Question about 2000 Renault 181

1 Answer

My Missus has a 2000 renault clio automatic. Had a starting issue cold mornings are worse, changed plugs motor started 1st time for 2 days but then we had a cold snap and starting was again an issue. I have also noticed when reversing if I full lock steering the revs drop very low sometimes cutting out. Hope you can help, I was going to change the Coolant Temp Sensor next as this seems cheapest option.

How can I start my Renault scenic 1.9dci?


Welcome to French cars. I have a 2003 Clio 1.9dci that has all the lights but wont start!! My fuse box under the bonnet was badly corroded, relays as well. Try there? There is a glow plug relay, don't assume the relay is OK. Get someone to turn the key on and meter test the wire to a glow plug to check there's power.

hard starting in cold weather for a diesel is an indication of failed glo-plugs. IF it start ok now then the light was telling you of the glo-plug problem. I would only change injectors as a very last resort as they are very expensive and may not be the fault any way as the easy start indicates no fault there.

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.

Hello. Renault Clio Grande Reg: X537DMW Recent service carried out to find ignition fault. New battery. Healthy key turn but does not fire up engine every time and problem getting more frequent. Mechanic...


hi... there are several reasons for this to happen.

1.Battery terminals loose or corroded.
2. Ignition components damp or damaged
3. Broken, loose or disconnected wiring in the ignition circuit.
4. Worn, faulty or incorrectly gapped spark plugs.
5. fuel injection system fault.
6. Major mechanical fault, e.g camshft drive.

Lots of questions first.

Does the starter motor engage when turning the key?????
Is the air filter in good condition?????
Do you have an immobiliser on the car???

Advice! albeit rather harsh! when attempting to start the car give the startermotor a good stern whack with a hammer! some times the starter jams and this and cause the aforementioned problem.

Hope this helps

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!
