Hiya

This could be any number of problems with the Engine Management System including the following:


  1. Sensors

  2. Actuators

  3. Wiring

  4. Engine Control Module

The first stage of diagnosis would be a full diagnostic code read to establish what code(s) is present.  From there a diagnostic path can be established.

Where do I get this done?

Hiya

Most garages will be able to offer a Diagnostic Code Read however the best place to go would be a Renault Dealer.  The Renault Dealer has all of the latest Technical Literature and Skilled Renault Technicians who will be able to diagnose accurately the issue with your vehicle.
