    Hi all,

    Just got into my car and the orange spanner warning light came on,

    after this came on, i noticed that my car is taking a while to start up when cold,

    can anyone offer any solutions?

    im taking the car to the garage, but should be covered under warrenty (shoudnt it)

    just so i can get some expert advice before they wiggle out of the warrenty.

    Regards

    Scroll through the trip and it should say, check injection or similar.

    What engine is it?

    crisis averted, after flicking through it and the manual it says that it should come on and flash when the service is due.

    already had the service but didnt get the trip reset,

    need to get that done!

    Kinda. Go to the message that says 'service due' and press and hold until it goes back to service in 18000m

    Renault are slacking when it comes to servicing tbh, Picked up my 197 a couple of weeks back and when i got in the car the same thing was flashing so i walked back in and they checked the system and confirmed they had serviced it 2 days before, A mechanic came out to the car and reset it then to my horror was nosing in my handbook one day and noticed they didnt stamp the service book, Back to Renault and got it stamped but why do they not do these things ?? Should be standard procedure ? No wonder why people get pissed off with the stealer

    Glad to help :smile:

    Yeah you should pay & join up - the forum is a wealth of knowledge and could save you lots on going to Renault!

    Membership packs pretty neat too!
