My guess is the problem either lies in the wiring between the decoder and the fuel solenoid ,the solenoid itself or the decoder. I would start by checking the connection blocks under the decode then do a safe continuity test from the said plug to just infront of the fuel solenoid, with the decoder and solenoid disconnected. You can't test the fuel solenoid wiring without an osiliscope??? Or the right diagnostic tool, a trusted Renault electrical engineer has the right kit to test though. You could try taking the solenoid out and visually testing it or taking or sending it to a Renault specialist? I don't joy the price of one, so it night be cheaper to just replace it anyway? It's not an easy job though for the uninitiated! If all that doesn't solve it then it's the decoder box I would reckon with that immo configutheration, on constant! If you need a decoder then if you don't want a heavy bill then it's a trip to the scrap yard for two keys, ring, door lock, decoder, brain and barrel! The other route is pay the Renault guys to run a diagnostic service only. I hope this helps you still? Different configurations of unusual immo light are tell tales to different faults and not the same on different renaults! Sorry mate if you were expecting an easy fix. Pete.

Espace wont satrt with starter motor but starts on a bump or easy start!


sounds like the dreaded renault immobiliser ,in which case its dealer only as software encrypted.whats happening is the immobiliser is stopping it from starting when key is in start position cranking but it will go with a bump as starter motor key position not activated .try a wire from battery to small connector on starter motor .if it starts which i think it will then you know what to do ...old fashioned way with a push button.but are you getting prepared to lay the golden egg ???just in case
