Hallo
1.5 or 1.9 dci does not engage glow plugs until -4?C or below. so, check if fuel does not drain (in the morning). or if batery is week. try start with cabels (jump start) and see if start sooner.
another thong is if EGR valve always stays open (stick)
hope it helps

How can I start my Renault scenic 1.9dci?


Welcome to French cars. I have a 2003 Clio 1.9dci that has all the lights but wont start!! My fuse box under the bonnet was badly corroded, relays as well. Try there? There is a glow plug relay, don't assume the relay is OK. Get someone to turn the key on and meter test the wire to a glow plug to check there's power.

My diesel engine is noisy in my megane scenic are they normally like this and does take a bit of time to start but have put new glow plugs in it is the rt dt 1.9 diesel


Diesels are usually noisy. If they are noisier than usual it may be related to the starting issues you have encountered. This could be related to the fuel being injected to the system. Fuel may not be injected at the correct time in which case you may need to check your timing. Another is the fuel pressure. Other than the glow plugs that has been replaced check the glow plug relay. It is usually found at the top of the engine.

My 2003 Renault Megane Scenic 1.9dci expression won't start


The funny sound you mentioned must be identified, could it be the starter trying badly to turn. Here the fault of your battery drain is that the glow plugs take a lot of current and it must NOT come ON when the starter motor runs. Hence the fault could be your GLOW plug relay unit with the auto cut off timer that is faulty. If you keep draining the battery to a lower threshold level , there is every possiblity that the battery life will be lowered . I hope the present battery rating is the recommended Amp/hr rating to give the extra run for the morning start. Next area of suspicion is the starter motor itself , it could have a bad commutator or a bush. It will be good to have a clean up and service. Finally check for excessive drain on your battery with a current check in series for the drain current when the switch if off. If the current exceeds the limit disconnect each circuit to confirm. hope this advice helps. good day

Scenic megane 4 yr old, 13K miles, just had service,


Hi
faulty spark plugs is that the garage/dealer/mechanic said to you ?

Sounds like to me a ignition coil, and your car has 4 so this could possibly mean in the future more visits to the garage, to be sure I can suggest taking off the top engine cover and see if you have 4 grey ignition coils, manufactures name SAGEM, also now factory replaces with black coils.

Renault Megane 1.9 diesel has a message on the dash board saying injection fault. Is it safe to continue to drive the car?


Only if you don't mind the injector coming apart and damaging the engine. it could cost you a couple thousand if it fails while you are driving it. This light is your first and last warning before you may have catastrophic engine failure or engine fire. Up to you what you should do but would say you should have it checked by a mechanic, a simple injector pressure test could save your car.

Renault megane scenic 1.9 dt r reg 1997 cold start problems


This being a diesel, lack of compression is your worst enemy. These symptoms sound like a blown head gasket. Check your coolant for signs of oil, and check your oil for signs of coolant. (oil will be milky looking) Also indicative of a head gasket problem is an oil or coolant leak from the engine as well. If you see no evidence of the above, have a compression test done, and it should show up.

R reg Megane Scenic non start


Hi

Well, no noid signal and no spark says to me that the crank sensor is at fault.

Does the check engine light come on when you turn on the igntion? If not then the ECU is not waking up.
