Re: Renault Clio - Electronics - Intermittent starting - TDC Sensor ?

The misting problem could be due to a blocked or damp cabin filter or possibly blocked windscreen scuttle drains - both common problems.

Does the engine spin over OK when attempting to start?

Have a close look at the red immobiliser light. When parked it should flash slowly. Try inserting the key and then switching the ignition on - watch carefully - does the light change - if so what is occuring.
