Scenic II - "Check Emissions" warning light (again!)

Ok guys, I've searched all the topics about the check emissions warning lights. The first time it hapenned to my wive's Scenic II 1.6 (Manual) was 3 weeks ago. The car had trouble on the ignition for a couple of days and then the lamp went on. We took it to the local Renault garage and they told us the the camshaft sensor was damaged because of bad quality fuel. They charged us 90 euros (70GBP) for it we took the car home and the very next day the battery went flat. I did not take the car to the garage for the battery replacement. We thought that sometimes we do get bad fuel quality in Cyprus and the car is 3 1/2 years. Yesterday while I was driving the car I felt power loss and the car was shaking a little. My wife noticed the lamp coming on again. The garage is closed on Saturdays and we have a bank holiday on Monday so the car is in my garage until Tuesday

From the posts I've read this could be a TDC sensor (this is what I thought the first time I came here 3 weeks ago), the coils (although the car starts fine after the battery was replaced) or could it be the camshaft sensor they told me they replaced 3 weeks ago??

Any tips well appreciated guys.

Thanks.

Check the alternator's charging properly...

If you're experiencing misfires due to the coils not having enough power to generate a decent spark, then it could well cause the emissions warning light to come on, I'd have thought.

Plus, it would explain the dead battery.

Thanks Azurael.

Just got a phonecall from the garage. One of the four coils needs a reaplcement. So I ask the guy if I should be expecting the other three to break and he said yes!! And they charge me 90 euros (70GBP) for each coil...He also said that the company changed the factory that was making the coils because they were facing these problems. Yet they charge us 90 euros for each one...

Hi I am totally new to this forum as I bought a Renault Scenic 2.0 Automatic yesterday.

I am very interested in this thread as this is happening to mine in as much as the light comes on and the engine starts 'Hunting' and is lumpy. I have noticed that a connector on the top of the engine roughly where a camshaft sensor 'Might' be located is very loose and wobbly.

After stopping and starting again it was alright for a while until I had to put my foot down and it was lumpy again and the light came on once more.
Any advice or pointers will be greatfully read.
