First off, go to AutoZone and get the code scanned. They'll do it free, and will give you the fault code. Post that up and we can take it from there.

Just to ponder - have you checked the mass airflow sensor? If it's giving erroneous reasons it can cause you to fuel the engine incorrectly.

Seats with manual tilt mechanism use a spring an a wire to release the back of the seat so it can be tilted, over time the wire breaks or comes loose.

To fix this, you have to remove the two bolts in front of the seat base and the two on the back. all you need is a ratchet or wrench 13 or 14 mm. Then remove the seat from the vehicle or if you can turn it in a way that you can look underneat, you'll se the wire I am talking about. You can either fix the wire or if broken, replace it with a piece of steel wire same size and thickness. Any wire with this characteistics will work.

Good Luck!! Rate this Post!!!

There is a plastic piece that holds the return spring for the switch on the seat back release. When this piece breaks, the switch can't indicate that the release is back in the lock position. You will have to take part of the seat apart to replace this piece. There could be something else causing this problem, but this is the most common.

this fault code indicates a faulty vehicle speed input, in this model that is almost always caused by a defective ABS control unit, the ABS control unit reads the signal from the Vehicle speed sensor, that signal is then used to run the speedometer and other functions like the time to shift into overdrive on the transmission, this could be the speed sensor on the transmission that is causing this but previous experience tells me and other techs input that it is the ABS unit that is the failed part, the ABS can be tested for this fault by the dealer with special scan tools for the system, they can read live data to and from the ABS unit.

make sure the shifter is all the way in park and the button on the shifter is not stuck in. If that is all good it could be a shifter cable stuck but is most likely a bad ignition cylinder (not switch).

Hello. Get a can of WD40 at any auto parts store. This is a lubricant and a rust dissolving product which will lubricate your moving parts and they will be much less resistant. Spray all of the places where the metal is connected to other metal with in the top. Repeat as necessary until the top is fully operational again.

Grease the stops under the car. They are supposed to have little plastic caps on them but they dry up and fall off.That leaves a rusty stop sitting there and it squeeks when you go to full lock.
Just apply some grease on it once in awhile and you should be good to go. Thanks and I hope this helps....Dan

Lots of European cars don't have a conventional radiator cap and many don't have an unconventional radiator cap. Volvo have been big users of Renault technology so expect to find a means of bleeding air from the radiator if the system has been drained.

The cooling system pressure cap will be found on a translucent plastic bottle/expansion reservoir/coolant reservoir/degassing chamber...

Well you didn't specify where it's showing up in the vehicle if its the trunk make sure the trunks weather strip and seal that goes around the body and seals when the trunk is closed is not broken and also the trunk has seam sealer for the body joints and welds make sure theres not even a pin hole in it ,a leak can also be coming in through the windshield fr/rr from the sealer under the glass getting brittle in the front there is a cowl screen that keeps out leaves and other debris and it has a rubber gasket on it this can dry up and break and this applies to water only if you see antifreeze it's your heater core unless your using straight water forengine cooling which you shouldn't be another leak spot is all the doors insulation rubber and the window strips if they are severely worn water can run down freely into the doors and from sloshing around inside can drain into the passed compartment from a rust door skin on the bottom
