Activating the vehicle’s connectivity and sharing data

Benefit from the connected services on your vehicle by activating its connectivity. To enable your connected services to work properly,  allow your vehicle and location data to be shared.

when are the services activated in my vehicle?

before your vehicle is delivered

The activation of your services may take some time once the request has been sent.

In order to ensure that your connectivity is ready when you collect your vehicle, the activation of the Connected Services will be carried out by the Renault retailer, at the latest when the vehicle is delivered. Activation is carried out either manually from the vehicle's multimedia screen or automatically.


after your vehicle is delivered

Activate the connected services yourself from your vehicle's in-car display by pressing the button:

  • “Activate my services” for vehicles equipped with R-LINK Evolution;
  • “Connect” for vehicles equipped with R-LINK 2;
  • “Connect” for vehicles equipped with easy link;
  • "Connect" for vehicles equipped with openRlink.


However, in the event of failure to activate prior to delivery, Renault reserves the right to automatically activate the Connected Services after delivery for vehicles equipped with easy link and openR link.


To identify your vehicle's equipment, consult your commercial documents, including your order form.

Special case: Some connected services specific to electric vehicles (Z.E. Services) may require an activation code. This is given to you when the vehicle is delivered (R-LINK) or sent to the device when you connect (easy link).

what are the effects of this activation

For R-LINK Evolution, R-LINK2 and easy link, activating your vehicle's connectivity results in the processing of your vehicle and location data and allows you to:

  • make full use of your connected services and,
  • manage the subscription of your standard services or purchase optional services.


Once activated, you will be able to:

  • manage,
  • synchronise your smartphone with your vehicle using the My Renault application and take advantage of remote control services for your vehicle.
