Remove the back of the computer, gently tap all the connections with a hammer and then spray liberally with WD40. No charge for the advice mate (y) :D
Localised Dave. I’m no expert but, I’d say between nose and chin. Stops when I throw money at it. Any ideas mate ? ??
I'm not an expert either but it sounds like a loose jaw joint; i'm sure @Dave Spence would recommend Duct Tape!

But once again;

No warranty or guarantee comes with this advice, and not in any way employed by said, @Dave Spence

Phoned the Renault garage this morning and got it booked in for Friday so took it to a local garage instead. They checked the fault codes on it and it came up with a list of loads of historic ones, they've reset them and it's out of limp home mode for now, so I'm going to drive it to Measham today for work and see what happens.

If your Dad has a code reader couldn't he have cleared the codes from the ECU?

Yeah it's a bit of extra stress to todays work knowing that it might reappear and I could be on a motorway in limp home mode but jobs got to be done as tenants are moving in tomorrow so I'll see what happens.

Take the code reader, at least you can clear any faults and limp home when it happens, it may come straight back, but it may not. I always carry a code reader when on long trips.

Yes mate, Diesel. Know nothing about cars myself but just asked my dad about DPF filters and he reckons because I do so many miles it might not be that and thinks it's these two pipes for the exhaust sensor.

I'm now considering whether I should take it to a Megane Specialist or just round the corner to a local garage on Monday morning.
Hi.
Just take it for a blast on the motorway,roughly 75-80 mph for a good 10 mins,that will automatically start a regen and clean.

Good idea on taking the code reader. Apparently my dad couldn't reset the fault with it when he tried though, and it only threw up one error message, whereas the garage one showed all the historical faults too. It went ok on the motorway today though, good 100 mile round trip of mostly fast roads and motorways with no fault, and no limp home mode! Phew! :) (y)

Too much electronics on cars these days pal. Hope its sorted now and it was just a hiccup. ?

You can maybe clean the ERG yourself, it's only a flap that gets stuck usually. I say maybe before any experts jump on me. :)
Just beat me to it EP.
Driving to the tackle shop today in my Renault Megane, first of all I had an error message come up "Check Cruise Control". Flicked the CC switch and it went off to be replaced by an error message "Check Injection System". Think it went into low power mode, limited my acceleration. The message went off when I restarted the car after going to the shop but I'm still worried about it.

My dad has put a 'meter' on the car to check the error messages and reckons the CC message is a standard one and nothing to worry about, but the injection system one is most likely to be a set of 'pipes' made of rubber that are perishable, and bit of a faff to get at.

Reckon I should take it to a garage? Don't want to be breaking down miles from home next week at work.
Having the same issues with my megane did you get it fixed and if so what was the solution? Thanks

Check injection warning can be related to so many different things it can be an open cheque book of fixes.
I've had that warning on my Megan for nearly 8 years now.
In that time it's had a new turbo. Two new egr valves. Replacement turbo pipes replacement sensors. One thing I got told back then was to replace the glow plugs, which I have never done as it still starts the same as it did when I bought it new. Maybe I should just to see if if it goes away. ?

It went into a garage twice, first time they replaced a 'pressure sensor' and the fault came back within a week. Second time it went into the garage they replaced a different pressure sensor and I was sceptical it would fix it but it seems to have done the trick a couple of months later. Hold tight and will ask my dad to see if he knows exactly what pressure sensor sorted it for me.

Sorry just asked my dad and he doesn't know which pressure sensor fixed it in the end either but I think it was exhaust system related.
