There is no default however if the wires break on the clutch pedal it is a very simple repair. The brake start has a diffrent system & is not liable to fail.

My scenic megane will start but only if clutch pedal is depressed (not brake pedal), and as soon as brake is applied when running, it stops. What is the matter with it?


Sounds like you have a standard transmission if it has a clutch.
Start requires the clutch to be pressed in for safety reasons.
If you have it in gear when you press the break the engine
will stall without your feathering the clutch. Sounds like you may not have learned how to drive a standard transmission car yet.
Otherwise there's a short between the clutch safty switch and the brake light circuit.

Car will not accelerate when gas pushed


Clutch plate and pressure plate seem to be too weak to pull the car. To test the clutch plate, park the car on flat surface. Pull the hand brake up, start the car, depress the foot brake pedal, depress the clutch pedal, put the car in 1st gear, press the gas pedal and leave the clutch pedal at once, while keeping the brake pedal depressed.
Follow one of the two following statements:
1. Engine does not shut down and remain start. (Clutch plate, pressure plate and clutch bearing defective - Replace all as a set)
2. Engine shuts down. (Clutch system is OK and does not require any repair).

I'D REPLACE THOSE SENSORS OR REPAIR THE WIRING WHICH EVER IS THE CAUSE. YOU NEED A LIVE DATA SCANNER TO DO THIS REPAIR MOST LIKELY. THAT MEANS THE DEALER.

Low power


if it revs a lot but doesn't actually speed up, that means the clutch is slipping. This can occur if transmission oil is LOW but also the clutch plate is a wearable item and does need replacing once worn out. Your actual transmission should be ok if this is all the problem is. The clutch is essentially what transfers the power from the engine to the transmission, through the use of the clutch pedal. the clutch is made up of a clutch disc, and a pressure plate, and a pilot bearing, more or less.

The clutch disc acts sort of like a brake pad, and sits in between the pressure plate and the flywheel. When you let off of the clutch pedal, the pressure plate contacts the clutch disc, and pushes it against the flywheel, locking the transmission and motor together, thus transferring engine power to the transmission.

When the clutch wears out, the clutch disc no longer has enough friction material to effectively 'lock' both together, and the full power can no longer be transferred, which is when the transmission slips. Eventually the car won't move if it isn't replaced.

In my opinion it'd be in your best interest to take it to your local dealer and have them check it out.

This is a common issue with any transmission of a car, and it is a fairly straightforward fix, however it may be somewhat pricey as it is a labor intensive job.

Check Injector on Renault Megane


You don't say if the car is misfiring, but that's what it sounds like to me, could be a possible ignition coil faulty are heads of the ignition coils Gray if so then probably yes, A way to diagnose the problem, unscrew all 4 bolts from the coils now start engine with the engine running slowly lift up the first coil if engine starts misfiring or stalls coil is ok, if not replace faulty coil check all coils in the same manner.

(You may have to lift up the engine cover to find the coils)
