Re: Renault - Scenic - Starting Problem *fixed*

They are the same thing,Renault generally call them TDC Sensors but most other manufactuers call them crankshaft position sensors.

I'd rather push my Alfa than drive a BMW....

Re: Renault - Scenic - Starting Problem *fixed*

Hi,

I had a problem with my scenic today,it would not start. Went out okay but broke down at my daughter's school.

Last week the central locking kept opening and closing on it's own, I do not know if this is related to the starter problem?

What happened when I pressed the start button was lots of whirring noise, the dash flashed on and off.... and various messages flashed on and off injection fault, steering lock, steering unlocked, then clicking noises.

I did get it started after 10 min by putting my foot on the gas, like you would do in a normal car! Once it was going it drove fine. Got it home and tried to start again but same problem.

Any ideas? From what I have read it might be a sensor issue? Or starter moter fault?

Re: Renault - Scenic - Starting Problem *fixed*

Hi all first time poster long time reader, i have a 00 renault scenic II, love the car but its giving me awful trouble, as above it starts when she wants might be sighting there 10 to 15 mins before she starts have changed the tdc / crank sensor twice along with changing plugs and putting in a new starting motor works fine or a few days each time I've changed the sensor but then back to the same trouble I'm at my wits end with the thing. ANY help at all would be great thinking of sticking a match to it.

I took the TDC sensor out the following weekend when i had time, cleaned it once more - replaced and no improvement.
Any thoughts out there on what next to do?
Thanks
same has happened me with this intermittent starting - my car is 2005 renault scenic dci 80. local garage did diagnostics and only tdc sensor came up faulty. it was replaced with new one but did not make any difference. in fact it is probably worse than before. does anyone know what else could be causing this issue?
