markthebooler :

Hello

markthebooler :

Do you have the fault code number?

markthebooler :

Internal failure is usually a faulty ecu but number could confirm this.

markthebooler :

It could also need to have an updated program installed.

Customer :

Why would the ecu need changing mark

Customer :

a small statement - ecu changing -- BIG cost - can you explain why the ecu needs changing ?

Customer :
Customer :

please

markthebooler :

This is a known internal problem.

Customer :

if its known - is there any way I can get Renault to pay for it? I am assuming it will cost a mint to change the ecu

markthebooler :

You can try renault but your car is at least 3 yrs out of warranty.

markthebooler :

Check the website link above for remanufactured part prices.

markthebooler :

New ecu is over £400 I believe.

Customer :

which link mark

Customer :

sorry - justy seen it - been on that site just now

Customer :

which model is it?>

markthebooler :

you need to identify the number on your own unit first to check
