Hi,

It probably is the Top Dead Sensor - you have the same symptoms as I did.

I would refer you to my posting above yours where I did the same thing on my 2000 scenic. I personally would not tackle it again despite you saying it costing 198 to fit a 20 sensor. I can well imagine it taking at least a couple of hours for a mechanic to disassemble/re-assemble all of the bits required for access to do the job properly - and not to end up with shredded fingers - the way I finally ended up doing it.

In summary - it is just about do-able but it requires patience, dexterity and the ability to work without actually seeing what your doing. It's a pig on a scenic because the sensor has to go at the back of the sensor mount (that you can't get to) and not the front.

Hope this helps.

Smiggles.

Top Dead Centre Sensor

Hi,
Been searching the posts for a similar problem to mine which is an intermitent starting problem on my Scenic. It sounds the same as TDC sensor reported in the posts.
Question is, where in the engine compartment is it located?

Cheers
