Scenic 2002 with same problem.

My Megane Scenic Automatic (DP0) 2002 2.0L 16V (F4R) does exactly the same thing.

Especially when it is hot outside and I am using the A/C.

I tried cleaning the ecu , cleaning the throttle connector and throttle body , changed MAP sensor , changed the "unit" which controls the radiator fan, I even changed the TDC sensor.

Nothing helped.

Any Ideas?

any sugestions?

I have the same problem with my scenic 2.0 16V Automatic. Left hand drive.

Mine has an electronic throttle. "Drive by wire"

The cable from the acceleration pedal is going into an electronic device with a connector to a loom which goes to the ecu . (which probable measures the pedal's position and informs the ecu , which in its turn gives a command to the throttle).

This device is located under the bonnet on the driver's side right next to a very large connector (similar to the ecu 's connector).

its connector to the loom (to the ecu ) has a little metallic wire which locks it into its position.

I disconnected the battery, took out the small metallic wire, disconnected the connector and sprayed a lot of contact spray on both sides. Connected it again and the warning lamp was off.

Now 4 days after it is still off.

Maybe this helps.
