  • That was the basis of my second question. But also, as @ggboy mentioned, going into reverse gear seems to be a common thread in many similar occurrences. Happened to me. I was within hours of taking the box out (I knew it wasn't a battery problem at the time) and someone else suggested I try a gearbox software reset/update. Surprisingly it worked.

Mine was a DF388 error - Clutch 1 fault. I couldn't find a problem - checked all the elec connections etc. Turned out a reprogram sorted it. Need a Renault garage though, and no guarantee that it will work. Mine was a 2011 Grand Scenic, same gearbox. The EDC box has two shafts - one has gears 1, 3 and 5 and the other has Reverse, 2, 4 and 6. If one clutch/shaft assembly fails (or the system thinks it has failed) it will use only the odd or the even gears. Sounds like this failure mode on your car is using R246 only. If it really is a gearbox failure it is a big problem. There's a chance a reprogram will sort it - better that 50% - on the basis that these actually are quite reliable boxes. I was able to clear the codes each time they appeared, after which they returned quite quickly but the gearbox worked fine in between. This was my clue that the gearbox was not physically defective. First thing to check though is that all the connectors etc are in good condition. Short circuit to earth sounds like there might be an external elec problem.

Good luck and let us know how you get along.

Difficult to say from here but I really doubt the valve body needs changing. It would be useful if more people with the same problem actually returned to the forum to say how they resolved it.

What are the symptoms. Have you tried the other options above?

Don't worry about language, it's ok. I "think" it's a software problem, or a bad battery. Battery only lasts 5-6 years so if close to this it needs changing anyway. Otherwise, you need a good Renault technician. Fault code says "Clutch" but after turning off it works for a while so it obviously hasn't failed mechanically. Exactly the same happened to me but I needed Renault to reprogram the box. Sorry I can't be more help from here but unless you can get some guarantees from Renault that a new valve body will fix it I would get a second opinion. Mechanically these are reliable gearboxes. Software and external electrical connections, and a reliable 12v supply, are their weaknesses. Sorry I can't be more positive. Let us know what happens.
