Renault Clio dashboard and side light blow fuse??

I have a 1.2 16V 2001 Renault Clio

The rear left side light and also dashboard will not illuminate, they blow any fuse that is inserted into the fuse position for the rear left side light as soon as the lights are turned on.

This is clearly a short somewhere in the wiring, I have checked the bulb and light seems fine.

Can anyone suggest where I should look next? The dashboard is illuminated by LED's so surely they are fime??

Has anyone else ever encountered this problem?

Thanks

Steve

I found a solution to my problem on the Internet and it worked a treat

My problem was that the dashboard and both rear lights would not turn on, but the fuses were okay and nothing had been changed

It turns out that in the passenger footwell there are a few relays right in the footwell where a person would put their feet. At first it was suggested that you push your feet really hard against the front of the footwell to see if that helps, and it did, but the lights went out again later. So it was then suggested that you look for a loose relay box where the feet go (on the left hand side at the top of the footwell, nearish to the bonnet release catch). It turns out there are 2or3 relay boxes there. SImply push each one to ensure that it is correctly seated, and voila the lights work perfectly again.

A simple fix that costs nothing, saves a potentially costly visit to a garage, and can be undertaked without any tools are even needing to open the bonnet.

May not solve the problems of those blowing fuses etc, but certainly worked a treat for me

Just to agree with ClioNZ on the issue of dash board lights and rear lights not working: I did exactly what he suggested, and it turned out that it was one of the three connectors by the bonnet release that was giving the problem (on my car, it's a square shaped, black coloured "plug").

I just plugged it out and back in, and everything is back to normal.

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, I have a 2006 Renault Clio 1.2 16v. I have a problem with the electrics: the passenger side lights keep blowing the fuse, also the dash illumination does'nt light up. I understand this is a earth...


Most cars have standard earth points such as eyelets on the side of the motor and from the negetive lead on the battery to the body. Search google for a loom layout for your model and check the earth points If there fine try running a new earth from the problem accessorys to the body of your car hope I helped ;)

The car is due for a Service. Contact a Renault Dealer or other garage.

If you book a service using another garage, remember to ask if they are able to switch off the service light, otherwise you will have to pay Renault a charge just to switch it off as well as service costs.

Try pressing the D3 button on your gear shift - little button below the main one. D3 allows for quick acceleration, but the light also shows when the car is locked is gear ('limp home mode') due to another problem.
