And please be nice because it's my first time
Hubby has my old megane diesel estate (megane II?) 2004 plate. For the past few days it has been a stroppy mare in whether it will start or not.
If you unlock it and the dash lights up when the door is opened, it will start. If the dash doesn't light up, it wont... but will start if you use jump leads.
Took it today to get the battery checked, battery is tested and is fine, reconected and it then needs a jump. Spoke to an autoelectrician who suggests trying a new battery. So we do and nope it won't start, old one goes back in and it starts. Luckily we have a screaming toddler so the guy doesn't hang about wanting payment for the almost purchase of a battery we don't need.
So after searching your forums tonight, I keep finding reference to a top dead centre (sensor is it?) failure causing intermitent starting problems. But since I am no good with engines, I can't work out what it does and if it would cause our problems. Wiki failed me. Plus I have homework to do and was hoping someone else would look into it all for me
Suggestions welcome before hubby books it into the £25ph autoelectricians on Wednesday and I have to tell him that I actually spent the emergency savings on this really cute outfit for the above mentioned screaming toddler. And maybe also some shoes that are hidden under the bed...
