Clio 16V Gauge Problem

Post by cabbott » 30 Jan 2001, 04:46

Hi Guys.
I'm after some help.
The Engine Oil Pressure gauge has failed on my Clio 16V.(3rd one from right)
I get no change at any engine revs. In Fact it doesn't even move anymore.
The rest of the gauges are all fine and a quick check of the fuses looks ok.
Where about on the engine does the gauge enter?
What sort of fix is there for this?
Any help would be appreciated.
I hope you can suggest something otherwise Renault Edinburgh will see me
coming!
Thanks
Colin Abbott

This problem is a nightmare for Clio owners. I had 2 dodgy gauges on the centre instrument pod which took the auto electricians 3 days to track down as there were intermittent faults with both the gauges and the sender at the same time.
If you haven't sorted it yet, I'd say take it to Renault, but place a limit on how long they should spend. If they can't tell you what the problem is in an hour, you are going to need a deep wallet!

Try the sensor yourself and if it doesn't fix it and you have the instrument pod out, try applying a small voltage to the gauge to see if it's actually responding to a signal. It might work, but I don't know the intricacies of the wiring.
