    Question Renault Megane Scenic - Clock Display Dim

    Hi. Just picked up a Renault Megane Scenic W Reg (2000) 1.6 16v Automatic and wondered if there was a fix for the clock/temp/radio display as it's so dim I can hardly see it! If so, full instructions would be appreciated. Thanks

    It will most likely be a faulty ignition coil, a diagnostic check or code scan will reveal the faulty coil

    Just a thought - car has been sat on a forecourt for a month or so - could problem be 'muck' from bottom of petrol tank making it's way through engine? I filled tank when I picked car up and have used roughly a quarter already. Not sure if a good 'blast' would cure it? Thanks

    A faulty ignition coil will be the cause of the misfire

    Hi. Thanks for the advice. Today, there is hardly any acceleration, sounds like chitty chitty bang bang and the whole car vibrates!!. Why would this only show itself after only 2 days????

    I must advise you that prolonged driving with an engine misfire can cause damage to the cataylitic converter, get this in for diagnostics asap

    Thanks for that MerseyPatrol. I will ring my trusty mechanic first thing in the morning. Is this something that just happens? as it was fine on Friday!
