Re: Renault Megane 1 - Intermittant Starting Problems

OZ- I have a megane RXT 1.6 automatic, model 2001 !
The engine still going well, except for a new problem.
The car has started to refuse to start- the gear handle is stuck in parking, and once the engine started, but gear handle still stuck.
The garage "fixed" it, and for a day, no problems.

Now even the start failed.
Got it started by turning the key- before actually gojng to the full START engine position- pressed a side button on the gear handle- and was then able to release the gear handle from Parking. After moving into a gear, then rentering it into parking, was able to START and drive off.

Is it the TDC sensor simply dirty, before complaining to the garage? Or, some other problem?
Currently in ezr0's garage:
Megane 2000
