Question about Cars & Trucks
Sometimes when I start the engine it is fine--other times I start the engine and it remains on tick-over with no throttle response from the pedal at all----it had this problem 5 or 6 years ago and Renault said all it was was an electrical connection---they pushed it together or maybe cleaned it (I don't know)they didn't charge me anything so it couldn't have taken more than a couple of minutes to fix ---2 days ago it started doing it again ---I was wondering which electrical connection I need to check out ?

This car won't start unless the gear is in the P position. Some times the sensor that tells the computer that the gear is in the P position doesn't make a good contact and the car won't start. Move the gear backwards and forwards until it makes a good contact and the car will start again.

If your mechanic replaced the fuel pump and hopefully the fuel filter there is a fuel pressure sensor that could be bad i would take the car to autozone aand have them hook up the diagnostic machine to it (this is free for you)
it will tell you exactly what sensor is causing this or if it is a relay that is going bad ok?
Hope this is very helpful for you
Best regards Michael .

Just had exactly the same problem with my Kangoo, the bolt had come loose on the bottom crank pulley and the alternator belt came off, unfortunately, as I have found out, this allows the cam belt pulley to move on the shaft and the timing will have slipped and this almost certainly causes damage to valves, pistons etc. I'm just about to strip mine down to find the damage.
Not good news but hope it helps to find the problem.

then i would replace whats called the hall effect sensor its that black plastic plate you see when you take dist cap off. just pull rotor and lift up the sensor.dist cap is what holds it on.also under the sensor will be a stamped sheet metal piece that looks like the top of a castle wall. make sure its not loose on the shaft.if it is then new dist will be needed

I have a Nissan Kubistar which I understand is the same vehicle as Renault Kangoo.
The key fob works perfectly well most of the time then everyone once and while, the key no longer unlocks the vehicle and then the indicators don't work. After some time, the key works again as do the indicators etc.
I have replaced the battery in the key fob but it doesn't seem to have made any difference.
