A faulty or dirty TDC Sensor does not usually show up on the diagnostic tests.
Just wanted to thank you for the info ... saved me some money. My wife drives a 2000 1.6 RXE scenic and we were having these intermittent starting problems for about a month. Renault told us to book the car in but I thought I'd search on the net to see if anyone had similar problems. Found this website and did the TDC sensor clean as recommended.

Problem solved and money saved!!

Thanks so much
