Re: Renault Megane 1 - Intermittant Starting Problems

I've an 02 megane scenic authentique, which seems to have a mind of it's own....somedays it starts with first turn of the key on other days a little kick of the accelerator will help it start and then on other days it just refuses and sounds as if the battery is dud. when the last event (sounding dud) happens, I discovered that if I pop the bonnet and go to the relay fuse box and jiggle the relays up and down in their slots the car will start on the turn of the key. I at first thought that maybe one of the relays was dud, or nearly, so I replaced them with new ones , but the same starting problem exists.....I'm really puzzled, and worried that one day I may end up miles from civilisation and the damn thing gives up on me.....PLEASE,PLEASE,PLEASE is their a whiz kid out there to help sort this mystery , it's driving me crazy:
