Question about 2003 Renault Sportwagon
Hi, Had my Megane 2 weeks now and already have a few problems with it.
1, When i 1st start the car in the morning it makes a strange sound like something is empty, and then will stall unless i give it some gas. Normally fine the 2nd time i start. This only happens if the car hasn't been started for at least 12hrs.
2, When locking the car i press the buttons on the handles so i don't have to get the card out my wallet. This was fine for a week then the drivers door button stopped locking the car, loose wire i thought so i started to use the passenger door behind it. One week later this has also stopped working. Spoke to a Renualt dealer this morning and he said the buttons to go wrong on a occasion and it cost £89 each to replace. The buttons still seem to operate in the same way and don't feel broken.
Can anyone help please? I only have 2 doors left!!!
I had this problem for a few months but, as it was on the passenger side, learned to live with it.
However, a couple of weeks ago I took my car to a Renault dealer in Woking regarding a separate problem.
Although they couldn't find the original fault that I'd gone in with (an auto gearbox problem) when they checked the computer, they did, inadvertently, manage to cure the door handle problem! I suspect that it was simply a bad connection on one of the electrical connection blocks they'd unhooked and then reconnected. Therefore, I'd recommend trying to find out where these are (which could be your next question) and give them a quick contact spray before you strip the door handles down entirely.
The starting problem sounds like the age-old dephaser pulley. I'd recommend checking out the various Megane forums for that though.
