because there is a high drain when the head lights on and there is no current being generated because the engine is not running, the system cuts of the head lights and allows full power to the starter and the ECM
I would not consider that as a problem and the rest of what you say could be a coincidence
replacing the ground wire is the same as disconnecting the battery so you may need a scan tool to reset the ECM and immobilizer

The symptoms you report indicate there could be a shortage of fuel volume and/or pressure and it would be wise to begin with a volume and pressure test and pressure regulator test after replacing the fuel filter.

It is also wise to be aware it isn't unusual for there to be foreign objects in the fuel tank or a buildup of water. if there has been bodywork or painting done in the area of the fuel filler it definitely would be wise to look inside the fuel tank.

While on the subject, if it is a plastic fuel tank, when removing the screwed collar for access be aware tanks that have been in service for a time tend to grow as soon as the restraint is removed so it is a good plan to remove the collar and quickly remove the fuel pump/fuel gauge unit and then refit the collar so a more leisurely inspection can be carried out.

If the radiator fan does not start when the engine is running, either the temperature-sensor or the fuse for the fan can be out of use.a) check the fuse by replacing it with another one.
b) check if the cooling-fluid hose is hot or not (which could show a failure of your water-pump.
Avoid driving in town or at slow speeds: when there's no airflow through the radiator, you might damage your engine.

i have no idea offhand but the way i would find out is to remove the cover off the back of the headlight and on the bulb is a connector ,the top horizontal connection is the earth and then the vertical connections either side are the dip and the beam ,most vehicles have the right one as the beam so look at the color ,if you have a twin bulb type then the inner one which is most often the beam so look for the colour on this one ,now be carefull as some vehicles have a multi plug going into the headlight then the wires run from the back of the multiplug socket and could be different colours ,and as iam colour blind red/green i always use a multimeter or a screwdriver probe that lights up when power is present .This may not be the answer you need but it will enable you to have some idea what to look for as some vehicles have a big connection block where the engine loom connects to the firewall so again the wire colours can change their as well.

The problem may be with the power lock of the driver side door. The actuators may be worn out since this is the most used door since the key and the central lock will not work. If the driver's door side is delayed or will not work, usually the rest of the doors would follow. It may just need re-installing because it got loose or went out of alignment due to vibrations.

Not quite sure here as it depends on if its a europeon market vehicle or a american market vehicle,different software used between markets but i have installed a new card reader before and it had to have the renault garage to re-programme it over the internet with the factory ,Nearly got the mechanic to do it at my yard to save the breakdown truck but he said that they had to use the renault phone line or the factory wouldnt recognise the the phone line and do the work it would just shut off as a non official phone line was being used

Hi there, I have a few steps here to help you out:
  • With your hand brake ON, loosen the wheel bolts to hand tight, jack up front wheel, chock back wheels, and put axle stands/blocks in place (just in case) .
  • Remove wheel. Disconnect pad wear wire, it pulls out of the connector.
  • Remove lower caliper bolt (at the back of caliper at the bottom), need a 13mm ring spanner for head of bolt and 17mm to stop it spinning
  • Use a screw driver between the back of the outer pad and the caliper to raise the caliper back away from the back of outer pad. Pivot caliper upwards to rest on top of wheel disc (good idea to tie it up with some wire) .
  • Remove and discard old pads , clean out with wire brush and soft brush , don't breath in to much of the dust its nasty.
  • Fit new pads (remember pad wear sensor on inside pad), make sure that the pads are in contact with the disc , and the top of them sitting flush with the rim of the disc, don't force them into this position they should naturally sit there.
  • Lower caliper down into position, you may need to push back the piston further in order to make room for the new pads , do this with you hands or a small piece of timber. Keep an eye on the brake fluid reservoir , your pushing fluid back in so if its over full it may spill over. Refit lower caliper bolt (Renault say to replace this each time), and tighten. Reconnect pad wear sensor.
  • Pump brake pedal until normal brake pressure returns.
  • Remove axle stand/blocks, refit wheel and bolts, lower jack and tighten up wheel bolts.
Hope this helps...
