Question about Renault Le Car
You need to do or have done a pressure test,
fuel pressure test, these high pressure diesels need a certain amount
of pressure to even open the injectors, from memory I think its about
120bar at the injectors... if that figure is not reached, for whatever
reason it will not start on the key.
Too whilst having that done you could do with having a diagnostic test done along with Live Data to see whats going on with the systems. Live data can tell you alot. Also, you can see the pump speed and if thats not right it wont start on the key either. You don't mention if you have had any warn lights on the dash at all. but if you have had an engine manaagement or Ser and the Glow light whilst running, you do need the diagnostic doing.
You could have a problem with the glow plugs but that is easily checked - check to see if you have the light come on on the dash for the correct period of time etc - and then check with a meter to see if you are actually getting power to the plugs for the set time, and the right voltage... I take it that you have already renewed the plugs.
You need to work through the above to get to the bottom of this but start with the glow plugs (test) thats the easiest and quickest.
