Re: Renault Megane 1 - Intermittant Starting Problems

Just so you all know the TDC / Crankshaft Sensor can be purchased from eBay for 12.00

I recommend you phone your local Renault dealers parts department and ask for the part number, they will ask for you registration and tell.

They told me it would cost 31.30 so I opted for eBay , and since Iv already located the sensor and cleaned it I am confident that I can replace it.

I have a 2003 Renault Megane 1.6 16v Dynamique which doesn't start when I press the ignition button. Normally I would either have to rev the engine up to 3k revs for 5 seconds or start the engine and let it cut out 3 times before it would start with no assistance.

Hopefully will received the part in the next few days. Ill let you know when Iv replaced it and whether I was successful.

Thanks again for everyone's help on this forum.
