  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. Members Debate the Move

    Dear moderator @shedder101 and member @duracel3634 I think that time is convinient to build a new forum with domain kadjarforum.org as we not an commercial institution and nor UK only... Start building a new forum on new hosting platform tomorrow and have time to move all useful content. Invite here all members to register again and also all new interesting folks. Sooner we will start sooner we will have new, useful, working forum. my opinion....
  4. Members Debate the Move

    Yes. Where do you have DNS for your hosting?
  5. Split leather on drivers seat

    Same thing happened in my previous Scenic... Sits were made from leather while side panels from vinil... I have to repair them, fortunatly my neighbor do this and paid only 60EUR for material and labour
  6. Power increase 1.6 4x4

    With torque increase problems with gearbox might occurs... First find out what is the max torque gearbox and 4x4 can stand...
  7. Upgrade R-Link 2

    Officially only by changing device and 2G module.
  8. RLink

    After reformating USB key you have to plug it again into opertional-turn on device (rlink) and after 2-3 minutes Rlink will leave imprint on key... after that plug it into computer and proceed with map download...
  9. Only time I've got electronic fault was on my GrandScenic when brakelight switch went off on brake pedal...
  10. It is jus an electronic device... bugy Android, on top...
  11. 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
  12. 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.
  13. You shouldn’t pull hard... did you fitted yourself or by authorised garage? When is in unlock position also beeping...
  14. 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.
  15. Nope... even 1.6 dCi or 1.2 tCe in 2WD has ECO badge...
  16. Smartphone mirroring in pre-May vehicles

    Yes. So when phone operate and doesent't discharge then second condition is meet. When phone is charging and operate at same time then first condition is meet. Meaning that there is enough power on USB port. I know what this two things means when used just a 500mA lighter-to USB charger and use it on iPhone for navigation. Phone despite of connected to power source rapidly discharged.
  17. Smartphone mirroring in pre-May vehicles

    To be honest, a lot of laptop manufacturers also has same problem. Not to mention phone manufactures... say, which android phone works on full USB3 speed when connected to PC? We know that iPhone does not... I beleive that magic word is 'not need' and 'compatibility'. To charge newer phone or tablet you need at least 1A on USB output. With 500mA good luck... and for charging you do not need USB3. Powered USB2 is enough.
  18. joel

    Again... Renault cars which are very close related to their Japanese cousins has also Japanese logic... only automated driver window, no walk-away lock (this was added because of European customers demand), no auto-close or auto open all windows remote/on-lock, no switch illumination... with one word crap or 100 years behind current state. Do you think that Koleos, car for 40k EUR has all this? Well, not.
  19. R-link 2 2.2.19.200

    My iPhone 6S connects automaticaly as use to before. But still disconect/connect during opearation as did it before upgrade to 2.2.19
  20. 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...
  21. 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.
  22. Illuminated Buttons/Dash

    Yes they are.
  23. 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.
  24. Smartphone mirroring in pre-May vehicles

    Date of manufacture is hidden in VIN and in production number. If the car is from stock you can find a lot of usable informations from entering VIN.
  25. 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).
