Renault Megane dynamic 2005

Hello, The hazard lights are independent to the immobiliser - therefore it could be related to the power distribution?

Car will not start

Hello, It’s possible the battery voltage affected this - but it could be immobiliser related too. Please try a spare key if possible.

Alarm sounding

I have a 17 plate captur and the last few days it’s sounding an alarm on the dash once I’ve turned the engine off and trying to get out the car. It stops when I shut the door. Any ideas how I disable that?

Clio IV 2017 upgrades!

Hello, The modifications you’ve described are quite wide ranging - due to the age of the vehicle it’s best to discuss these with the retailer to avoid issues with your warranty.

Pinking sounds coming from the engine on throttle pick up?

2010 rs twingo

Hello Andrew, It could be fuel quality related? However there is also a knock sensor on the engine to monitor engine knock. If it persists, please have a retailer examine the fuel system and any fault codes.

clio 220 trophy gearbox software update

Hi, for the past few months I have noticed that my 17 plate 220 is struggling to determine between 1 and 2nd gear at low speeds. Can you confirm if any gearbox software was released since 2017 to the dealers to fix this issue which seems to be relaitvely common? If so I will book the car in to have this applied. Thanks

clio 220 trophy gearbox software update

Hello Ben, I don’t have access to the various car databases to determine the last release date. In this instance it’s best to contact a retailer and they can plug in to determine whether there are any revisions available.
