Starter on 1999 megane

I cant find the starter on my 2.0 1999 renault megane. i'm not certain that is the problem. but i drove somewhere with some friends and then after about a hour or two we came back and my car wouldnt start. the lights came on. the ac fan, but when i went to turn the engine i heard this faint click/tap. i'm thinking it was the solenoid on the starter. it dont make any other sounds after that but everything else is on like in run mode, radio lights wipers etc. everything else works. the engine dont even try and turn over. but i am able to get it to start with a push start.

your problem sounds like a weak batery. fit jump leads and try again. the starter has to be taken out from underneath. its located behind the engine block. the bolts are accesable from under the bonnet

SOURCE: my renault meganes orange engine light keeps flashing and my car

look on the brake pedal assembly and their is some sensors that run off the throttle and brake and clutch,could be these are playing.But it is a renault with encrypted software so evan if you can get fault codes read they dont always show the right fault codes ,this is deliberate ploy to create work for the dealers.Trust me on this one

SOURCE: My renault megane automatic is stuck in reverse and won't start

Hi all,
I have a 2002 Renault Megane 1.6 Convertible and experienced exactly the same fault. Needed a team effort but we found a very easy quick fix to this problem. If you take the plastic cover off from under the gear shifter, you will notice a release button covered by a rubber cover. Pressing this release button allows the gear shifter to move from its locked/jammed position. (This is not the fix but it helps with the fix).
If you are fortunate enough to have a 2nd person available, have them poke their head under the bonnet to watch the Gearbox cable move....while you are shifting the gear shifter inside the vehicle. Your partner will see that a cable with a plastic locking device (right hand side of the engine cover) has popped off the shifter for the transmission. Move the shifter until you can physically put the plastic locking device back on the shifter mechanism and your all good to go. No need for that new gearbox that you might have been quoted on!! An easy fix that I am surprised no mechanically minded professional/body in the world has volunteered the solution to. I wonder why????

Good luck!
