Question about Cars & Trucks
I have fitted a new battery and now the instrument panel is not working. I've checked all the fuses. Headlights etc are working and other electrics just not the instrument panel. Any ideas please?

SOURCE: Instrument panel went dead
Checked Every fuse in the fuse box (no small task).This includes #4 - Power point Instrument Panel, #14 - Day time running lamps (auto lamps doesn't work nor does auto lock), #27 - ignition switch run feed, #35 - Instrument Cluster, #41 - Instrument Cluster, #42 - Delayed Accessory, #45 - Ignition switch run/start feed, #102 - Door locks body security module, #103 - Ignition switch, #110 - Ignition switch, & #116 - Ignition switch. But I also check all other ones as well, they all register OK. AC panel & radio work. Turn signals work. Mileage does not work, trip computer does. So, basically, everything works except auto head-lights, auto locks, and the dash cluster (no MPH, RPM, mileage display, Fuel, Temp, Tran Temp, and Oil Pressure).

Welcome to the club! Have a look at the "blank dashboard" posts. Hundreds of cars out there with same fault, Renault will charge £500-£700, some firms do "mail order" repairs for £200 - and please email Watchdog, Renault need to start sorting this out! Lots of us are doing the same. Try ECUtesting.com or Cluster Repairs UK and have a look at renaultcustomer.com/ or threads on howtomendit.com.

check for any circuit brakers near the fuse box, if theres any of them reset them by introducing a paperclip in the small hole and press, you will hear a click.
