Check fuses because the one that controls ciggarette lighter can often blow and this can be a sympton of that,could be loose. Looks like a bad connection from one of the speed sensors which control the abs, do you get abs light stay on. Could be wiring under the bonnet,check all visible wiring too. Failing them it`ll have to be an auto electrician.

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.

SOURCE: 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!!!!

does it make a sound while you are driving if it does the cable may have broken behind the dash, if not check where the cable goes into the other end if its the tran there should be a gear on the end of the cable if its a wheel hub has either a squared of end or a locker of some sort to keep it from the lack of turning, does it jump sometimes if so that the cable is more that likely broken if it does not the gear or the hub conector may be striped or just lose,

I have a reanult megane coupe 1999 & the speedo bounces up & down while im driving normally. if i come of the accelerator while driving it seems to steady itself,also when i speed up aswel. but...


this is one of two things, a bad cluster (speedometer) or the most common would be a bad spped sensor, the sensor is on the backside of the ****** and is held in by one bolt and then pulls out of ******,i would try that first, theres a way to test it but a scan tool would be needed to watch the speed of the ****** and if you see the speed fulcuate on the scan tool then you would know its the sensor and not the cluster

My renault megane 1997 1.6 rt manual cars speedo is erractick . i think it might be the sensor but where is it located and how easy is it to remove?


mcdevito75 her, If you mean the engine idle speed, it could be the air idle sensor, Best Bet have your local auto repair shop run a scan. You yourself would really only be guessing which sensor and the sensor parts themselves are expensive a scan by a shop can pin point which sensor.

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?

2001 ford Expedition odometer reads 100mph


I used to calibrate police speedometers, The odometer by the way is the device that records how much distace you have travelled, The little numbers on the bottom of your speedo. If your speedo reads 100mph regardless of how fast you are travelling, The answer is simple you have some dirt jammed in your speedo. Check that your speedo is mechanical ie it has an armoured square ended cable that comes from the engine to the back of your speedo. Get your hand round the back of the dash and find the back of the speedo. See if you can feel an armoured cable going into the speedo, if so it will usually unscrew and let you pull the square drive inner out. This task is easier if you can first get the speedo out. It will have to come out. Then take the speedo apart without removing the pointer. A cup spins round a magnet and the pivots on the magnet sometimes get glued up. Clean with fine paint brush and parrafin. DO NOT TOUCH THE HAIRSPRING. Get diagram of dragcup speedo as it will show you all the parts. Hope this helps

Renault megan scenic 1.6 auto 1998 .start up drive ,does not change gear ,stop when warm restart drives ok ?


This sounds like you have a pressure fault, these gearboxes suffer from pressure solonoid failure, take the car to your dealer and have it scanned, this will show the fault, it is not an expensive job, but if left it can turn into one.

hi sarah your problem is related to a speedometer sensor switch located on the gearbox its an electrical speedo on the megans, its fairly handy to replace, and if you were to go into any renault garage and purchase the part by giving the year make and model any garage will fit this within 10 min cheeper than renault dealership , goodluck
