Sounds like there is a dodgy earth or have you had a new stereo/electrical equipment fitted? could be that there is a fault in the electrics causing the power to drain, wouldnt say that it was the immobiliser though.

You need to check the alternator output. It sound as if the battery is discharging because there is not enough or no alternator output. If you have a voltmeter, check the voltage at the battery when it is running. It should be 13.5V-14.75V ideally but, at least 1.5V higher than a fully charged battery's standing voltage to charge. The battery light usually illuminates when the running voltage is low. I do not know what your 'stop' light is.

Hi Naill, I'm just guessing too. The TDC sensor is actually the crank shaft or camshaft sensor. They controls the ignition and injection timing. They can have become defective or contaminated with dirt. Try cleaning and see what happens. Sorry for not being of more help. Regards John

Your battery might have a bad connection. You need to check all the wires and terminals, make sure they are clean and the wires are ok. Have you noticed your dash lights going dim when you drive it? If so, it could be your alternator.

My battery wont keep its charge or charge properly ive tested the


Go to an auto parts store and buy a load tester for the battery. It doesn't cost much and sometimes if you bring the battery there they will test it for you with a load tester. It may have a dead cell which won't allow it to hold a charge or put out enough power. If you need a battery, some shops will install them for free. Good luck.

Are you letting the glow plugs get hot enough? Does it have glow plugs? How about the battery? Does it die down while all this is happening? Might want to think about using starting fluid on cold days. My tractor would fire on cold days and the battery would be half dead, but I always waited for the plugs to get hot enough.

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

HI, my renault clio radio and clock display are dead


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!

Renault clio 1.2 extreme problems


Hello, Gosh my 51 reg renault does exactly the same! Took it to a garage had the throttle body replaced with a genuine renault part but went again few months later - this time the car would not start - relays corroded. Had the throttle body replaced under warranty (Jan 08) but then it went again - this time told by renault that a Wiring loom needed replacing - £150 +VAT & labour. Last week went again - i'm beginning to think that this car will never be fixed. Renault wanted to charge £300 to fix but told them we had had all this work done previously and they came back and said it was a faulty connection. Tonight (05th Sept 08) as i type this my husband is waiting for the AA to tow him to renault as it has, yes you've guessed it happened again!!!!!!! This is rediculous, does no-one at renault know how to fix this??!!
