Renault Scenic 1 - Not Turning Over*FIXED*
Hi all - My daughter's 1.6 '98 scenic (8v) has suddenly refused to start, worked fine last night, nothing left on. Battery OK, headlamps are bright. Turn ignition on and fuel pump runs, but no click - nothing. 12.9 volts at the main pos lead from the thermal fuse under the bonnet, bump starts quite happily.
I'm thinking solenoid or starter motor, but I'm not familiar with the electronics on Renaults so wondered if there's a fuse or relay somewhere that might be loose/faulty.
Searched the forum and have some ideas, going to check earth straps and various connections next.
They've picked the most awkward place to hide the starter, obviously it's an underneath job to remove it - is it straightforward or do you need to drop the exhaust/remove the gearbox/take the seats out
to get the starter out . . .
