Is something up with your Renault Kangoo? Would you like to know how to identify the problem quickly and get it fixed? Check out this informative guide on common Renault Kangoo faults and malfunctions, repairs and previous recalls.

Common problems with the Renault Kangoo

  • Starting problems

This is a pretty common issue for the Kangoo. You may find that the van won’t start at all and the preheating indicator light keeps flashing on the dashboard. There are a number of possible causes for this, such as poor battery connections, a bad fuel pump or blocked fuel hoses. When inspecting the vehicle, it’s a good idea to check the fuel pump assembly first, as well as the Renault Kangoo fuel pressure sensor.

  • Electrical problems

Some of the most commonly reported problems concern the van’s electrical system. Many faults can be traced to bad battery connections, blown fuses or faulty wiring. This can sometimes cause the dashboard lights to flash at random, and the power window mechanisms may stop working due to a poor electrical connection.

  • Rough idling

There have been some complaints about idling being rough when in neutral. The ignition coils are often the culprit in these cases. Other causes could include a blocked Renault Kangoo fuel filter, a fuel injector fault, or spark plug failure.

  • Fuel injector problems

Injector failure is a common issue for Kangoos with 1.5 dci engines. Contaminants, such as carbon deposits, oil residues and fuel impurities, can build up around the injectors nozzles, preventing them from spraying the correct amount of fuel. If the engine struggles to start, misfires and becomes less fuel efficient, it may be time to replace the injectors on your Renault Kangoo.

  • Gearbox problems

Premature wear can be an issue for the gearboxes fitted to this model. when the gears regularly slip or won’t shift properly, it is often due to a worn gear linkage. You may hear strange noises coming from the transmission, such as grinding, bumping or squealing sounds.

  • Problems with the van’s central locking system

For example, some Renault Kangoo owners report that they are unable to open and lock the rear sliding door due to a faulty lock mechanism. Replacing the door lock yourself could help you to save on maintenance costs.

  • Timing belt troubles

This is a particular weak spot for models with a diesel engine. If the timing belt is worn, damaged or loose, the check engine light should turn on to notify you that there’s a problem. Symptoms of a bad drive belt include a misfiring engine, a loss of power, a ticking noise, abnormal engine revs, and increased exhaust fumes.

  • Fuel pump problems

If your Renault Kangoo’s fuel pressure is abnormally low, there’s a strong possibility that there’s something wrong with the Renault Kangoo fuel pump. Other symptoms of fuel pump failure include a loud whining noise coming from the fuel tank, starting difficulties, a sputtering or surging engine, and a loss of power when driving uphill or accelerating. Moreover, it is important to replace fuel filters on time to avoid pipe blockages and unnecessary wear in the fuel supply system.

  • Stop & Start malfunction

There was a recall in 2019 due to a problem with the stop & start function in vehicles affecting vehicles built at the Maubeuge plant between 5 December 2018 and 19 February 2019. Due to the malfunction, there was a possibility that the engine would keep running while the van was stationary, increasing the risk of a road accident. If you experience a similar fault, you may need to get a software update at your local dealership.
