There is lots of people out there that think the problem is to do with a pressure switch. In a way they are right. As the transmission fluid gets old it's viscosity and properties change. It gets grippier and allows for fluctuations in the pressure in the gearbox.

The best thing to do before sending it to an automatic transmission specialist would be to give it an oil change

it needs 3.5 litres of Type-D transmission fluid. Do not use anything else contary to what you might hear will work. I had the same problem in mine where I could neither put my foot down or remove it from the accellerator pedal without the gearbox going into limp mode.

After the oil change the gearbox has been perfect. the oil only cost $34AUD for 5 litres. Drain all the oil and place 3.5 litres in the gear box.

There is a plug with a square hole that is the filler plug on top of the gear box.

On the bottom of the gearbox there is a filler plug and if you look closely there is a hex head behind that. To drain the gearbox you must undo the outer hex head which is the drain plug/fluid level tube.

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.
