There is an assortment of codes that on the face of things are only loosely connected, though it is unlikely when so many codes appear at once they wouldn't have a common cause and the possibility of an ECU problem should not be overlooked.

The trouble is the codes are not only mostly manufacturer specific, Renault don't help matters by making some of them model specific - different meanings depending on model.

You really need another code read and scan with dealer level diagnostic equipment where the model and vin can be entered and each code is displayed with the proper description of the related fault.

There are few faults that will stop an engine or prevent it starting, though the Renault immobiliser system is renown for suffering from amnesia and it would be wise to check it is being disarmed as well as carrying out some physical checks that would be usual in the case of a non-start.

Most European cars have an inertia switch and location details will be found in the vehicle handbook - or give the dealer a call.

If the door won't open from either side, there is a high possibility that there is a connection problem between the lock cylinder and the inside locks. Remove the door panel and see which moving piece is not connecting, it might just be a loose wire. Also lubricate the door and apply WD40 regularly.

Get a can of DW40. Spray it all over the cap and inside where the key goes, leave for 10 or 15 mins and then try and open it.

Good luck.

The colour smoke an engine produces gives a good idea of the fault: -
Black/dark grey smoke is partially burned fuel caused by the right amount of fuel being injected badly or by a small excess of fuel.

Blue/blue-grey smoke is burning engine oil.

White smoke is either steam (usually from coolant ingress) or massive amounts of unburned fuel. A few possible causes of the latter is strangled exhaust, one or more injectors stuck open or a damaged injector (broken nozzle).

If there is no coolant loss I suggest you remove the fuel injectors for testing.

I never worked on a Renault but I would check a parts store and see if they have a Neutral Safety Switch? If this happens to about any other kind of car that switch is bad. They are usually located on the side of the transmission where the linkage hits it.

I have the code for my car but cannot get the other code that is needed without paying for it.

It completely depends what other underlying issues there are. But there are a few things you can check...

Is the steering wheel shaking as well? If so it could be a wheel balancing issue or bearings, or something else steering related.

If the steering wheel isn't shaking it could be your engine mounts, lack of oil, worn bearings, problems with the driveshaft.

The Haynes manual for Renault Meganes are a good start, at the back of the book it has all of the fault finding things you can do. Almost all of what I have suggested will need to be checked by a good mechanic.
