Replacing the old module - It's easy!

The problem

Irish TV's RTE Consumer Show's viewers alerted them to a problem in some of Renault cars' electric windows.

The problem lies with the electric window regulators, which can fail and result in the windows spontaneously slipping open and the windows cannot be closed again. The fault can cost the car owner up to 500 euro per window to repair. One car owner featured on the programme, who has a Renault Mégane, has three windows that aren't working and faces paying 1,500 Euro to repair them.

Problems may be experienced on any, or all, of the car's electric windows.

The cause

The cause of failure can be of two types - mechanical or electrical.
To determine which, listen for any noise or vibration whilst operating the window run switch.

If the motor can be heard to be running, or attempting to turn, the fault is almost certainly mechanical.
Otherwise, if there is no sound from the motor, or just a click from a relay, this indicates an electrical fault.
If the window operates of its own accord, this indicates an electrical problem also.

Typical mechanical faults are broken plastic clips and snapped steel cables.
Precise diagnosis will normally entail visual inspection following removal of the complete door card.
Pattern parts are readily available from numerous sources at very reasonable prices, but we do not supply these.

Electrical faults however, are almost always the result by moisture entering the 6-pin electronic control module on the electric window motor.
Problems can also result if communication between this module and the car's computer becomes corrupted, and this can result in unexpected operation of the window..

To obtain a new original motor module, however, the only option available is to buy a complete window regulator assembly, priced at several hundreds of pounds.

Two solutions:

If the cause is electrical, there are two possible options - fit one of our mini-cubes, or else a refurbished original Temic module.

Option One - Simple and inexpensive

An inexpensive and easy fix is to replace the original 6-pin Temic module with our QDI "mini-cube"™ module - a simple plug-in replacement

The "mini-cube"™ does away with the troublesome electronics of the original, and isn't over-ridden by the car's computer, but still has full control of the window from the door switch.

Unfortunately, there is no "one-touch" function, or "anti-pinch" feature, and the windows can only be operated from the normal window run switches, not by remote control.
If you have the megane CC Coupe Cabriolet, we offer an alternative special module that retains all the original features: the cabrio minibox module.

The "mini-cube" is a one inch cube, fully encapsulated, and therefore waterproof, unlike the original.
It can be used to replace the 6-pin Temic module used on any of the Renault Megane 2 windows.

Option Two - Buy refurbished

Our associates, QER Ltd, have been repairing electronic controls since 1984 and are now able to offer original Temic modules in a refurbished condition from stock.
A little more expensive than our "mini-cube"™ option, but still very reasonably priced, this option ensures that you keep all your original "comfort" features  i.e. "one-touch", and "total closure" (if your vehicle model already has this feature)
QER guarantee all their controls for 12 months, and these items are carefully coated in special lacquer to guard against the effects of moisture.
