Question about 2000 Renault 181
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.

Roy was right!! Pull out then plug in the TDC sensor male plug a few times and vroom!! The car starts.... Must be dirt or contacts do not conduct electricity after time. You have to put your car radio code in to get it working as well. It working on my Scenic RX4 2001 model. By the way I had to replace the gearbox on this car at 100,000km's...........
