Van turns on then shuts off? Sign In

Hi guys my Renault traffic 2016 diesel keeps turning off as soon as I start it.
When it first started I notice smoking coming from steering wheel gap.
Call road assistance and they said ignition switch. Mechanic checked but said something needed re soldering worked for 1 day then started Doing it again.
Key was then changed then worked for 2 days . Once again died again. Don't know what it could be assuming it's something electrical.
Any ideas?

Of course it's something electrical. There is smoke coming from the steering wheel.

We don't have this car here in the US so there isn't much we can tell you except have a professional look at it before it catches fire.


We offer help in answering questions, clarifying things or giving advice but we are not a substitute for an on-site inspection by a professional.
