After they replaced the ecu , the car was running ok for about 4 months but then it started playing up again and now the fault is occuring after every trip when I stop and then restart the journey. I did get in touch with Renault Uk who were not of much help, I have not taken the car to Renault garage again as I don't think they got any real idea about the cause of the problem, they just keep on replacing parts in the hope of fixing it but its me who is paying for it.

So my friend I am just living with the fault for the time being.
If your car gets fixed please let me know as to what was the cause of the problem.

Thanks and Good luck

Hi Kuldip

thanks for reply , my mechanic has started to look at the potentiometers which deliver the information electronically from the throttle peddle to the throttle body . In my laguna
there in no cable but an electronic signal . If this signal is faulty the car will act up intermittently as you described

hope this is of help and good luck
