Question about Air Ride Management 1996-2003 Renault Megane Scenic Plug and Play Air Suspension Kit

1 Answer

My 2003 Scenic 1.9dci battery keeps going flat overnight. I've changed the battery and still the problem persists. It's difficult to start on a morning that's if it starts at all and every time I need to start it with a jump after the battery dies pretty soon after cranking it on a morning. I've checked the glow plugs and they were fine so I had the electrics to the glow plugs checked and when the ignition is switched on there is a +12volt supply to the plugs as to be expected. Then when the ignition was turned off I still had a +6volt supply going to the glow plugs. I presume that this +6volt constant supply to the glow plugs is where I am losing my battery's power overnight. Does anybody have an idea what can be causing this +6volts constant feed to the glow plug wiring? Any help anybody can give me in this matter will be greatly appreciated as it would be a pain to have to disconnect the battery every night in order to stop the battery going flat. Thanks in advance, John

Temporary fix until you find someone who knows.
When you pull into your place to park the car for the night, or whatever, go ahead and unhook the battery. Re-hook up the battery when you are ready to drive it again. That will at least keep you from not driving it at all.

2003 - RX300 I'm tring to change the battery,when I connect the negative terminal, the horn blows and won't stop... I've turn the key to start and nothing happens, the horn keeps blowing.......


I would check to see if this is a relay problem for the horn. Remove the relay for the horn and see if you can swap it with another to confirm it is bad. If with another relay it doesn't stay on you no it was just a relay so go get a new one. The only other thing could be a security issue and when you discharged the power by unhooking battery the vehicle is acting like it has been broken into. But i would say it's a relay problem. Good Luck.

My 2000 renault scenic battery keeps going flat. I've put in a brand new battery and the car battery died again yesterday at my son's school after starting first time at work. What should I be looking at...


Something is draining the battery, or either the alternator isn't putting out to keep the battery charged. A local shop can usually check it for free and let you know if it's the alternator. The other is a shortage somewhere which will be a pain to trace down.
