Renault scenic rx4

I have the same problems. brilliant car but will not start sometimes. Most of the while it is fine, but then after I have been out stopping and starting all day I will get back in it and it turns over but just will not start. We have been told it is the Top Dead Centre Sensor and we should clean it but please tell us where it actually is on the engine, as we have no idea. Then perhaps the problem will be solved. Please help........

Hi... I have a 2001 renault scenic 1.6 sport. I have been having problems with starting, it starts fine every morning, it just seems to happen after it has been run! It does not happen every time just...

Hi Roy

It could be many things causing this problem but we're going to start with the most common on Renault's testing the LED light on your instrument panel, when you install your key to start if it's flashing rapidly then the problem is with the immobilizer.

Suggestion number two the engine TDC sensor or in other terms the engine speed sensor also known as flywheel sensor which can be found under the airbox filter, mounted to the gearbox in between gearbox and engine, when the problem occurs place your hand and try to move the connector that is connected to the TDC and then try to start the engine normally it's a connector problem and not the actual sensor.
If this does not solve your problem I have further suggestions.

Renault megane scenic RX4 climate control fan has failed

the vehicle is old enough that the fan blower motor sounds like it is in need of replacing. when you hit the dash it causes the brushes in the motor to contact enough to start the electrical connection, it may stop when it gets hot, or is turned off. the ticking sound is more than likely the bearings wore in the motor enough to cause the cage fan to touch the housing enough to cause the sound.

Leak into passenger footwell (LHS) on Renault Scenic RX4

It sounds like you may have a blocked drain in the evaporator box. This is where the heater core and evaporator are located.

If you look under the vehicle about where the heater is located, you should see a small tube sticking down ( plastic or rubber ) this should be he drain.

You can squeese the tube open and see if it will drain, If not it may be clogged up with dirt and debris that may require the box to be removed and cleaned.

Check the air inlet, usually located in front of the windsheild, just under the wipers for debris. Keep this area clear. If it has a lot of leaves or other things around it, it can cause water to build up and flood the evaporator box, as well as get down inside.

You may need to take this to a shop that can put it on a lift and get at the drain from the underside, they may be able to clear it without too much troble
