I have a renault clio that goes into limp mode when the petrol light comes on on the dashboard. it does 5mph What is the problem?


It is doing an automated fuel saver so you can get some petroleum and not run out. Keep it filled more than half so you don't hurt the I jesters or fuel filter.

I have a renault clio automatic, which i have jut bought. It is apt to get stuck into limp mode, and do 5mph, when the petol warning light comes on. What causes the problem?


Sounds like a fuel delivery problem if it is associated with the low fuel warning light.I wonder if it is fuel gauge isn't really relaying soon enough that you are low on fuel and by the time it does you are running on fumes.it could be a fuel filter that has water ingress or debris from an almost empty tank.who knows?First get the car checked at any garage for the diagnostic error codes that will be stored on the onboard ecu.
this is usually a free service.the limp mode episodes will be recorded by error codes which will pinpoint fuel issues, electrical issues etc.Otherwise you will be trying to go through a fix list that costs you time and money .

Renault clio fault finder


This may help show if you have a problem - it may even reset the light. With your ignition off, press in the button on the end of your wiper stalk(rt of steering wheel), still holding it pressed in, turn your ignition key but do not start the engine. All the dash lights should come on, a bleep/bell will sound every second, and your speed and revs dials will jump to different places in time with the sound. Press the stalk button once and the amount of fuel should be indicated in the mileage display area eg 25 L. Press it a second time and it will change - I don't know what this is but mine reads 0.0, a third time could be interesting as this indicates where you might have a fault - in one of 4 areas - . If no problem detected then simply four dashes viz - - - -, you might have - - E - for electrical; press it again and you go back to the amount of fuel. Lastly, if you press the mileage select button, this resets (I believe) the fault codes and might also reset your lamp. Everything goes back to normal. Now start your engine and see if the red light is there - turn it off again and repeat the procedure to see if anything has changed. Good luck!

hello ive got a problem my golf 1.4 16v petrol year 2000when it reaches 2700 revs it cuts out and restarts like I basicly turned the ignition off and on again althought no other elictrical part of the car goes off stationary or driving it makes no differenceif im driveing along at 2700 revs just before it cuts out and drop a gear it lets me go past 2700 thus i can wind my way throught the gears past 3000 revs
as soon as i slow down around 3000-2700 revs it cuts bk to doing the same on off on offthe radio-lights-windscreen wipers don't slow/shut off while this occurs and nor does anything elseoccasional when this random cutting out /restarting happens the oil light-pump stops working /light comes on and the rev counter stops working so i have to pull over and restart the car.its just passed a MOT with no faults and wonderfully for me the fault didn't happen that day ....ive changes plugs wires checked fuel pump-air pressure and i cant find anything
pls could you give me some hints etc of what might be the issue

Hi there,i have a c200 elegance 2005,i seem to be having problem after problem and my pride and joy is becoming a money pit!! well here goes,it wont rev past 3000 revs, i was told this would be the mass...


You must be having a check engine light or maintenance coming up on the dashboard, if yes the best way to start troubleshooting this problem is to run a diagnostic test on the vehicle.Also after changing the mass air flow meter did you reset the ECM ?If not then this is required after any repair you do.Hope this helps.

Acceleration problems, juddering on a 1.2 16v 2001 plate.


these cars are really acute with there problems and this such prob is usually caused by the air filter needing changing, and full service with plugs and leads doesnt usually go a miss. when was the last time it had new oil and plugs and leads and filters?
