Question about 1986 Renault Sport
I have a 2000 reg clio 1.2, 3door and sometimes it wont start. When I insert the key and turn it twice (just before ignition) it wont fire if the red light is flashing light BUT if this is solid then it does?
To solve this problem I just leave it and keep checking but the wait is unknown, or bump starting. I drove 250miles and when I reached my dsestination I tried to start her up and nothing.
I have checked the battery terminals and all they are both tight and greased. Please help as HELP!!
Hi, if when you turn the key to start the car the engine dont turn over as if its trying to start then this indicates that you have a problem with your starter motor it is the selanoid on the starter starting to fail
Sometimes it will turn the engine over starting the car and other times it will do nothing and you might here a slight clocking noise coming from the starter motor.
If your battery is ok and holds the charge ie the lights are bright without the car running then this indicates that your battery is ok and that the starter needs replacing. Sometimes you can get away with giving the starter motor a few taps with a hammer this sometimes clears any muck inside the starter selonoid getting it working for a bit longer but eventually it wont work at all so its best ot get this done sooner rather that later.
Let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok
