Have you cleaned it yet?
I'd use a little carbie/ throttle body spray cleaner to remove the deposits on it, spray some onto a rag and wipe it over. Don't use WD40 as it's only really a water dispersant/short term lube spray and will dry and leave a residue which will make it dirty up faster this time.
Try a little metholated spirit or kerosene if you haven't anything else, just make sure you wipe it dry carefully and don't leave any visible residue and you should be fine.
ALso, while you are there, unplug and replug the connection a few times to clean the points in it.
The area to clean is the outer most 'point' opposite the wire end, which would be up very close to the flywheel pick-up as it spins by.

no i have not cleaned it. i found a mechanic at my work who use to be a renault mechanic. he had a look and found that the relay charge had blown (that pink plug thing) so he replaced it and bu still almost has power cut off when idle but doesnt happen really. now no air comes out the heaters which is something else thats blown due to a leak in the heater tank he is gunna check it out and fix it. tho its only done 60k i bought it and have nearly replaced everything under the bonnet bar the engine and TDC Sensor.

ive had this car a month now and yet to drive it without a problem

just to update still not got this idle and cutting off at junctions problem fully fixed and the heater motor may need replacing which is why there was no air.

i saw a problem with a laguna with similar cutting out problems and someone said it was a sensor on the exhaust needing a 22m spanner to unbolt it. does a megane have this sensor?

can someone tell me all the main sensors that may be the fault in a megane?

eg TDC , MAP, etc
