Check the wire to the solinoid on the starter. That's the small wire, most often this is just a push on terminal. Clean it. and put a bit of lube to control rust. Fire it up! Frankster016

    hiya to find starter motor ? follow the + positive cable from battery it will be at the other end of cable which it will be attached to one of the solenoid terminals and another thinner cable is also attached with it this cable provides cars electrics also as prev comment the thin wire is connected to a seperate push on terminal on solenoid this wire is the key start wire which when start position is selected with key ? this wire becomes live and energizes the solenoid which then works starter hope this helps you?

    hello again please can you confirm that your problem is the starter will not turn engine over to start ?? but prior to this no problem starting engine when starter motor worked ? the reason i ask is on your initial post you just say electrical fault wont start ? the post i sent in answer was for info on falure to start ? as falure to start could have been a No of things ie turns over none starting fuel/ignition for example? but now assumethat it is a fault with starter not working? if this is the problem you have? and your battery is ok? or just in case have you tried jump leads from a doner car/battery? starter still not working on key? no need to have it put on diagnostic costing $$$/££££s in answer to your other question ? it will be ok to tow car if it is manual transmission and even try bump/tow start however if car has power steering be aware steering will be heavier untill engine starts BUT if auto transmission it is unwise towing as transmission may suffer it will be best to get engine running this will not be a serious problem and we will solve it for you (the impossible we can do! but miracles take a little longer ) ope this inspires you and would really appreciate any more info/history prior to this failure to start ? anything! best wishes and await your update ?

Error message "Steering Fault" : Renault Megane


  • This is a common fault with this vehicle. You have electric steering and it starts out not to bad and then becomes impossible to turn. It would be best to have yours refurnished as new ones are quite pricey.


  • Hope this helps.

Fuel injector cleaner may help your car after it gets started and you have fuel pressure established, but it won't help a car that won't start.the prob might be the starter or the battery
