flippin van gave up the ghost last night at a roundabout. no spluttering, just engine died.
recovery chap says immobiliser light is stuck on. mobile mechanic this morning said the same thing. his diagnostic machine gave two faults one being immobiliser.
i have it booked into a renault main dealer to be reprogrammed on thursday.
thing is, the neighbor and i had a nose and found a blown 30 amp fuse.
it's in the engine bay fuse box, under the water expansion tank. see photo. straw is pointing to the offender.
it kept blowing when we replaced and turned on the ignition.
if i can find out from someone here which circuit this 30 amp protects, then i'll know where ish to look for a short??

i could be wrong, but it stops me worrying about more money being chucked at it.

Paul I'd put the pic up on a Renault forum,I've had a few makes of vans in the past and I've found the ford and vauxhall forums to be very good indeed.
The traffic van is made by Renault?!

:withstupid:

French car electrics are a bit of a nightmare when you start getting problems.

Try the French Car Forum, I found them fairly useful when I had a Citroen BX, a bit less so with my Berlingo Van, (there's just more car owners than van owners I guess).
