the same thing happened to mine and the Forum told me what it was - they all were right!!!they even send pics out so I could see where it get fitted. Brill!!!!

It cost me 22 from the dealer and I got some one to fit it for me for a few quid. 30 min later it was done - no problem.

This is the first time i have posted , so bear with me .
My father has a renault megane elize 1.6 on a v plate that has developed an annoying problem of late. The problem he's reporting is that when he goes anywhere, he can park the car up and anything up to an hour later, he comes back to it and it wont start, but starts eventually as normal.
He has had it into Reg Vardy , charged him 65 for a diagnostic check but could find no fault, a mechanic mentioned that it may be something to do with the TDCS sensor, and would cost around 70, but said that even this may not solve the problem.
Obviously father is a bit reluctant to pay around 140 and not get rid of the problem.
Any one got any ideas or had similar problems ?.
Thanks in advance for any useful info.

starting problems

I also have a problem with my Meagane 1.6 alise. It starts no bother everytime but quite often it just cuts out and does not hold the revs even after a few miles. It's like trying to run the car without a choke on. But when i stop the engine for a while and restart it, it's fine. Could this also be the TDC or something completly different.

My has the same symptoms as vinnyl. Turn the key, nothing, if I hold it turned sometimes it fires up. The lights do not dim at all when the key is turned. There is just silence, it does not turn over. Not sure if it is related, but the LCD display for time and temperature has segments missing intermittantly and i also have a problem with the heater blower not working (But this could be a seperate issue). I did change the TDC sensor for one I had spare but no improvement. not sure if it is an earthing or battery problem? I checked the earth lead from the block to the chassis and it looks ok, are there any onther earthing points?
