Renault Automatic Transmission

Q. Dear Sir, I have a 2001 Renault Scenic RXE 1.6 Litre 16 valve with an automatic transmission. The Renault spec are as follows;

Model - JA04
Engine Model - K4M 1600 c.c

The problem is with the automatic transmission light which keeps on blinking off and on. I have changed the transmission fluid and despite that it still comes on. Whenever the light indication automatic transmission problem is on the Renault Scenic rides funny and jerky. Can you help me?


A. What is happening is the Transmission Control Module (TCM) has detected a fault in the transmission electrical system. The TCM has put the automatic into a Fail Safe Mode and illuminated the light to alert the driver that a problem has been detected.

There is no way to pull the codes out without a scan tool so you'll have to take a trip to the dealer to find out what's wrong.

Here'a a picture of the Renault Scenic for those who have never seen one.
