Had my Renault Clio for 6months with no problems. Yesterday morning the radio/CD player didnt come on when i started the ignition as usual. None of the buttons are working and there is no display.
Also, the clock and temp are working fine but the display wont switch off when the engine does - its been lit up continuously for over 24 hours.
This all occured when the temperatures suddenly dropped to below -5 celcius - is there a connection? Will it go back to normal when the temperature rises or do i need to change a fuse or something?
Its a known fault with the Clio - the first time this happened (last year) they just reset the software at the garage to fix it - they gave me a new radio today with updated software (apparently). The dealer said they were ordering a shed load of new units in because of the bad weather, It was all covered under the standard warranty.

should be a 14 character Serial Number beginning with RG or RN or PH or similar
(often found stamped in the metal casing ) and maybe a Security Number in the format of
TOA123 or TA123 or just A123 at the end of a barcode so please quote EVERYTHING
you can find
The code should be written in one of the renault books or on a seperate card in the renault service/warranty etc books case. If not, then you will have to call the selling dealer to ask if he has on record the code. Hope that helps
Hi All, the very same thing happened to me. Cold weather broke my radio and the display screen stayed on with the time and temperature but the radio wouldn't work. I rang Renault & they said I need to come in an get a new radio but I put it off. In the end the problem started affecting my battery and the car wouldn't start. But then when I jump started it, it also started the radio again perfectly. Problem solved!
Hope this helps. Good luck!

You have to use the Steering Wheel remote Control =========================================== Philips Renault Code Entry
Turn on the radio and the display will show 'CODE'
Use the steering controls for code entry.
Press the [ ¬] button then rotate the thumb wheel for the correct first digit Press the [ ¬] button then rotate the thumb wheel for the correct second digit Press the [ ¬] button then rotate the thumb wheel for the correct third digit Press the [¬ ] button then rotate the thumb wheel for the correct fourth digit
If the correct code is now shown on screen, press and hold the [ ¬] button for up to 10 seconds to store the code
to enter your code when the cd player displays error leave cd player switched on and after 20 mins or so i will display 0000 then you will be able to enter your code this happens when some 1 has entered the wrong code
