Welcome to the forum. The light is the electrical incident light. The ECU has picked up a fault. Does the car run rough when this happens if so there could be a problem with the coil pack and this will need attending to before further problems are cuased, such as unburnt fuel in the cat. The easy solution is to get the fault codes read by an auto electrician, this should pinpoint the problem. Check the megane Knowledge base or try a forum search for further advice

Similar Electric fault light problem

Hello another newbe here
Let me say I have very little technical knowledge so please keep everything simple, as jargon free as poss.

I have a Megane rt 1.6e megane scenic 98, (I copied from v5 description), The electric fault light comes on when starting up and goes off again shortly after, I have a very nice man who's offered to have a look for me but suggested the forum for ideas where to look.
Anyone out there know of anything he can try before we send my baby in for a diagnostic test, costly and would really like to avoid this if i can

Had the same problem with my 98 scenic very intermittent would not start. Kept trying would eventually start and be alright for many months. Should not be an mot issue. Good luck

No not really, you're not the first person to ask that and I'm sure that you won't be the last :)

There's a Megane articles section and soon to me a Megane FAQ's section. Click here
