Renault Scenic w-reg starting problem

We have a scenic w-reg 1.6 auto (forgive me we dont know the model name)

It has developed a fault that wont allow it to start. The start motor simply turns the engine over but it refuses to fire.

i will point out now that the immobliser light is nearly allways on.

OK so things weve tried.....

locking and unlocking the doors. Sometimes the doors get confused, for example we have had the car start with the doors locked This used to be a problem on fords but i tired the old ford tactic of locking and unlocking the car with the key 5 times to no avail. Its random if it works or not.

We were told to change the batteries in the fobs since they may have enough power to unlock the doors but not the alarm (located in the wing mirror?). This worked for a few weeks and the fault started again

We are getting desperate now, because the car just simply will not start at all

thanks in advance

Hi -D- and welcome


You know you've spent too much time on the computer when you spill milk and the first thing you think is, 'edit, undo.'

Hello Dan,welcome to the forum.

Have you got a spare key you can try?

I'm sure that your keys have chips in them that switch the immobiliser off when you put the key in the ignition.Around the ignition there is an aerial that picks up the signal from the key,so it is either the key or aerial that is faulty.

Earlier Renaults have the immobiliser built in with key blip and central locking,but I don't think this is the case with yours.

If you have a spare key,try it and get back to us.

I'd rather push my Alfa than drive a BMW....
