Re: Renault - Scenic - Starting Problem *fixed*

I have just aquired a Scenic 1.6 16v 2002 with a similar fault. I am fortunate enough to have a friend that owns a breakers yard so bits are easy to get. I have changed the tdc sensor ( a new one had already been fitted, which tells me the previous owner had troubles). replaced all coils , two relays ( one I believe is the fuel pump relay ) and still the problem persits. There is fuel present but no spark, then try again and sometimes it will spark. I think there may be a possibility that the alarm system is at fault and the immobiliser may not be deactivating, stopping it sparking ( just guessing at the minute ). If I were to change this I assume I will need the ecu , key, coil from around the ignition. Is there anything else I would need.
