Richard i'll not waffle on but my girlfriends 1.2 extreme was doing the same thing so after countless dealer visits and fob offs in Bristol she moves up to Newcastle and it started again. It had new throttle body, map sensor TDC sensor you name it it had it. But after watching her trying to beat a truck out at the roundabout and seeing her nearly wiped out cos it wanted to go to sleep on her i thought i would have a look at it myself. So i removed the air box on the top, removed all the sensors and cleaned them with compressed air and emery paper then i removed the throttle body and found that to be bit murky inside so cleaned it and operated by hand to check for movement. Then removed plug leads and cleaned plugs. Then I remeoved all the earth straps off the battery, and traced all earth straps (two next to battery, three on gearbox bell housing(two down by radiator and one under cooolant bowl near bulkhead) and then another just at rear of engine bay on drivers side, to the left of the brake fluid reservior. After making all these points all shiny and new i reconnected the battery and started up. ( Lights appeared everywhere) The emmission light and even the diesel glow plug light stayed on (its a blooody petrol engine !!!!) so disconnected the battery and reconnected after ten minutes. This cleared the problems and took it for a run to warm it up as this when the probelms began. Returned to work, left ticking over and it appeared to idle no problem at all. took it for 20 mile run after that and no loss of power. I must also say it was in Renault for three months to find the fault under warranty, no fault codes would appear so they just fobbed the missus off till she moved up here. Its been running like a dream for ages now so try this before replacing coil packs etc

fan relay is under the frame on the left by the fans. but most likely the fans themselves have gone bad check the fuse panel on top of the battery see if it is burned or blown fuse this is caused by the fans going from stop to high speed to many times. you will flat 40 or 50 amp flat blade fuse and both fans sorry for bad news

hi, this sounds like you have a bad earth at the rear lights, remove both rear light clusters and check for any signs of corrosion, give all connections a clean and a little tweek, this should cure your problem
