Renault: service ABS light on the dashboard

Customer Question

How do we turn off the service light on the dashboard for a Renault 2002 Megane. I had it serviced by a mechanic who is not a Renault dealer and he wasn't sure. I also have an ABS light on the dashboard should that be on all the time?

Hi Im Scott

The Service light requires resetting by use of a Scan tool. Renault (and many other European manufacturers ) did this in an attempt to "persuade" customers to use Renault dealers to return to dealerships for servicing. The ABS light is illuminated because there is a fault with the ABS system which also will require the use of a diagnostic scan tool to determine the fault. The dealer is not your only option. Most Auto electricians and some Mechanics will possess a scan tool with the ability to take care of this for you. The dealer is also an option but usually charge more as you are probably already aware.

Hello again

After pondering your question I recalled I had seen this procedure before. I looked into my archives and found the below. Although it is for a 2004 model the procedure is the same for your model.

The ABS light will still require the use of a scan tool to recover the codes and locate the fault. Sorry to mislead you. Embarassed
