I mentioned this problem to one of my workmates and he said he had the same thing happen on his van ( our company uses Renault masters ).

When he went to get it sorted the the engineer said it was a loose conection on the temperature circuit for the cold start .

So up the bonnet went and I checked and cleaned all the wiring plugs I could reach with a squirt of the ever faithfull WD 40

And HEY PRESTO the tick over has returned to normall

So if you get this problem get out the WD 40 and stop panicking

Have a great weekend Steve
