I have a Renault Scenic Dynamique + (16V Auto). For the past few days, the vehicle has refused to start for me. After about 5 or 6 goes, the car finally started. The engine would turn over but just not fire. In recent days, the car just hasn't started no matter how many times I tried. The doors unlock remotely no problem; it's just the engine.
I had a local mechanic look at it and he tried all the usual things but stated that it must have been a computerised fault. A mobile mechanic attended today and said that no faults were showing up on his computer. He stated that a usual problem is either the Crankshaft Sensor (Top level sensor?) or the Immobiliser. At the computer was showing no faults, he said that it was more than likely the immobiliser.
Now, I have been advised that I need to book the car in with a Renault dealership to get this problem looked at but a) I don't want to pay their prices and b) I cant guarentee that the engine will fire on the day of the scheduled repairs.
Any advice anybody can offer?
