Re: Renault Megane 1 - Intermittant Starting Problems

I joined the Renault forum because of the same problems. Mine is an X reg with a few miles on the clock (273,500 actually). I had the TDC changed and it worked fine for quite a while. Sometimes when starting up the revs go up and then die down to 0 and the engine cuts out, sometimes it dies down to 0 but keeps running. When it plays up it can cut out when stopping at a junction or turning a corner ( as it has power assisted steering this is a tad inconievt). Some times when turing the key it does now't for a few attempts and then fires up no problem. I will try the trick about waiting for the imobilser to go out and keep you posted. Although it is not nice when your car does not want to start but it is comforting to know I am not the only one!

All forum uses, keep up the good work!
