    It seems to be a common problem with the Magane Scenic auto, that when driving the first mile or so, the warning light comes on, indicating a gearbox problem, and the car will not go beyond 3rd gear, and also pulls away very slow. On turning off the engine, and restarting, all is back to normal for another few minutes, then the problem repeats. It would seem on starting the car again, the problem goes away for the rest of the journey, but will return when the car is used later in the day. Please tell me there is a simple cheap answer, rather than throwing the car away!!

This sounds like you have a pressure fault, these gearboxes suffer from pressure solonoid failure, take the car to your dealer and have it scanned, this will show the fault, it is not an expensive job, but if left it can turn into one.

My 1998 renault scenic megane bunny hops when cold in 1st and 2nd gear. once warmed up, it stops... any ideas?


Hmmmm......

Looks like ur tranny is overheating!

When does u change ur transmission fluid filter?

Better go to ur nearest garage to check that overheating, either ur lacking fluid or the filter is already blocked!


Hope that helps out!

1998 renault megane ignition problems. My wifes Renault megane scenic 1998 has has nothing but problems since we bought it. The most recent being as follows. I was driving the car and stalled it. from then...


it sounds like one of three things are happening
1.your battery has adead cell in it and does not have enough cracking amps

2. your alternater isn't charging your battery enough

3. your starter is worn out causing it to need more amps to turn over

You can go to your local auto parts store and have them test your battery and charging system usually for free. if the battery and charging system checks out then pull the starter off and have it tested.
