Renault 5 GT Turbo / toad alarm disarming?
« on: 11:17, Sun 10 October 2010 »
Hiya guys

Having problems with imobiliser,I had to disconect battery and the car has not had fuel pump prime or starter motor since.

I have tried entering code manualy which works but then turn key and no prime or start.

Have checked starter motor wires alll fine,checked all fuses and tried bridging the fuel pump relay which wouldn't work.

Running out of ideas please help ;-(

Will have to get a jack and axle stands and get underneethe the car and check at starter motor.

For the starer to jam on and keep running like that is it safe to say I need to invest in a new starter or solinoid,realy not looking forward to attempting that.

Think I might have to be renewing my RTOC membership lol.

Ive got the flash back on the alarm,I held the bonnet cose button down whilst reconecting the battery.

It never used to make any noises now the alarm beeps,still no fuel pump prime or starter.

A phone call to previouse owner may help matters.

I think something has happend to my alarm its a toad alarm,when I reconnect battery the indicators flash once but then the red or green light isnt on in the dash.

Gota fealing im going to end up having to run a wire to the fuel pump on a switch and remove the alarm system why me had the car not evan a week ;_(

Took the car to gym,had a fiddle round before I left to try and find oil sender wires (these have been cut)

Driving home and go round a fast tight corner notice oil warning light coming on then going off weird.

Park up and sounds like a fan is running but very noisey,I know this not to be the case as they are all on switches.

After a few minutes of scratching my head notice smoke coming from back of engine,so disconect my earth on battery and the noise and smoke stops,ive burnt my finger on earth terminal it was that hot.

Could this be a jammed on starter motor,what would cause this?

Advise needed hopfully smoke wasn't melting wire loom ;_(

Renault 5 GT Turbo / oil warning light

Hello all

What would make the oil warning light come on,It isn't getting an oil pressure reading at all so assumed this would be the cause ie loose conection.

After some reading apparently the two arn't linked,getting abit worried now,the oil could do with a change as its thin,and the oil is topped up enough.

Engine pulls like a train so hoping this is an electrical fault I can find?

Any tips on where to look at for dodgy wires?

This is my 8th r5 turbo id say its safe to say I have the bug ;-)

If it got sprayed id go for matt black like my sleeper look and dont look after cars well enought to be worthy of owning a genuine raider.

How do you upload pics onto this websight?

Hello all

I was offerd a free engine and gearbox with my car ive just bought last week,the engine aparently knocks and needs rebuilding but gearbox is supposed to be good.

Is it worth my while collecting its a 100 mile round trip or is it not worth anything and best just left for al the agro of trying to get it in the back of mrs rover 25 lol?

I had this once,check under the rear seat there is a wire that goes to the fuel pump is and check these arn't broke.As a temp fix you could run power to the wires here straight from the battery to get the pump working.

Renault 5 GT Turbo / Re: actuator
« on: 08:39, Sat 09 October 2010 »
It might help to hold boost abit moe stable,I fitted a collins -31 actuator to my t2 turbo a few years ago and that got rid of the boost spikes that I used to suffer with.
