Adding Renault integration no longer works

Updated to 2023.4.5 today.

Though I’m not sure if thats the main fault here as I also had to factory reset the car Infotainment system and the app updated too, due to CarPlay stopping working. Anything amongst those three could have been the original fault.

So. I had the official HA Renault integration working, but this morning it showed as Unavailable on my dashboard. I tried reloading it, but it was just errors in the log. I deleted the integration and attempted to re-install. But when I get to logging in with my credentials, it simply comes back with “unknown error occurred” and fails to install the integration. My credentials are correct as I used the same ones to log into the website and the phone app today.

My previous logs from this morning when it seemed to fail to work say:

aiohttp.client_exceptions.ClientResponseError: 403, message='Forbidden'

Feels like Country should be “GB” and not “BG” for a start. But I feel like the issue is some sort of updated API problem?

Faulty credentials gives an “Invalid Authentication” error. So the credentials seem to be recognised.

Same error for Country “ES”

aiohttp.client_exceptions.ClientResponseError: 403, message='Forbidden', url=URL('')

Also for country DE

Problem also Country FI

Same problem for country FR

same here for RO

I reported this on Github for the Node-RED Renault contrib. According to lskp1 there, it’s because Renault has changed an API key. The new key is on Github on his Pull Request and on the linked text, although how to make the change in the HA integration, is another issue.

From other forums, it does look like an API issue, and not related to the country.

I don’t know how to implement adding the new API key, so at a loss. Until something official is done.

Same thing here in Italy (IT) after update 2023.4.5.

Forbidden with SE as well, since a couple of days.

Any idea how long these usually takes to get fix to official integration ?

And is there any hard core workaround steps available ?

same for me IT

Same for me in DE i also think it is a Problem of the API

same here from IT.

Same for me in SI

Same for me in en GB

I had the same problem.
Found a solution here:
Now it’s working!

2023.4.6 solved this issue :wink:
