    No it does not.... the Privilege is sort of top-of-the-range and has got lots of kit, e.g. CD-changer, keyless-wireless ignition, panoramic roof etc, but not rain sensors. I always knew that having all these electrics on a French car can't be a good thing...

    My wife had a scenic, and the instrument panel failed.

    Although the car was 7 years old, we got a subsidised repair from a Renault main agent, as it is a very common fault.

    I've had nothing but grief with the 'lectrics on my Alfa- including crazy instruments... All the electronics are made by.... BOSCH! :)

    With much thanks to David Powell when the DIL's Scenic went duff on Christmas Day!!! It was quickly sorted by Renault Main Agent, Wigan. It had a known issue (not to us) with the radio draining the battery. New radio unit fitted FOC. David sent me the information by email and No1 son had it for backup in the main dealers.

    Once the Main Agent knew that our son, also called David, had the printed information about the fault - butter would not melt.

    Good Luck.

    Thanks.

    I've got the Haynes manual, but I probably won't attempt to get the instrument panel out before talking to Renault on Tuesday.
