  1. Mileage before service With the ignition switched on, the engine not running and the display set to “Service Intervals”, press button OK for approximately 5 seconds to display the mileage before service (distance or time to the next service). When the range approaches its limit, there are several possible scenarios: – distance/time remaining less than 900 miles (1,500 km) or one month: the message “Service due in” is displayed along with the nearest limit (distance or time); – range equal to 0 km/miles or service date reached: the message “Service required” is displayed accompanied by warning light ©. The vehicle requires a service as soon as possible. Resetting: to reset the distance before service, press and hold button 2 for approximately 10 seconds until the display shows the mileage permanently.
  2. Kadjar Burgular alarm

    Some of the earlier cars did have alarm problems , so maybe you should have it checked. My alarm did go off a couple of times for no apparent reason . Once on a windy day another , more embarrassingly , when when I part exed it for my current car . Parked up outside the dealer , walked away and the alarm went off . It was never bad enough to disable the alarm , but I believe it's possible
  3. Reasons not to buy a Kadjar

    @Jetflyer Seems to be a fair opinion . Can't quite see the problem with the Auto . I had a manual Kadjar , but I'm driving a car with the same ,or similar , DCT arrangement with no problem at all . Could it be the ECU not handling it as well in the Kadjar ? Not an expert on auto mechanics , just throwing it out there . As far as the trim goes , I don't want to be one of the " I'm Alright Jack " brigade ,but mine was no problem apart from a minor glove box rattle which was easily sorted .My present car had the intermittent glove box rattle too which was easily sorted . I didn't buy another one , which had nothing to do with the build quality or performance of the car. It does seem that some buyers were unlucky in that respect
  4. Reasons not to buy a Kadjar

    I too had no mechanical problems with my Kadjar . It would seem that ryanfitz1981 had a high spec version and I can totally understand that he would be aggrieved after spending around £26000 on a bad build
  5. Kadjar Facelift 2019

    See what you're saying could end up with the 3 brass monkeys treatment or maybe add a 4th monkey ...see nothing , say nothing , hear nothing and wouldn't do anything about it anyway ....some may say it's already here but I wouldn't dream of it

    Mitsubishi ? I would have thought the Mazda Sky Activ X would have been a better option
  7. Another weird RLink thing

    Is it DAB radio . Maybe the receptions crap outside your house and you'll have to move 300 yards
  8. Kadjar Facelift 2019

    I'd read that too . By that time my car will be gone ,most likely me too and maybe all of us . Also The battery technology will have moved on a lot by then . The plug in version of my car presently has a 29 mile EV range , 21 mile increase in 22 years shouldn't be a problem
  9. Kadjar Facelift 2019

    Same here . The Scenic Hybrid Assist did cross my mind even though I'd lost faith in Renault , I really loved my Scenics . My present car is capable of driving in EV only mode for several miles dependant on gradient and engine temperature . I lost about 30 litres of boot space to the Kadjar , which was no problem for my usage . Also , I wasn't totally convinced about the higher driving position on the Kadjar . I find it just as good on a fastback styling as with the Kadjar in fact better for parking , especially with rear camera throughout the range .
  10. Kadjar Facelift 2019

    Not surprised , didn't do enough to convince me ( and many others I suspect )
  11. Voice Guidance

    Try resetting the R Link ...hold the power button in for about 10 seconds until the R Link reboots and then set it all back up again
  12. Kadjar Facelift 2019

    All I can comment on that Ted is that ,in my case , the engine delivers 106 bhp and the electric motor brings it up to 149 bhp when required , So I suppose the answer is yes , as long as as Renault do it properly ( what am I saying )

    So's global domination by oligarchs ( oh no !!! that's already here )
  14. Word of warning about stalling

    The last car I had for work { Astra manual ) had a tendency to stall at low speed on roundabouts . Just dipping the clutch started it again no . Never had that problem with the Kadjar .
  15. Word of warning about stalling

    Should have had an automatic
  16. There's no SatNav or R Link on the base model Expression +
  17. RLink

    You've got a couple of years on me but I'm still a grumpy old git . No problems for me , other than having the need for psychic abilities to guess the R Link serial number . People of our age group will tend to have more difficulty in getting to grips with the new technology because we weren't " brought up " with it . Then there are others that never RTFM of all ages . Reminds of a customer I once visited that couldn't get to grips with his TV .I explained it's all in the manual to which he replied " I can't be a!"£d to read that " to which I replied " Fair enough sir , next time it'll cost you £70 for me to read it to you ".....never saw him again
  18. April 2018 map update

    The Whistling ? R Link Site ? or both ? . You'll have no notification from Renault in my experience . You could get in touch with R Link Support by email giving them your map versions and ask them if your maps are up to date . Could also ask when an update is expected . The only answer I ever got was " soon " . 9 months later....nada
  19. April 2018 map update

    Go to the R Link site ...whistling " When You Wish Upon A Star "
  20. Because TomTom had 4 guaranteed updates a year for £27 a year ( now free for life I think ) paid to TomTom's bank account . Whereas you now pay Renault £79 for maybe 2 updates a year ? Points on Greedometer = 10 , Points on CustomerSeviceometer = 0
  21. Is it diesel or petrol ? If diesel it could be a clogged DPF or it could be a false warning . I had a 1.5Dci Scenic which gave me that message . Diagnostics indicated a faulty injector or DPF . I had the injector changed on warranty ( the last day of warranty...phew ) , a month later it came up again . Turned out to be a duff battery , even though it gave no problems starting or driving . Maybe worth having it tested ?
  22. 1.2 TCE EDC

    Fair enough for a diesel , but the OP is driving a 1.2 petrol . Efficient as it is , that's a lot of weight to pull around for that size engine
  23. 1.2 TCE EDC

    Should improve on that journey . The Kadjar is not really a " knock about town " kind of car .
  24. Acceleration delay in auto
