I think the best way to go is to put in a new battery, let the car idle for 10 minutes and then give it a good drive and see, sometimes due to low voltage to the copmputer, the latter may try to reset the parameters as soon as it detects constant voltage(when car is running) and this might cause the car to behave like this.
Give it a go and let us know how it worked for you.
Cheers.

My Renault Megane Scenic S reg heater is not working


Most likely to be a faulty resistor block, which has 3 resistors and a thermal fuse controlling fan speeds 1,2 and 3, maximum speed 4 by-passes the resister block. It may also be poor electrical connections to the resistor block caused by overheating. Renault ask for approximately £350 to carry out repairs, a replacement resistor block will cost £50. If you decide to carry out the repairs yourself, be advised that if you are not competent to carry out such work you, could cause electrical damage or worse an electrical fire.
