The Megane II is one of the best cars on the roads of its time. What about the Megane 2 malfunction? We will look for the answer to the question of what signs mean. In this article, we will look at the Megane 2 malfunction, the warning and the light lights will show.
Renault Megane II attracted great attention after its release in 2002. In particular, some of the equipment it contains has never been seen in any car before. Owning a Megane 2 was a status issue at the time. It attracted a lot of attention, especially in terms of design and features. But more than 13 years have passed since the last one was produced. The more features a car with so many features and equipment has, the greater the risk of a breakdown. In addition, the sensors in the engine and mechanical components of the Megane 2 are constantly deteriorating because they are now outdated. Now let’s look at what the fault and warning lights on the Megane II instrument panel, i.e. the lights, mean matter by matter.
Meanings of Megane II Fault Lights
The fault, warning and warning lights on the Megane 2 instrument panel mean to maintain them.
1- Engine Fault Lamp Light
If the engine light is on in your Renault Megane II, it may light up for many reasons. For example, if you have installed LPG in your vehicle, the fault lamp may light up because the oxygen sensor may give an incorrect reading. This means that the engine control unit (ECU) has detected a malfunction in one of the sensors. The best way to solve this is to connect the Megane 2 to the computer and determine which fault codes it gives.
2- Left Signal at Warning Light
When you give the left signal on the Megane 2, a green arrow flashing to the left appears in the middle of the speedometer. This means alerting the driver that the car is signaling to the left. When you pull down the lever located just to the left of the steering wheel, the left signal flashes. This light allows drivers coming from behind or in front of you to understand that you are turning left.
3- Airbag Warning Light
All Megane 2 model vehicles have an airbag system. It is normal for the airbag light to turn on when the engine is not running. However, when you press the starter button, this warning light should go out when the engine starts. However, if the balloon sign appears in front of the yellow sitting man even though the engine is running, the airbag will be disabled. In this case, what needs to be done is to check if there is a malfunction in your airbag system. Sometimes it burns due to a very simple cable outlet, and sometimes it can burn as a result of very serious brain malfunctions.
4- ESP Fault Warning Lamp
The sliding car sign in the yellow triangle means that the ESP system has been disabled on Megane 2. Also, if the inscription “Check ESP” appears on the trip computer, it will be concluded that you need to have an ESP system. control. The purpose of ESP is to prevent the vehicle from sliding sideways in bends. In addition, the vehicle’s control buttons can be turned on and off at any time. Continuous active use while driving will create advantages for your safety.
5- ABS Warning Lamp
The inscription “ABS in a yellow circle” on the left side of the instrument panel of the Megane 2 means that ABS is disabled if the engine is running. ABS is one of the most important safety equipment in terms of a car’s braking system. Turning on the ABS warning light can cause serious problems in terms of vehicle safety. ABS prevents the car from sliding by preventing the wheels of your car from slipping during sudden braking. Thus, the driver will not lose the steering control of the vehicle.
6- In the Light of Speed Control
The Megane 2 has cruise control, which can be activated with the help of a lever located at the bottom left of the steering wheel. If cruise control is activated, the “green cruise control” sign will light up on the instrument panel. This means that the cruise control is active on the Megane II as long as the signal is lit. It is deactivated as soon as you press the brake or clutch. This is not a fault light. It is only a warning light that indicates that the speedometer has been activated.
7- Service Light (Switch Sign)
If the “yellow repair key mark” sign or the “service inscription” appears at the bottom of the instrument panel, it means that there is a problem with your car. Maybe it can burn out because it’s time for an oil change. Perhaps there are other malfunctions. This warning light means that you need to take your Megane 2 to the service as soon as possible. It is sometimes very expensive to extinguish the service lamp, and sometimes it can be extinguished after a simple filter change. It is a light that is usually lit together with the engine fault light.
