The most likely cause is the crank shaft sensor (what some also call the TDC - 'top dead centre". Look up TDC or crank shaft sensor, and you will find videos about how to locate it. Go get it replaced immediately, and the chances are your car will run perfectly fine.
The fuel cut out switch is built into the airbag computer (ecu), as it is only required to operate in the event of an accident. The airbag computer is located under the centre console. It is more likely that the tdc sensor has a faulty connection or the camshaft sensor is faulty. If the fault persists after you have filled up with fuel the best thing to do is get a diagnostic test carried out on the injection system to check for any possible fault codes.
This could be a possibility of a bad connection to the engine speed sensor or in other terms flywheels sensor or TDC sensor located under the thermostat housing screwed to the gearbox by two bolts, when the problem occurs try playing around with the connector connected to the TDC sensor and then try to start it, renault has a new modified connector and TDC sensor on the market.
I hope this helps.
bit confused...the cranksensor will be on the gearbox housing the camsensor will be near the cams not the gearbox if the camsensor has packed up it wont start but if it packs up while driving the engine will run untill you stop it then it wont start,a cranksensor could cause the engine to stop at anytime if it fails..your problem could be the idle air control valve or a timing related issue..
