I have heard of this quite a bit and as far as i know its caused by damp and can be fairly easily sorted with a hairdrier and some time try and heat the back of it if possible!!

Hi i have renault clio mk 2 98 diesel 1.9 the thing is ive been to three garages now spent over a 100 quid and the problem still there,its the very first start in the morning it takes about 3,4 attemps to...

Are you letting the glow plugs get hot enough? Does it have glow plugs? How about the battery? Does it die down while all this is happening? Might want to think about using starting fluid on cold days. My tractor would fire on cold days and the battery would be half dead, but I always waited for the plugs to get hot enough.

Dashboard warning light meaning, renault laguna

If its on the left of your abs light, then you most likely need to add some oil. If its on the right of your ABS light, that means you need to check your engine. And based on what you said (as speed goes up, it lights up) could mean that you might have a slight misfire. And a misfire, could be many things, from FUEL to SPARK to AIR. Could be fuel pump, fuel filter, gas cap wasnt tight, spark plugs, spark wires, could be an injector. So, as you see a misfire could interpret into many things.

Now, if you're talking about the warning sign that looks like this (( ! )) then for some reason your E-brake is engaging, try prying on it, and releasing it *while car is at a stop* and/or your e-brake could be lose or too tight, for whatever reason that happened.

Hope I helped.

Good luck lad.

My renualt laguna 2003 2.2dci has a cold start problem, if i spray easy start into the air filter, it starts, what could be causing the problem? regards gary

i would suggest that the heater plugs in the engine are either faulty or not working, the can be checked if you know what you are doing, they basically act as a heater inside the engine when it is cold, if they are not working, a diesel engine relies on heat i ignite the fuel airmixture unlike a petrol engine that has a spark plug that ignits the fuel. if there is no heat the fuel air mixture will not ignite. Check that power is going to the heater plugs,it will be 12 volts, if there is remove the heater plugs(easier said than done) then check the heater plugs,(the engine can not be used when the heater plugs are removed). I would sugguest getting some one who knows how to check them if you are not sure, as you have to basically put 12v to them and they glow red hot at the tip.if they dont glow when wired up they are faulty, and change them all, about £40 a set if you shop around.
