A faulty TDC sensor rarely causes the warning light to come on. Better still for some weird reason it rare for such a fault to be detected by diagnostic equipment. I expect it's because most TDC sensor faults can be intermittent.
If it were mine I would get it cleaned and also its electrical connections checked. This is a fairly common problem on Renault engines. It is relatively easy to check. Sometimes when trying to diagnose engine problems it verty much a process of elimination
