Renault Laguna II - Phase 1 - Electronics - Only starting with the clutch down

up untill tuesday my laguna II 1.9dci would always start with the card in and the button pressed now it only stsrts if those are done and the clutch is pressed even though the car is in neutral!

what i was wondering is whether there is a neutral sensor on the gearbox like a motorbike and the car now thinks it is in gear when it isnt requiring the need for the clutch to be pressed

any help on this i.e. the location of the neutral switch or any possible remedys would be most appreciated.

thanks Gareth

Yes the Neutral switch is located on top of the gearbox..

It is tricky to get to due to the pipes/battery tray..

Check all the fuses at the drivers end of the dash. I had a similar problem after having a tow bar fitted incorrectly at Renault.

When connecting up the wires for the caravan, the 4th fuse down in the RH side bank blew, then I had to press the clutch down too.

Although on mine the service warning light was coming on via the dash panel lights, and other circuits were affected.

BTW you'll need some long nosed pliers theres not all that much space in there.
I hope this helps

Webcode, I may have a simliar problem. When moving off from cold my Laguna II seems to hold the revs in first gear only (fine in all other gears)

This doesn't seem to happen as often when the car is warm. Do you think I have a faulty gearbox switch also? I was thinking that maybe the clutch pedal switch may be at fault?

No need for the pliers - On Hondos picture, the Orange 'thing' at the top-right is a tool for extracting the fuses.
