    Default COM2000 Replacement Records

    I had my 4th COM2000 installed last week, but I'm not the record winner on the 307 List.

    Our current record is 6 COM2000s for a single car.

    How many COM2000s have been installed in your car?

    My 2003 Xsara VTS was still on it's original when I traded it in in August.

    The GTi is still ok after 3 months. Touch wood.

    Yeah but they only wear out if you actually use the indicators

    Lucky you didn't try the cruise control (thinking of that American who sued casue he thought cruise control = auto pilot ).

    Default Combination sw.

    Ho, Hum. [Brushes fingernails on lapels]. My 25yo 504 still has its original combination switch, as did my earlier 404's. So much for progress?

    I recall changing these switches under warranty on Ren.21's. Two within weeks on one car. They were made by Valeo.

    Along with the cockroach the 404/504 switches will be the only thing surviving come the end of the world.

    I have known of a couple of people getting these replaced out of warranty at no cost.

    Still this is an issue that should have solved long ago.

    Default Warranty

    Mine was replaced out of warranty.

    I must admit to having concern re what may happen if there is a next time.

    Surely something with such a history is a design or manufacturing fault and should have been rectified. This is one area IMO that the French have to improve on. How long did similar isssues with PSA clutch cables go on for and no solution other than replace and wait for next one to bind.

    I wont mention Renault Automatics.

    Pardon my ignorance guys but are you talking about the indicator stalk/switch. Mine in the GTi6 is playing funny buggers. Every now and again I hear irregular clicking (sounding like the indicator flasher can noise) coming from that area low down on the right side of the steering wheel. Car was doing it when I took it for a test drive and the guy said he had it fixed for the roadworthy but it reappeared a month after I picked it up. I still haven't been able to assess whether my indicators are flashing away happily at the time. They are not flashing on my dash.

    We are talking about the indicator stalk/switch, but not like the one in the 306. We are referring to the stalks used on all the new Pugs/Cits, while the stalks on the 306 are different.

    The problem you describe sounds exactly like what happens in my dads Xsara (pre COM2000 stalks, similar layout to the 306). It sounds like a bad contact, since the problem is not always there, it only happens every now and then. Sound the flasher unit clicking away, but the lights are not flashing on the dash.

    The problem you have sounds like one I have just cured on my XM. If you remove the switch and gently disassemble it (assuming it is similar to the XM one) you will find inside it has one large curved track on one side which I assume to be the + feed to the circuit and the other side has two half tracks with a gap in the middle. In between these two half tracks is a small plastic block which is meant to isolate the pointy contact from the two half tracks and the large track (with me on this?)

    Anyway, over time the small plastic bloke wears away and allows the pointy contact to make just enough contact or be near enough to the circuit for a small amount of current to track through. This makes the relay rattle like a gieger counter but the lights do not flash. DAMNED annoying.

    Anyway, when I pulled the switch apart I then cleaned it well with contact cleaner, then gradually built up some height on the plastic block with some of my wife's clear nail polish (I suppose colours wouldn't matter - unless there are metal particles) and while I was at it I also put some nail polish on the middle of the large track to provide a little more insulation (if anyone quotes and edits this and adds words like "also put some on my nails" I will find them and their car and....)

    Anyway, I allowed the lot to dry, put the switch back together, put it back in the car and it has been fine so far.
