Renault megane scenic 1.6 RT warning light

When the warning light is not on the car takes a while to start and when it does it chudders and cuts out! you have to either keep the revs up or get it to a least 3rd gear so the warning light s comes on. once that on the car runs fine...any ideas?

This exact problem on a megane coupe is caused by a small air pipe that connects to a 2 inch wide black box that is located under the bonnet near the windscreen on the passangers side. the zigzag light indicates an electrical fault (in this case lack of compression and will affect your revs) if you find this pipe and it has snapped off. the reason for this may be that your engien is lose and moves. grab the engien with 2 hands and see if you can wobble it with allot of play. if so your engien mountings need replaceing. you may also experiance juddering in low gears

That is the Renault equivalent of a "Service Vehicle Soon" light. (Not to be confused with "Service ENGINE soon") This means that there is a problem with the body or suspension control systems in the vehicle. The computer system must be scanned to find out the nature of the problem and begin diagnostics and/or estimate for repair.

it sounds like one of three things are happening
1.your battery has adead cell in it and does not have enough cracking amps

2. your alternater isn't charging your battery enough

3. your starter is worn out causing it to need more amps to turn over

You can go to your local auto parts store and have them test your battery and charging system usually for free. if the battery and charging system checks out then pull the starter off and have it tested.
