Re: warning light on and car wont tick over
I think the best way to go is to put in a new battery, let the car idle for 10 minutes and then give it a good drive and see, sometimes due to low voltage to the copmputer, the latter may try to reset the parameters as soon as it detects constant voltage(when car is running) and this might cause the car to behave like this.
Give it a go and let us know how it worked for you.

put a radiator flush in the expansion bottle .to clean the core of both your radiator and your heater. core will have dirt or rust .run the car for about 20 miles.then drain it .refill with 50/50 mix of anti freeze.now heating on full leave the cap off .turn over the engine,on tick over.push in the rubber hose with finger and thumb to remove the air out the bottle.then refit the cap.
dont talk to me about these renaults ,pain of my life but iam a bit confussed here as to the warning lights because i would expect the warning lights to come on with the juddering ,then it picks up again this is caused by the sensors on the pedals under the dash ,(want to see my teashirt) but i dont remember the heater lights coming on at the same time ,you sure the timing belt hasnt broke ?? does it still run ??
Most likely to be a faulty resistor block, which has 3 resistors and a thermal fuse controlling fan speeds 1,2 and 3, maximum speed 4 by-passes the resister block. It may also be poor electrical connections to the resistor block caused by overheating. Renault ask for approximately £350 to carry out repairs, a replacement resistor block will cost £50. If you decide to carry out the repairs yourself, be advised that if you are not competent to carry out such work you, could cause electrical damage or worse an electrical fire.
