have seen in the UK adopt this as standard.

    daytime lights fault

    Just been out to check ours (Uk spec 2016 model). In daylight, lights on auto. Unlock car - front drl's and and rear lights on. Start car - front drl's on, rear lights off. From UK Gov website, "DRL activate automatically when the engine is started and remain on unless the headlamps are switched on. They may however remain off in some low speed and stationary situations. In general all other lights should remain off when the DRL are on but for a limited period some vehicles may be available which automatically activate the rear position lamps at the same time as the DRL."

    Powered tailgate for the weekend

    I absolutely love this I have to say. I am partial to giving things a go myself but I am afraid that even this is too much for me given the number of features that you have added! Nice one though, you have added a couple of features that I believe should have been added to the Kadjar anyway!

    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.

    We have had "total engine failure" warning several times now. Been to the garage and they can "see" the error in the log but no solution yet. Third time today and needs to go back again. usuallŷ it clears when you turn everything off and restart.

    As in the diagram from 1964, use a trim removal tool insert into the slot on the underside of the panel, its fairly deep, use the tool to pull towards yourself giving sharp tugs until the clips release. Once started use your fingers to ease the rest of the panel off, there are two cables on the back. This gives access to the screen, which looks as though it's held in with four screws, there is NO need to take these out I repeat don't take these out. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
