Question about 2000 Renault 181
Renault Clio 1.2 Petrol T reg I have been having this problem, on and off for a while now, when I break, the indicator lights stop working, first it was just the right side but then the left. Mechanics at a local garage have fixed it each time. Shortly after the last problem I have noticed things getting a lot worse though: The left indicator always turns off when I break. When I have my front windscreen wiper on low and I indicate and break, the back windscreen wiper goes on really fast, then stops when I have turned the indicator off. I think, from looking in reflections of other cars and windows etc. that when I am stationary with my footbreak on and I am indicating right, my left indicator at the front starts to glow dimly(not flash though), not sure if the rear one is doing the same though. I don't think my rear left hand light is working when my lights are on but we just checked the bulbs when they fixed it at the garage last so pretty sure they are fine. Does this sound like it would be an expensive trip to an Auto Electricians or something simple? Thanks for your help! Janet
It sounds as though the ground connection(s) to the rear lamps are suspect - this would seem a sensible place to begin along with ensuring the correct bulbs are fitted and the bulbholders and any internal lamp connections are in good order.
It is also worth checking the wires that pass from the body to the tailgate for internal breaks. It will be necessary to pull back the rubber boot.
If all is found good the trip to the auto electrician is likely...

If the timing belt has snapped then you will have caused major internal engine damage. Its not just a case of replacing the belt as its likely the pistons will have made contact with the valves and bent them in the process. You will need a qoute from a garage for the repair and potentially you are looking in excess of £1000. The only alternative to this is to source a suitable engine for exchange from a breakers.

SOURCE: renault clio bonnet wont open
Get a second person to pull bonnet catch and you push up and down on the bonnet whilst catch is being pulled. 1, cable possibly stretched, 2, look at bonnet catch under the coloum to see if wire is attached, 3, try and lie under car and look up the back of the bulkhead to see the catch and release it manually. Hope that helps.

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