8- Red Stop Written Warning Light
This warning light, one of the last fault lights that Megane II owners will want to see, means stopping the engine. Because there is a serious problem with the engine and it should no longer work. Therefore, the inscription ”stop red” will appear. This means stopping the engine. When it burns out, there are probably problems with lubrication. Never use your car in this way. Because you can cause very serious and expensive breakdowns.
9- Right Signal Sign
If there is a green arrow flashing on the right side on the instrument panel of the Megane 2, it means that the right signal of your car is working. When you lift the lever to the left of the steering wheel before turning right, the “right green arrow sign” will flash. This allows other drivers in traffic to understand that you are going to turn right. Signaling at turns is very important in terms of traffic safety.
10- Warning Light Without Seat Belt Attached
As with almost every car, the Megane 2 has a warning light that indicates to the driver that the seat belt is not fastened. If the “red seat belt” lamp is lit on the dashboard, it means that you and the front passenger are not wearing a seat belt. A seat belt is the most important safety equipment that protects you during an accident. In addition, in some vehicles, if the seat belt is not attached, the airbags will not deploy at the time of the accident. This accident can cause serious injuries and even death.
11- Handbrake Pulled Warning Light
As with any car, the Megane 2 has a handbrake as standard safety equipment. If the dashboard lights up with an “exclamation mark in a red circle”, it means that the handbrake of your car has been pulled. The Megane II’s handbrake lever is shaped like an aircraft control lever. It is the braking system that prevents your vehicle from moving while parked. You can’t move in a towed state. But drivers sometimes try to go without a full download. In this case, even if the car is moving, the pads may overheat. For this, the handbrake warning light will warn you.
12- Red Oil Lamp
In order for internal combustion engines to work, there must necessarily be lubrication. In this case, the oil will have to be under a constant pressure in the engine. There is a joint called an oil pressure sensor that measures this pressure. If the engine oil pressure is found to be low, a warning symbol in the form of “red gas lamp (oil dripping from the kettle)” will light up on the instrument panel to inform the driver of this. Never use your vehicle while the gas lamp is on. Because it can cause your engine to die and become a bedspread. When an engine is left without oil, it is one of the worst things that can happen.
13- Red Battery Lamp
It is normal for the battery light to turn on before the engine is started. Because all the electricity needed at that moment is provided from the battery. However, when you press the starter, the battery light should turn off. If the “red battery sign” lights up during the trip or while the engine is running, it means that there is a malfunction in the charging system. If you keep driving while this light is on, the battery will run out and you will stay on the road. You should definitely seek help from an auto electrician to find out what the problem is caused by.
14- The Gasoline Light is On
Like every vehicle, the Megane 2 has a hand and warning lights that show the gasoline level. If the fuel level indicator comes to the red place, your vehicle will be illuminated with the gas pump sign and the “green GAS inscription”. This applies not only to gasoline, but also to the diesel-powered 1.5 dCi Megane II. Using your vehicle with low-level fuel can damage the fuel pump. In diesel engines, it can also cause the air to catch fire. To avoid this, you should definitely not use your vehicle under the quarter tank.
15- Children’s Airbag Light
When you install a child seat in your vehicle, the front seat airbag should not work. To indicate this, this sign will light up on the instrument panel.
16- Temperature Display Warning Lamp
Megane 2 has a needle to see the temperature of the engine water. It should never go as far as the red floor. If the engine overheats, your car will burn the gasket first. Then, as the engine oil heats up, it loses its lubricating properties and your engine remains oil-free. As a result, the engine may die. One eye should be on the heat hand while driving. Even a simple hose crack can cause your car to heat up.
17- Long Beams at the Mark
The blue flat headlight marking on your car means that the high beams are on.
18- Short Beams at the Mark
If the dipped headlights are on in your vehicle, this warning lamp with the green lines pointing down will light up.
19- Front Fog Lights On
If you see a slash in front of the green headlight and a line on it, it means that the front fog lights of your car are on.
20- Rear Fog Lights On
It is a necessary equipment to have vehicles coming from behind in rainy and foggy weather. Indicator If the red headlight marker is lit, the rear fog indicator.
