It's a faulty gearbox interlock switch. Very very common on Kangoos and related Renault models like the Clio.

Contact a Renault dealer; in some territories they were replacing them for free. Otherwise you'll have to replace the switch with a new one and it's really difficult to get at without dropping the engine and gearbox. If it was easy, it wouldn't be a proper Renault!

Fiat ducato comrortmatic gearbox warning light comes on


the light is telling you that there is a problem in the transmission that if you continue to ignore it and not have the problem fixed will cost you big dollars . Run fault codes --- change oil and clean filter --- have the bands and clutch packs adjusted for starters as it may reveal a fault that can be fixed early for little cost.

Esp warning light problem


If the tires are different sizes, that can cause the light to come on. Other causes are discussed on pages 28 and 173 of the manual:

I have a 12/2000 grandure, it sticks in 3rd gear of the auto trans, but only when it has warmed up, u can reset it by stopping turning the ignition off and re starting, but only until it hits third gear...


Time for a gearbox oil change. As the oil gets older it breaks down and that means it heats up too quickly, meaning it will not allow the auto to change gears properly. As you have switched the engine off and restarted it tricks the ECU into thinking that the gearbox oil is cold until it reaches too high levels.

Change the oil soon as an auto box rebuild isn't cheap.

Hope this helps.

Coil warning light comes on, kangoo looses power, almost stops, then revs like mad, release clutch to resume driving looses power. can be ok for five minuets then it all starts again.


not sure to be honest ,its a renault remember so its impossible to read OBDII codes ,i would need to have a play to determine the exact cause of the problem ,i would suspect the coil/module first off but it depends on year and what system it is ,as what happens is the module starts playing up causing it to lose power then as its having neat petrol down it this causes the O2 sensor to read high and this in turn throws the light on ,If this is one of the older models with built in ignition module in the base of the coil then change this ,but if its a later model with the coil on each spark plug then i would advise you to take it to renault as it could then be the pedal sensor ,As we are well aware the newer renaults from 2005 use encrypted software that only the dealer can plug into via renault in france ,with return call back to computer IP and then operators fingerprint to open computer.Unlike our american cousins with their emmisions test were the OBDII has to be read to pass the test

Did they also change oil to a heavier weight? Turbos are oil cooled and require heavier oil to extrude heat. Check with folks who did turn install and if they didn't I think an oil change is needed.

Speedometer goes to zero every now and then


Does this happen intermittently, im guessing so with the wording "Now And Then" also when your coming to a junction/roundabout and the Speedo has gone to Zero, do you feel a decrease in power around 10% and dipping the clutch and braking causes the Red Warning light to flash top right hand side in the dash and the car wants to stall and or Cuts out?

I have this same Problem and Believe it could be the Speed sensor on the gearbox ( Around £30 on ebay that i have found) 50+ from ford Dealer.

My Quick fix to get the speedo back from zero this is what i have found works to make it come back It does not Totally fix the problem, it just makes it come back if the speedo has dropped again whilst Moving.

This normally stops it happening again until the next time the car is turned off or stood for a while I have noticed it happens More often when the fuel gauge is Below 1/4 and its been raining for some reason? so im thinking it might have a loose connector on the sensor and its getting wet? but have to get under to have a check.

try this to see if it works, it does for me and i have a V Reg Focus LX 1.6

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

What to do when you notice the Speedo has gone Off .

1) turn the lights on and off then,

2) change DOWN a gear to 3rd, then UP to 4th then to 3rd again

3) and tap the Gear stick on the palm part with the palm of your hand quite hard and wiggle the Gear Stick left and right with dipped clutch in Neutral .

4) turn the main dipped headlights on and off again ( i found also if i have the Heater running it makes this happen so turn it on and off a few times)

5) if it is safe to do so, pull over and turn the car OFF leaving the key in the ignition and then back ON Within 10 Seconds, repeat 1) , 2) 5) again and repeat untill the Speedo Returns (normally within 2-3 mins of this procedure)

if anyone else knows how to fix it please Post any info :)

2004 jeep grand cherokee engine management light on gear box won;t change up or down . had this problem a few times; just used to stop the car turn engine off @ back on car would drive ok, after a mile...


I had a similar issue on a grand cherokee '98 4.0L, and it was because the gearbox was overheating due to old oil and the fact that is was low on oil. Change gearbox oil and the filter inside the gearbox checked the two band tension and adjusted them and all was ok. the oil should be red or a dark pink. It would point more to this being the poblem if when it does change gear, the gear changes seam slow or slugish or change happens at higher engine revs. You may be able to get a fault code from ecu, by turning ign. to acc then on then off then on then off then on then off then off hen on again (code is displayed instead of odomitor reading as PXXXX or POXXXX). This could point you i one or more directions if oil seem to be correct.

I have a 2000 passat. We changed the brakes and now the ABS warning light, buzzer and "service manual" keeps coming on the dash. Any ideas what it might be?? Thanks


To stop the service interval warning and sound coming on please follow the following steps.
1. insert key into ignition. 2. using right hand press and hold the odometer reset stalk. 3 using your left hand turn on the ignition ( dont start the Car) 4 now use your left hand to press the clock adjust stalk and turnit to the left. ( just advance the time by 1 minute) 5 release both stalks and then turn ignition off , then on again and your service warnig light and sound will now not appear for the next 5000 miles. ( repeat the above when it comes on again) This will also save you £30.00 for the garage to do it.
