Broke Down!
#1
Ha! The Scenic conked out today. On the way back from my daughter's house. I was just approaching a traffic island and it gave a little cough and died. Luckily the roads were quiet and I rolled round the island and down a slight gradient into a layby. There was a lot of beeping and flashing lights on the dash and an "Injector Fault" warning. It didn't even go into limp mode, it just died. I was only a mile from home anyway.

My son picked us up and I called the recovery people. I met them at the car. Strange thing is it started as he pulled it onto the flatbed, and when we got home I drove it onto the drive. Very annoying!Angry Will ring up the local indy in the morning and see if he can get me in. Bloody Reno, I knew I shouldn't have bought it!

Im not familiar with Scenic's, any idea what the cause might be. Obviously intermittent(?)

It's always a pain why the car/van gives up on you when you are out and about.

Glad you got it back ok, lets just hope the costs wont be too high to repair.

Not back in work till Tuesday but if I have to resort to taxi, could be very expensive! Probably £15-20 a day.

How far is work for you? About 13 miles?

Don't know why but dodgy glow plugs can cause big electronic trouble on these engines and of course the usual egr valve.
