I had something similar on my Laggy. Did a battery change and that worked for about 2 days (old battery was original, 5 years old and had a few dead cells anyway).

Took it into Renault and when they tried it fired everytime. They did a test on the TDC and it was showing as faulty. They swapped this (total bill was about 100 for new sensor, labour and the dreaded dignostics) and since then it hasnt caused me any snags.

There are a few post on the forums on how to remove and clean the TDC , which you can try, or if not feeling brave, get the main stealer to swap it for you.

Hope that helps
