Total starting failure

Have a megane scenic rx4.
Was driving/starting fine and then just would not start.
As a diesel, first thought was fuel or air. Turned over fine but just would not bite.RAC man said that no fuel seemed to be coming through to the engine but could not fathom it
out so we were taken to our autoelectrics garage.
They thought that it was the emu but the computer would not read. So, it was towed to the local Ren. garage for a second opinion only to have the same lack of read out.
In the end it was the breaking of 2 wires in the loom that had caused the lack of readout and fault. Total cost including Renualts 60 charged non result, 380 plus vat.
So if you have the same fault, try to cut corners and save some dosh.
Good luck.
Currently in mactheknife's garage:
