Hi,
The problem could be as told by Mohammed, but as you wrote that it was very cold today. The error could have been caused by the catalytic converter sensor. As it might have got more fuel particles. After running the engine for a while has the indictor swithced off or not.


Thanks

    It sounds like one of the ignition coils has failed causing the loss of power and the light to come on.
    When this happens there is an increase in exhaust emissions due to the management system trying to compensate for the loss of power.
    If you get a diagnostic test done at a renault dealer it will tell you if that is definately the problem and which cylinder the misfire is on.

    The problem component could be the EGR valve


    Thanks

Hello, I've just driven 100 miles with three children under 5 in my 2003 Renault Scenic Fidgi. About 2 miles from my destination (parents house), an orange warning light started to flash on the dash (looks...


an orange light with a tap symbol would usually be a low water warning for the cooling system.
check the water level in the cooling system and refill checking for leaks.
if a car with low water becomes sluggish it is not normally a good sign as it can mean that the engine is overheating and becoming too tight.
this needs to be checked properly before you try driving any distance, especially with kids.
book it in for a pressure test on the cooling system asap.

Renault Scenic 05 plate petrol 1.6 The 'check emissions' warning light has come on. What is the likely cause? The car has been starting poorly of late. Lively battery but slow to fire. Hope someone...


Try to disconnect battery first and then hook back up after a minute. This should reset computer. If it runs good after that and then bogs down again you can get the code for check engine from any parts store and then investigate more throughly. If it runs good after you do the battery don't fix it.
