    Mine was also fitted at dealership, because of OTS I drove it to principal main dealership. I know a receptionist and few mechanics there so I am sure that programing with CLIP was in place and still failure... BTW, it should turn off only rear sensors not BLIS... even in my case blind spot detection works, only error on park assistance.

    When trailer connected, the dashboard states "Trailer connected: Blind Spot Alert deactivated"  (or similar) - comes back on when trailer unplugged.

    Where does the loom plug in?

    The loom piggybacks several connectors for sensors, brake lights etc etc etc then (and this is what took me ages to find!) there is a power lead already in the boot taped up to give the power to the towbar electrics.  Of course the constant/switched live for caravans requires seperate wires running - the part number for the loom is on the instructions for the dedicate towbar....   I picked the most expensive option, but it does look best and no warranty issues and no bumper cuts with the drop down towbar...

    New to forum and would like to do something opposite. Change consumption from mpg to l/100km. I am living in UK but come from continent and my mind is set to "normal" units:)

    I have change display units to km but consumption stays in mpg.

    Any idea how to change it?


    It's a dealer only change I'm afraid...

    I'm just about to connect mine up for the first time, so that could be very useful. Interesting to note that one of the bits of info from the salesman was that the Renault retractable bar/electrics was designed to turn off parking sensors automatically. I'll post again when I've got it hooked up.

    Fitted genuine Renault retractable towbar and dedicated electrics myself - all works well, sensors go off (I've got Signature Bose edition) when trailer connected, as well as disabling blind spot alert, however this is only because it needs programming by Renault to do this (you can't do it from R Link - it's a Renault CLIP programming job I'm afraid, so main dealer only).  Mine was done whilst it was at the dealers for something else at no cost to me after I'd fitted them!

    I would love to know how you add a 'name' to your addresses.  I have only found country, town, street and house number fields to enter. Even the user manual only mentions addresses and not names. My address lists only addresses in alphabetical order.

    Are you still having problems?  if so - I'll go and do it on mine and remind myself how I did it, that way I can talk you through the steps - at least that way you'll know whether there's a problem with yours or not.

    I won't go into detail about my views on the teachers. Words like lazy, incorrect etc spring to mind. Having had to deal with them to get the boy though GCSEs this year we decided to ignore them and sort tutors ourselves as they could simply not be trusted in this area.


    Are you a fan of Michael Gove by any chance?  he too was someone who thought he knew about education whilst having (I presume) never been employed in the sector.  To slate the entire profession as lazy (oh that'll be the holidays chestnut again) and incorrect (because you know better no doubt - home schooling is an option, you know - good luck knowing every topic in detail to degree level) is naive and I will treat your remarks with the contempt they deserve.

    Besides, are tutors not just teachers?  To employ ones own tutor when you think they are lazy and incorrect is economics of the madhouse, surely?  Oh but your selection was probably the complete opposite; hard working and accurate - amazing what results you can get when you're one to one with a student - I'd love to have that!

    I think you should spend a month working in a large comprehensive school as a teacher and then say teachers are lazy and incorrect - you may just adjust your view after you've been sworn at 3 times a day, marked 75 books in detail and done a 40 hour week every week.

    Run the engine, press MENU, press NAVIGATION, press the 3 lines symbol at bottom right of screen, press VERSION and you will see the software that is loaded for maps. Individual software for various elements of the system can be found if necessary by clicking on DETAILS.



    If it is ok for you then I would be interested how you save the NAMES and ADDRESSES of your destinations. I cannot find any way to save the names so for me the system is useless. If I have 5 addresses saved for a town how do I find out which one applies to whom? Never had a navigation system over the last 20 years that could not save the names to make use of the system customer friendly. Equally never had a mobile phone that could not save names for number retrieval. Same rules should apply for both.

    Do you mean in your address book?  I have several places stored in my address book with names against them rather than just locations.  Is that what you mean?

  8. Just noticed on the French technical accessories page that there are a number of parts that you can buy to remove the back seats and extend the floor, then put a metal division into the car to effectively turn the Kadjar into a small van.

    Why go to the expense of a Kadjar just to  turn it into a van?  Although having said that, I for one would be happy if I had to drive a van for work and someone gave me a Kadjar!



  9. Also found these part numbers if anyone wants a different coloured case for their key instead of the white one....  

    Certainly these part numbers work on allcarpartsfast - they claim to be able to get parts from France, so may be possible to order the shark fin through them?

    I think you will find that you got extremely lucky with your dealer Tripleh and they were able to think for themselves and order one in under the radar.According to UK head office the Renault part is not available to U.K. Customers.

    The Renault part number is  77 11 780 552 and can be ordered in the UK.  It's a plug and play thing inside the drivers door.  the part (loom) is about £60...
