The only way I can get it started is by accelerating and keeping it a few seconds over 1500 revs then it syncs the revs and the car acts normally.

here is a video explaining this better:
This is a car under warranty and if dealer has a problem diagnosing this its time to contact Renault customer services ..DO NOT let anyone else touch the car as you may invalidate the warranty

My super sonic sonar radar will help me!
