  1. Towbar Electrics

    I have genuine Renault retractable tow bar with 13 PIN connection and genuine wire loom with connection module... my Thule bike carrier has 7 PIN connection so I do connection trough adapter. Renault botique offers almost same adapter as main for price of 30€ while I bought it for a half of price in general autoparts store. I will check out on Thule web site for replacement wireing on 13PIN connector.
  2. Towbar Electrics

    But obviously 7/13 adapter does not send signal to ECU. Maybe only if you have native 13PIN plug in.
  3. Only time I've got electronic fault was on my GrandScenic when brakelight switch went off on brake pedal...
  4. It is jus an electronic device... bugy Android, on top...
  5. 1.2 TCE EDC

    I assume you spent only one tank of fuel... right averaging will be shown after a few thousand miles... I have more than 50k km on the clock, BC resets 5 times (after 10k) and short after reseting average economic is about 15l/100km and dropping... after a few thousands km is stedy at 6.2
  6. Mine was also fitted ad delivery at the dealer's garage... for 750EUR (complete tow, wireing and labour). But connection module was already replaced twice. First time due to tehnical note in 2016 and second time this year due to electronic fault.
  7. You shouldn’t pull hard... did you fitted yourself or by authorised garage? When is in unlock position also beeping...
  8. When you pull metal cable in trunk you just unlock towbar. Now yuo must kick it into position under bumper. I have same installation as you and works perfect.
  9. Nope... even 1.6 dCi or 1.2 tCe in 2WD has ECO badge...
  10. AIR CON

    So, I did complain when there were no heating when car was new 2 and quarter years ago... at authorised garage my mechanic just re-initalize all sensors and step-motors in ventilation system. After that ventilation works fine for more than 2 years. But tiny buzzing noise still comes out from ventilation and guess what... same noise I noticed in new Megan and Koleos. Fail on whole line... it sounds like electronic interference reflected on speakers...
  11. AIR CON

    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.
  12. 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.
  13. Another Turbo Gone

    I do not know where is the problem... if turbo is blown and car has warranty (means it has all inspections done either by authorised garage or independet garage which meets requirements) then there is no objectivs that warranty was approved. If you do not know; a lot of Meganes, Scenics and Talismans (latest generation) with 1.5 dCi and 1.6 dCi just stops in freeze cold on the road because of watter in the intercooler. Problem was humidity in air, cold air and water condensation in intercooler. It blows a fuse. In my country all new cars has 2-years general warranty with Renault on the road assistance. All affected cars were towed to authorised garage... no problem with Renault atitude or treating customers... but it is look like that problime is in design so there will be a tech note and recall to fix this problem... even tough that all injectors and intercooler is cleaned, fuse changed it can happen again... there will be modification on grill mask (air deflector).
  14. New car??

    And once again; did you made a custom order into factory or just came to resseler and ask like... I want a Kadjar with that engine, this trim and that colour... Do you have any? And salesmna check into his stock and said, yes, I have one just you looking for and it is available right now? We just have tp prepare it for you, tomorrow you can pay it and drive it home? I do newer buy a car from stock just because of that situation...
  15. LED headlights

    Regulations are clear and manufacter economity also. If headlight lamp produce equal or less then 2000 lumens then automatic adjustment and washing is not mandatory. Most HIDs (xenons) produce more illuminity and LEDs less or equal. As far as I know only Scandinavian countries has regulation that headlight wassing is mandatory on all types of headlights. and long time ago cars had wipers for headlights. They are simpy not practical. They were substituted with high pressure nozzles.
  16. Another Turbo Gone

    That much? This is simpy not standable... 1.5 promile? Is this even sttaistic error?
  17. NEW TYRES

    All new Scenics (Scenic&Grand Scenis) has 20˝ wheels in dimension 195/55X20. There is no other dimensions available from factory and honestly I do not beleive that Renault will allow to homologate less then 20˝...
  18. NEW TYRES

    I have 2 19inch tyre sets... winter and summer. I use sets equaly (from Nov. 15th to Mar. 15th winter set and summer set in between that period). Started with winter set on first season from Jan. 4th. Now I have Kadjar from Jan. 4th 2016. Summer set will be just barely good for this season, winter set is still in good shape. I have now just about 50.000 km on clock. Winter set is Conti T830 and summer set is Conti SportContact 5 (original tyres). So very very far away from 40.000 km... I will be happy if summer set will last 30.000 km/ 3 seasons...
  19. Service

    In your handbook (or in My Renault portal) it is written if you did more then 9000 miles in one year you can join A and B service inspection into one (that means that oil and oil filter can be changed every year). I have My Revision service plan for 5 years and according to service plan I have 5 A inspections and 3 B. But since I drove 24k km in first year and 20k in second year authorized garage (dealer) both times did both inspections at same time (A+B, change oil and oil filter)
  20. Media senses

    I beleive it is not such a thing to install it... My next project for warmer days...
  21. I do not understand one thing... you bought a car. A new one or used one. Due to your's strong buyers protection (in UK) you have warranty. So what is the point asking on forum what is the problem? Simply call an assistance number they have to repair your car or tow it to garage and repair it... I have 2 years general warranty and extended warranty for additional 3 years... so in such a situation simpy ring a tall-free number and wait on tow service and replacment car... and I like Renault and I do not regret buying their cars and services they offer.
  22. Auto gear change quadrant lighting.

    It will not since there is no physical present LEDs on switch board...
  23. Oil & Filter Change

    It is obviously... if you do more then 9000 miles/year then every year at A+B inspection
  24. Rlink update

    Yeh, but the latest is 2.2.19.200
  25. Reversing camera

    If you have R-Link2 there is original kit for latter mount.
