    Trim : SRi Nav

    Engine : 1.8 VVT

    Year : 2006

    Mileage : 130k

    Default Advice please on various Fault codes. Thank you

    Sorry Mods/Admins if this is not the correct section to post in.

    Been having a few issues with my vec of late.

    2006 1.8vvt Sri Nav with 93.5K

    When using the cruise control (which works fine) I now can predict that I get two errors shortly after.

    B3794 - Switch Cruise Control Circuit Malfunction
    (08) - Not present

    U2139 - CAN-Bus No Communication with CIM (Steering Column Module)
    (00) - Not present

    Im also getting this unknown error

    P0597 - <Unknown DTC>
    (61) - Not present

    Over the last few days I have been getting this fault code too.

    P0621 - Generator Lamp "L" Control Circuit Malfunction
    (03) - Not present

    The only known problems on my car at the moment is that the Thermostat needs replacing.

    The car is running fine despite the above, but for how long I wonder.

    I am also getting an error with the power steering. Even though the pump is noisey it works fine at the moment. Not checked the fluid level yet.

    Could have sworn I saved the code on my lappy but can't seem to find it at the moment.

    Any ideas boys and girls would be much appreciated.

    Many thanks

    Chris

    Test the charge from your alternator would be the first thing id check going by that last code.

    Vehicle : Mk1 renault scenic... I know I know but it drives

    Do they clear and come back again. Just with them saying not present usually means that the fault has passed for that ignition cycle.

    Might be worth following how to to clean switch contacts.
