My Renault Scenic starts up sometimes and cuts out straight away and won't run,but if you put left foot on foot brake and the right foot on the accelerator it fires and runs OK.
Hi I think the fact that the car sometimes starts when clutch and accelerator is pressed is a bit of a coincidence. You will probably find that it is the "Crank Sensor" that is causing the problem. The end of the sensor is magnestic and it collects lal sort of rubbish on it which send a wrong signal (or no signal at all) to the engine computer (ECU). The senor is located on the top of the gearbox bell housing where the gearbox meets the engine. If you push the pipework to one side and peer into the engine bay, At the very top of the gearbox to engine jpoint, you wil see two bolts going through a horseshoe shaped bracket (I think they are about 10mm blts. Simply remove the two bolts and lift the sensor out. Clean the end of the sensor (the metal tip which would be downwards when fitted). Refit and hopefully your problem should be solved. It could be that the sensor is no longer serviceable and a replacement is about £25. This is generally the cause of a lot of starting problems on all F9Q renault engines. Time to complete - about 20 minutes, only one spanner/socket needed, no mechanical experience necessary Hope that helps. Steve H from Cornwall

My steering gets stiff when I start it and says steering fault........ After driving a while the problem goes away and the steering works again
Hi Hannes I have checked on Autodata and the manufacturers have noted a fault which relates to the front suspension upper mountings. Autodata states that the mount becomes tight and requires renewal, also states that at times it could cause a squeak or squeel or clunk when turned. Steve H from Cornwall

I have a Renault Grand scenic 2005 petrol 2.0. My model was not listed in the selection boxes supplied. I have a problem of low battery and stop sign flashing up on certain speeds. Three speeds so far, one at 64, 90 and 109 km/h. There are no faults recorded in the logs. Renault South Africa and Renault Wonderboom have had the car for 4 weeks and they gave up. They replaced many components and price tag was large. Now I sit with a fault and I do not know if it is serious or not. The alternator have been checked, battery was replaced. Before this fault started, the scenic did have a problem of losing power while driving, cam was replaced and catalyst was removed. Power is moderate. Please help?

I have a Scenic 2003 1.6 16v. It was going fine then suddenly when pulling away at a stop it lost power completely and the revs climbed it did this in all gears it accelerates fine and as soon as you change gears it loses power. If it stalls it struggles to start almost as if no petrol is going through.
