As I left work tonight my 200t started to make a very loud noise abit like a sticking relay/contact . It was so loud I couldn't hear the engine. I stopped the car and switched off the engine. The noise continued for 30 mins , by the time Renault assist came it had stopped and the couldn't find anything wrong. Would love the hear if anyone else has had this and if so what is it. Hope to get the car into the dealers Asap but for now the problem seems to be gone.
The car only has 1300 miles so I hope this isn't the start of some major problem

Was this happening when stationary out of interest (IE. car in Park or Neutral)??? or only when moving and if so, was it continuous? or only on gear changes?

Be interested to hear if it's thrown any OBD error codes when (I assume) the dealers put it on their diagnostic machine.

I had moved about 20 yards , stopped at a junction was still in drive when it started, turn into a car park put it into park and switched off and the noise continued for 30 mins . Noise seemed to be coming from behind the dash and not the engine bay . Sound was so loud people were starting to look. Rac guy was at a total loss and followed me home but it didn't happen again. Hope the dealer can give me some info

Mine did the exact same thing on the way to work at 7am, I've had mine for 3 weeks its almost done 700 miles now. When it happened it had done about 100 miles if that. But it was a very loud humming noise and it happened if I remember when I was trying to sort out the radio on the R-link. I stopped the car immediately turned off the engine and it was still buzzing. I turned the engine back on and then after 15 seconds it stopped.

It hasn't done it again. All I can put my finger on was it was just a cold day for the CPU. I read abit about how much these 200T's are controlled by the CPU and can be a little temperamental, I think each car takes its own time to bed in, mines been fine now and I'm sure yours is nothing to worry about either.

Welcome to the 200t fault club
You will get many more but usually taking the keys out and then back in resets it and the car behaves itself until next time
I used to post up faults all the time but I just live with it now

If it does happen next time, it might not be a bad idea to record a video on the mobile phone. At least you'll have a recording of the noise, to show to the dealer.

I would also move the phone around in the cabin while recording, so that you capture whereabouts is the noise coming from/where is it the loudest...

My car did this yesterday, scared the hell out of me, it was so loud people came out the gym to see what was going on. I've rung my local Renault but they weren't helpful and said that if there are no fault lights showing they wouldn't be able to do anything. My care is a 65 plate with about 24000 miles on the clock so it is bedded in! Bit worried to drive it in case it happens again.

Good to have it recorded on the dash cam if you have one, would be a good investment to have a dash cam too. Hope it doesn't comeback though.

If it sounded like a pneumatic drill it would most likely be from the R-Link which is probably running an old software version.
You can go to https://easyconnect.rena...uk/help/r-link-evolution and follow the instructions to update to the latest version which should resolve this & some other issues.

I have a Grand Scenic 15 plate with 12.000 miles on the clock. This week while pulling into a car park this loud compressor like noise started reverberating around the car, it was frightening especially for the two youngsters occupying the back seats. Called the AA and let them hear the noise,they had no record of this problem, before they arrived the noise had stopped but that was well over thirty minutes after it started. Booked
it in with Renault and after having it for a day and a half told they couldn't find a problem and have no record of this fault. As this is the second time the vehicle has been back for work under the warranty,the first being a bad case of water in the both footwells I think it will be adiós Grand Scenic.

My car is playing silly buggers again. This VERY loud noise happened again last night, a full 15 minutes with my daughter scared while we sta in heavy traffic ona very narrow road with nowhere to pull over. Renault steadfastly refuse to look into it despite me now having 5 recordings. It had a software update in August, was in for warranty work October. it's just ridiculous.

The above link should allow you to hear the recording.

The problem is still software related, If you can check the version number of the R-link.
The latest application version is 11.344.--------------8056/59 & if this up to date, the radio or Bose (if fitted) may also need updating.

RED21 the software was updated less than a month ago for the 2nd time. The noise still persists. Renault claim there is no fault, that this is normal and refuse point blank to do anything.

I don't believe the noise is normal, RED21 would only be correct if the R-Link is turned on. Let us know if that is the case.

What you have to remember is that R-Link is not just the screen/navigation but a grouping of units, and as stated the radio &/or Bose sections may also need updating which is a separate process on earlier media systems.
This Pneumatic drill noise can carry on for up to 20-30 minutes after the vehicle is shut down and locked as the media system remains "active" as such and hence the continuation of the noise.
Also I have ask, do you have or leave any music play back device connected to the system either via BT or USB during vehicle shut down as there is a possible compatibility issue or some form of data corruption during shut down which a software up date may resolve.

Yes it is the Bose version and the electronics engineer at work has said the burning smell that keeps happening when this occurs is my speakers essentially frying. I have been leaving the whole soundsystem off, so I have no satnav, phone etc connected which makes for a very boring drive but it is still happening regardless, I'm assuming it's still running in the background even if I've not turned it on. I've disconnected the bluetooth on my phone so it doesn't automatically try to link with that and I accidently hoovered my USB so that's no longer plugged in either. Sad

My biggest issue is that Renault simply refuse to believe there is a fault despite video's to the contrary. The wolverhampton branch simply refused to even listen to the video's and then stated they couldn't find the fault as it didn't 'flag up' on their system. They replaced a heater relay as they said that was the only issue they could see as being linked to it and basically wouldn't listen to a word we said.

Hi. I too have same issue. We purchased a 2015 Grand Scenic Bose in 2018. Problem first occurred in February 2019. My wife was driving, pulled up at end of road after just starting car and noise kicked in. She thought it was engine fault at first and sadly was unable to video problem. Car went into local dealer but they could find no fault (I'm not sure Renault Technicians at the dealerships are specialised enough to deal with Rlink system faults but I'm happy to be corrected). Happened again last night (18.6.2019). I was driving and exactly same scenario. Started car, drove 50 yards down road to junction and noise started. The Rlink system was in USB mode when engine switched on so I'm prepared to accept it may be a USB pen drive issue (Sandisk 32gb Cruzer with folders of MP3 music only). However what is not acceptable is the highly disconcerting noise level going on for around 20 mins making the vehicle dangerous to drive and possibly damaging the Bose speakers. I've contacted Renault customer support, to be fair they have been very helpful and have promised to contact the local dealer and the Rlink team. GOOD NEWS was I videoed the problem and this can be seen on YouTube at
. I will keep you posted to see what happens. The vehicle is still in warranty and although about to expire end of July 2019 I have insisted this matter will be dealt with under original warranty until resolved....we wait and see.

UPDATE 15TH JULY. It's taken over 3 weeks but the car was booked in on 11th July to Renault Wirral. Renault UK arranged a courtesy car through Enterprise. The car has today been returned following what Renault describe as an ACTIVE SOLUTION numbered 20642. This involved re-programming the Rlink. I will monitor the situation to ensure the solution has worked.
