    Icon10 auto problems on the megane

    after 2 weeks of head scratching the meganes problems turned out to be an earth , the large flat earth lead has 2 smaller ones that attach to the same bolt (i took every earth off and cleaned them and missed the broken one!!!) on the left hand side of the engine and ocasionally made contact causing the stop , start symptoms, it seems to be two short , and with the rocking of the engine when changing gear and starting over the years it fractured, several quotes from renault dealers varied from over 300 for a new e.c.u. ,to over a thousand s for a gearbox , it cost 15p for a crimped eye let and a 5in. length of wireto reroute to the bodywork..... thanks to those who replied , i hope this saves someone a bunch of money and a load of sleepless nights, cheers

    Good to see you got it sorted John. Once again the technicians go for the course of action thats going to cost you pounds with no result. Whenever you have electronic problems first course of action clean and check all terminals and reclean and check all earths its a basic first course of action for electronic diagnosis.
