    My auto megane is actually 2001, twice in the last 6 months the "auto" warning light has come on..this is a schematic of a gearbox with auto written underneath. Could this be fluid problems??

Check your alternator belt tension. It could be slipping. Or,get alternator checked by auto electrician.the speedo is electronic, driven by the alternator. When alternator fixed so your problems will be.

My battery and stop light stay on when I am driving my renault megane


Not a Renault pro being in the US, but most of the time the alternator is not charging the battery when the battery light is on.
I would start with having the alternator circuit tested.

Error b1034 airbag warning light


This light came on in my car when the alternator went bad. If the airbag system is not getting enough voltage it will show a warning indicator light. Check your battery and alternator to make sure they are putting out enough juice.

1997 Buick LeSabre speedometer, eratic operation reads faster than speed actually going, analog electronic unit. How do I repair and access it.


A reliable fix would be to send the cluster out for repair, if in fact the problem lies in the speedo head. There is a bulletin for this car that states that at 20mph the speedo can be + or - 4 mph inaccurate, and its normal operation.
I suggest first having the alternator tested. The VSS on this car produces an AC voltage signal. The alternator also produces AC voltage, which is converted to DC before it is output to the cars electrical system. If any AC voltage is leaking from the alternator, it can interfere with the VSS signal, and cause the speedo to read higher, or even show that the car is moving when sitting still.

ABS Fault? Renault Megane


Hi Liz, I am in exacty the same position as you although I just had the new abs pump fitted and I still have the same problems??? I am going crazy with this, my garage's diagnostic machine won't commuicate with my car and my speedo is not working? My mechanic reckons the abs memory is stuck in a loop and that is why the lights ain't going out, but without a diagnostic I dont know, I guess I will have to take it to a dealership to be ripped off!!!!

1995 Buick Lesabre Speedo inop


It may be a faulty speedometer with a short inside, or a short on speedometer wirings or connector.

Whenever car vibration cause the wiring to short, there you lose speedometer and trans functionality.

You need to access the speedometer connector and wirings to
instrument panel to fix this.

Speedometer wont move


You probably have a broken speedometer cable. Was the needle wagging back and forth and making strange noises periodically before it quit working?
