Hi,

The ticking sound is the solenoid striking the high current switch to engage the starter. If the starter motor will not crank the engine, it is possible that the battery is under charge or the starter motor would not turn. In some extreme cases, the reason that the starter motor will not turn is because the engine has seized. To determine whether it is the starter motor or the solenoid, you can try jumping the two big terminals of the solenoid to apply straight +12 to the starter motor. If it cranks, then it is the solenoid, if not then it would be the starter motor itself. Of course pls have the battery checked and/or fully charged.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Not starting.


Try asking the dealership if the TDC sensor needs replacing. The other issue is a loose wire connection on the solenoid....

get the crank sensor (TDC sensor) replaced. It is a very common problem on Renaults. Join us on Renault Forums. Cheers

Check your plugs again, make sure they aren't gunked up already or covered in oil or anything. Double check the spark gaps on them as well.
