Renault Laguna II Electrical

I have a Laguna 1600 that has not given one problem since the day I got it, until today. The vehicle will not start when you press th ignition button, It goes through the process of trying to start but the starter does not engage. Battery is fully charged, battery connections are clean, starter relay is working but no click or motion from the starter or solenoid. Is there any other checks as the starter has never given any trouble. When you bump start the car it will start all day if you leave it over night any try again in the morning it does not start. Any ideas???

Hello and welcome to the forum.

What you have to determine is if the starter motor is getting the right 12 volt feeds when you push the button.If it is,then the starter motor is at fault,if it's not,then there is a problem somewhere else.

There should be 2 wires running to the starter motor,one thick one which is the main and permanent feed from the battery,and another thinner one which is the feed from the ignition switch/button.Disconnect this one,and see if you get 12 volts through it (with a test light or multimeter) when you operate the button.

This will narrow down where the fault lays.Any more help you need with doing this,please don't be afraid to ask.

Edit;Just one thought,does it start if you put your foot on the clutch?.There is a fuse that can blow which can cause this kind of fault......

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

I will try this tomorrow, I failed to mention that when you bump start it in thhe morning the car starts all day until the following morning. Do you know if there is an oil sensor that scopes the viscosity of the oil as the car has completed 16000 miles from its last service is there a sensor like this that would immobilise the starter to stop the car starting?
