Renault Clio II - Renault Clio 11 (yr 2000) wont start also......... - Staffiez

Hi
Please help, I've had no problems at all with our Clio until yesterday. I went to pick my son up, switched engine off and waited.

When he came out i pushed the unlock button but nothing happened, tried it a few times but still didn't work. I tried the key fob and that's not working altho it does light up on key. Nor is the inside light unless you switch it on manually, doesn't come on when door opens.

Went to start it and all it's doing is turning over, a couple of times it's tried starting but if you try the accelerator it just dies.

There is the electronics warning light on in dashboard but i think that goes on as you start it anyway. It's a box with a pointed line thro it and what looks like a loop the loop below

Has anyone got any ideas please? Really can't afford to get it towed and looked at by a garage.

Thank you

If you have a breakdown service with Homestart get them to come out. A mobile auto electrician visiting you, would be cheaper than a tow to a garage, perhaps.

Interface between the key and the immobiliser might be the issue. Daft as it might sound, it could just be a case of replacing the battery in the key fob.

Something similar happened on a car my father in law used to have and that cured it but don't take my word for it !
