Question about 2003 Renault 181

Open Question

I have a 2003 Renault Clio 1.2 dynamique 16-valve. Occasionally the car will not start. Put key in ignition, turn it and nothing happens other than all the lights on the panel come on. The car seems immobilised and is absolutely dead. Leave the car for several hours, try again and it will start as normal. Totally intermittent fault but really inconvenient when trying to return home from work, shopping, etc. Have taken car to dealer for diagnostics check. Cost £46 to be told no problem identified. Please help. Regards, Beverley

SOURCE: 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??!!

How can I get the engine to start


First check the connection unhook both and reattach. Then if that doesn't work check fuse to starter. If still no power. Check the ignition switch to see if it has power or needs replacing

Hi Lesley,
on the Renault clio there is a safety button which is located on the left side inner wing close to the fire wall. Press it to become ready to start. Probably it is the fault

Central locking wiring clio


I had a problem where my key fob did not lock or unlock the car, Renault Clio Dynamique, but the central locking button in the car did still work and engine turned over fine. Changed the key fob battery still nothing. Read online about disconnecting and reconnecting the car battery, (negative only) and hey presto it worked! All working fine now!

Hi, We have a renault megane dynamique cabriolet. The distributor belt went recently so we replaced the engine for a used renault megane dynamique hard top. Worked fine to begin with, then suddenly one day...


To check to see if the immobiliser is causing the car not to start there is a small red LED in the centre of the instrument panel normally with the Car locked the LED light should be flashing everyone second this is normal behaviour, Now with the key in the ignition and ignition on normally the led light will go out giving the immobiliser authorisation to start if in this procedure the LED light is flashing rapidly then there is a problem with most likely the key if you have a second key I suggest you test it,

renault ??? well known for electrical problems ,right try this first ,use key with the remote and lock and unlock the doors three times slowly then within 15 secs jump in and try to start ,if that doesnt work then try it with the spare key manually.Now if that doesnt work then call renault assistancia becuase these cars are a mechanics worst nightmare with the chipped key and immobilisor system
