R-LINK is great as it is but the engineering team of RENAULT has putted something very helpfull and very interactive for us like: ANDROID CAR PLAY, CAR SOUND ENGINE, RS PARAMETRAGE, RACE MODE and alot of complex functionalities.
So let’s start with the tool that can help us with the activation:
DDT4all is an open-source program with a friendly graphical interface. With this program and a CAN network with a cheap ELM327 interface, you can access various control devices and change parameters via the OBD interface. For example, functions can be unlocked that are actually withheld from other models (eg comfort indicators, permanent tacho lighting). Using the application in nonexpert mode should not be harmful to your vehicle (leave the expert mode button released)
The author declines all responsibility for the bad use of this tool. You are the only responsible. This tool is mainly aimed at CAN ISO_TP network study.
The devices discussed in this manual, software, and methods for working with them are not released by the car manufacturer.
The potentially unrestrained use can lead to work interruptions or failure, both individual units and components of the car, as well as the car as a whole, they can also be a reason to reduce the level of vehicle safety and reject the warranty service.
Anyone who chooses to do experiments on their car needs to understand all the risks and only take them on board.
I am not responsible for any damage caused to users of this manual and third parties.
And now if you are ok, we can start with basic changes that we will cover in this article:
What will we need, first of all?
- An OBD2 interface ( ELM327 V1.5 mandatory with PIC 18F25K80) compatible, whether it is USB, Bluetooth or Wi-Fi, you can read about the versions here;
- The correct driver for the interface in case of USB can be Prolific USB – SERIAL and can be download from the LINK
- A laptop PC with Windows (tested with 7 and 10);
- The DDT4ALL software, which you will find(version 5.3.5 updated to 20.01.2019 by Zmiterm) or the official owner Cedricp GitHub release DOWNLOAD LINK HERE for all the DDT4ALL + DACIA database last tested + PYREN and driver necessary for USB ELM OBD SCANNER
- A minimum of computer skills, otherwise it is better to leave it alone …
NOW it’s time to start to activate some of main functionalities that depends of the version that you have for the R-LINK!
1. ANDROID AND APPLE CAR PLAY
Then you can change the following settings:
- SPVR: Present
- Carplay: Authorized
- AAP: Authorized
- with AHA
- with infotainment AND S&S
The main list functionalities explained are here:
- SPVR for iPhone: Present (to use SIRI with a long press on the voice command button just in Bluetooth even if you do not have Carplay)
- Android Auto feature: Present
- Mirror Link feature: Not Present
- MW activation: Not Present (if you want to disable these radio bands so that they do not appear anymore)
- LW activation: Not Present (if you want to disable these radio bands so that they do not appear anymore)
- SPVR for others Phones: Present (to get the Google Voice Assistant just in Bluetooth even without plugging in and running Android Auto).
2. VIDEO PLAY activation + restriction on the road out
You can also activate the INFOTAINMENT by permited the ionizer, clim display, rear clim, heated widescreen.
3. WELCOME IMAGE ON RLINK
4. ENGINE SOUND APP
These app is amazing and due to some simple configuration from rlink the system audio is able to get you correlated with the torque some special sounds in the system. It is very funny and sounds amazing :X (Specially the old BEETLE)

7. RACE MOD MULTISENSE
This is the most of the hidden functionalities because is activating like the STAGE 1 SPORT MODE for your RENAULT MEGANE
It is assumed that your Multisense is already active, otherwise follow the other guide to activate it. After this activation you will lose the Eco mode but you can recreate it in the personal page setting it as if it were Eco. The dedicated key below the screen will have the same function as the standard Multisense key.
So let’s start with the activations:
The list will be continued and if you are interested about some special
The last step for each config window is to validate with the big yellow button: Write RadNav 2.0 config .
On the lower part you will see the frames of writing scroll. Once that’s good you can restart the Renault R-Link 2 with a long press on the power button of the R-Link 2 or by pressing the KEY OFF / ON RESET.
If you activate it on a Megane sedan, the photo of the Megane RS will appear on the multisense, on the contrary, your car will remain on the display. The word Eco remains on the dashboard when using the Race because the dedicated graphics are missing so it is not possible to see it written. Megane Sedan Megane Sporter Race mode greatly increases the response of the gas pedal and limits the intervention of the ESC to a minimum (it is not completely deactivated). It also unlocks some choices on the Multisense panel such as the responsiveness of the gas pedal and ESC control.
BE CAREFULL: Is forbidden to push the HARD RESET because is virginizing you RLINK.
How to repair R Link 2 with a black screen after HIGH MID or VIRGIN MODE button
- run the launcher _pyren_launcher.py
- choose COM port of your ELM or its IP address in case of WiFi
- press “Macro” button
- choose one of the next 4 files
- wait while the macro is executing.
13:712:CAN500# 13:712:CAN500# 1003 50 03 13:712:CAN500# 13:712:CAN500# # HIGH 1 768x1024 13:712:CAN500# 2E2303032802131303003C000004500014001E001E040011C5002C006967 6E 23 13:712:CAN500# 13:712:CAN500# wait 2 13:712:CAN500# # reload rlink2 13:712:CAN500# 1101 61 01 13:712:CAN500# exit **************************************** * * ERRORS STATISTIC * * error_frame = 0 * error_bufferfull = 0 * error_question = 0 * error_nodata = 0 * error_timeout = 0 * error_rx = 0 * error_can = 0 * * RESPONSE TIME (Average) * * response_time = 0.000 * **************************************** pyren $
The r-link 2 should go to reboot in the end.
If you are lucky and chosen right macro file then you will see working screen else wait a minute and repeat the process with another macro file.
