Question about 2000 Renault 181
Just bought car. Drives fine. But when I've driven it for the first time that day and for say, for about 5 minutes a light comes on the dash showing 'auto'. (This light cannot be identified in the manual) It has been to renault and had a diagnostic test but nothing showed. They said I should pull over & turn off engine then restart. The light does then go out but this isn't solving the problem as I'm back to where I started the next day I use it. I'm worried it might have something to do with the gearbox or could it just be it needs a gearbox oil change?
Any help appreciated! thanks.
Remove the bulb then it cant bother you ,if it drives alright leave well alone or it will cost you a new ECU unit so just ignore it or a bit of black tape over bulb or remove the bulb
check transmission level with drive wheels chocked up ,handbrake on and engine running with reverse selected.and thats as much as you can do as this gearbox in common with all modern cars is all electric,and its a renault which means its encrypted software so no weekend mechanic tune up gizmo from the states will evan contemplate trying to read this properly ,just a load of mumbo jumbo .trust me its a renault , i know what these gizmo sellers promise about their wonder readers and such but on modern cars from 2007 they are useless as now all modern cars are encrypted and your famous renault started it.This is so that all work on a brand of cars can only be undertaken by the dealer and general garages can go and hang their overhauls up for good or turn their garages into car washes or a big mac outlet

SOURCE: Question? will a 52 number
yes it will providing you have the donor next to you for any final bits that dont line up ,But i wouldnt advise you to do it under the EEC directive ,the certificate of homoglonation wouldnt be correct so therefore the vehicle cannot be tested for the MOT .Unless the appropiate`paperwork is issued by a technical engineer then the work carried out by a authorised garage with a VAT number ,then said vehicle inspected by the technical engineer to ensure the fitting is correct and to verify the engine number .Now under the europeon directives iam a qualified motor vehicle technician and a member of the appropiate body so iam a position to offer you the technical engineers report and draw up a project for this job for the garage and the minimum fee for this sort of work is 1000 euros.Now please remember that unless i sign the paperwork for this engine swop you cannot do the the job and legally use the said vehicle on the road or get the cars documents changed and without this you cannot MOT the vehicle or get insurance .I didnt do 6 yrs at college for nothing which i did when i lived in the UK the certificates were only good to hang in the privvy but here in spain they are worht a lot more and lets hope that the laws are changed soon in the Uk before i die anyway so i can open a office and charge what i like for a rubber stamp on a bit of paper just like spain .
