electrical specialist - manchester
I have an 02 scenic (1.6 petrol) with an intermittent starting problem - I've searched the forums and found this is common, with a variety of possible causes - starter motor, faulty earth strap on engine, top dead centre.... The lights come on, but the engine does not turn over. The front window opens even without the key in the ignition, then if I lock the car I get 4 beeps. Eventually it starts.
My local Renault dealer just says there's nothing wrong, and the local car electrics guy says the car has to be broken to fix it - but is there a specialist in Manchester who could nail this problem - maybe do all the likely causes? I'm sick of it - it'll never be nicked as a getaway car at least.
