My father has a renault megane elize 1.6 on a v plate that has developed an annoying problem of late. The problem he's reporting is that when he goes anywhere, he can park the car up and anything up to an hour later, he comes back to it and it wont start, but starts eventually as normal.
He has had it into Reg Vardy , charged him 65 for a diagnostic check but could find no fault, a mechanic mentioned that it may be something to do with the TDCS sensor, and would cost around 70, but said that even this may not solve the problem.
Obviously father is a bit reluctant to pay around 140 and not get rid of the problem.
Any one got any ideas or had similar problems ?.
Thanks in advance for any useful info.
Cheers Albi
