OK your problem is the Alternator isent charging the battery How to check it is to charge battrty first and then start the engine and turn on the head lights Noe see how bright they are and with lights still on turn off the engine Do the lights stay the same or go dim .
Now with lights still on start engine again and watch the h/lights Do the brighten up if no then turn all off and your answer is the alternator needs either replacing or change over as the battery is a 12 volt and the alternator charges at 13.5 volts AC current but the car is DC but the alternator changes the voltage to DC automaticly.
Let me know how you get on with it Ron
try putting the key in the ignition and turning it to on then holding the unlock button for 30 seconds and then remove the key and try the remote if still no good go to your dealer and get them to reinishalise the system
Hi, if when you turn the key to start the car the engine dont turn over as if its trying to start then this indicates that you have a problem with your starter motor it is the selanoid on the starter starting to fail
Sometimes it will turn the engine over starting the car and other times it will do nothing and you might here a slight clocking noise coming from the starter motor.
If your battery is ok and holds the charge ie the lights are bright without the car running then this indicates that your battery is ok and that the starter needs replacing. Sometimes you can get away with giving the starter motor a few taps with a hammer this sometimes clears any muck inside the starter selonoid getting it working for a bit longer but eventually it wont work at all so its best ot get this done sooner rather that later.
Let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok
try my last solution posted, connectors on renault clios renouned for corroded electrical connection car guaranteed to start unless car needs replacement loom these also prone to fail very bad design of wiring connections they did a better job in the 70s
