Question about 2006 Renault Scenic 1.6

1 Answer

Renault grand scenic heater stopped working, only able to pick slowly at 1. I replaced the fuse and it could work at 1 and 3 only but the resistor unit became very hot.

I used the maplin 85p fuse 10v 240w.Is it normal to be hot before inserting the resistor pack to its position? and why are no. 2&4 speed not working?

U have a faulty heater resistor, very common fault on these. unfortunately its not a simple case of unplugging it and plugging in a replacement though, due to the resistor overheating it damages the connections so when you buy one it will also come with the wire harness which needs to be cut and soldered into your existing harness.

SOURCE: My Renault Megane Scenic S reg heater is not working

Most likely to be a faulty resistor block, which has 3 resistors and a thermal fuse controlling fan speeds 1,2 and 3, maximum speed 4 by-passes the resister block. It may also be poor electrical connections to the resistor block caused by overheating. Renault ask for approximately £350 to carry out repairs, a replacement resistor block will cost £50. If you decide to carry out the repairs yourself, be advised that if you are not competent to carry out such work you, could cause electrical damage or worse an electrical fire.

SOURCE: heater works fine on 1/2/3 but not at all on 4

not sure on later models to be honest ,check for a feed from switch first before you spend money .Normally speed 4 is a direct feed to motor on most cars but this is a dare i say it a RENAULT

How can I locate the blower fan resistor on a Renault scenic 2000 1.6 been looking all over can not get behind dash . Grant


check with an auto electrician familiar with Renault as it may not have resistors but be controlled by a module that has gone faulty.. If not he will be able to tell you where the resistor are.( they are mostly in the heater box above the blower fan as they use air movement from the fan to keep cool)

My heater and blower have suddenly stopped working. Been told thta it will be 10.5 hours labour to take dash off and fix heater unit. would that be right.


It all depends which model we're talking about Renault's manual may in some situations need for the dashboard to be removed but even as a technician there are ways to bypass this problem if we're talking about a Renault Megane 2 or a Renault Scenic 2 and if we're talking about removing the fan heater then it's just a question of removing the glove box but it also may be a heater resistor as the problem.

The heater was blowing in my 54 reg scenic 1.5 dci now it has stopped how do i fix it and how do i get to it and fix it do u know how much it will cost


1st of all make sure the fuse didn't blow ..this will save you time and money if that is the issue and also wiggle the connections at the motor to ensure they are not just rusty / corroded loose or disconnected

for an exact figure on cost for the part i would cal a parts store ..as for installation if this is the issue the fan itself is not too difficult to install other than a few screws that reside under the fan-motor itself that require some time and bending of the hands to get them out and reinstalled .

but i would 1st make sure the fuse is not the issue and check all the above i mentioned you
