I got in the other day and set off driving, it went fine in first gear but when i changed to second i had no drive going through and it was just reving up with the clutch pedal up fully. where will the problem most likel be? The clutch or gearbox? And where shall i start looking first??

Re: Renault clio problem
First check to see if the driveshafts are turning, they are the things that stick out either side of the gearbox. start engine put car in gear. and let the clutch up, if you have no drive, open the bonnet and see if the gearbox end of the driveshaft or the wheel end of the driveshaft is moving. if one or the other is (remember to look both sides of the gearbox 2 driveshafts) you have a driveshaft or hub fault. If all is well and nothing is loose or moving the problem is either clutch or internal to the gearbox. this will require removale of the gearbox. approx 5 hours labour remove and refit plus parts required on inspection.

clio can get problems with the dispacks fitted to the spark plugs. i would check them. the stop is to say something is wrong, if it don't get a signal or a voltage drop when something is turned on it turns off ecu functions. my friend had this model and had the same fault, replaced them and the fault went away. usually get a misfire when they on way out, but sometimes they just die.
I had a problem where my key fob did not lock or unlock the car, Renault Clio Dynamique, but the central locking button in the car did still work and engine turned over fine. Changed the key fob battery still nothing. Read online about disconnecting and reconnecting the car battery, (negative only) and hey presto it worked! All working fine now!
Earlier i posted a question requesting how to switch off the service light on my Renault Clio, i have found an answer to thios, as follows. How do you reset the service indicator light 2007 renault clio?
Turn on the ignition, but don't start the car. On the right stalk there is a toggle switch that hinges up and down, and is used for going through the different features of the display. When the display shows 'Service Due' press and hold the top part of this switch for 10 seconds until the dispaly resets and it shows 30,000km or whatever until next service.

all of the above is correct apart from pressing the toggle button. if you instead press the bottom toggle button for 10 seconds the display will start to flash. Keep button depressed and 5 seconds later the service counter will reset. I know this works as i have just done it myself, I hope this will help many others .
