Re: Renault Megane 1 - Intermittant Starting Problems

I had the same problem, and changed the TDC , another sensor and eventually identified the problem... a faulty electric relay (the one that actually activates the fuel pump). To find out if this is your problem, lift the back seat up to reveal the top of the fuel tank / pump. The turn the key, you should clearly hear the pump humming. If it does not the car wont start. Then you either have a faulty pump or a faulty relay. All you need to do then to check the relay is swap it over under the bonnet and see... It solved my problem, and I got a replacement relay from ebay for under a fiver...
