Random starting, runs then shutdown while driving

New member. Great site. Have read all your posts so far for related problems re my Renault Clio 1.5 diesel 2004 and followed advice on site but now stuck. Replaced imobaliser sensor had the diesel fuel pump and fuel injectors totally serviced, TDC sensor cleaned not yet renewed, ECU sent for testing found to be faultless. Need to know what other sensors to check before checking the wiring loom. Will not turn over or even start when cold as pre heater warning not on. Occasionally lights up and starts works for a day or two then shuts down altogether when driving in town or on highway so no pattern. Waiting for new hazard warning light switch to arrive as this was faulty. Any suggestions.

Do you mean the starter motor wont turn the engine at certain times....

Thanks for your quick reply. Yes the starter motor will not turn the engine at certain times especially when the glow plug indicator on the dashboard is not lit.

Re: Random starting, runs then shutdown while driving

Why was this changed, " Replaced imobaliser sensor" and are you referring to the part that goes around the ignition lock?????

Re: Random starting, runs then shutdown while driving

At the beginning of this nightmare I would turn the ignition key and nothing would happen. The imobaliser light stayed on or sometimes it would flash.This happened occasionally then got more regular. Renault did diagnosis and said I needed "receiver immo ring" not sure where it fits. When car returned following day would turn over but not fueling. Back to Renault and had 4 x fuel injector overhaul, fuel injection pump, injection pump reconditioned. All in all spent euro 1,600. But car worse than before which brings me back to first post.
