    I had a similar problem with my 51 plate 1.2 expresion. My car eventually stuck in safe mode whilst on the French autoroute in may this year. The local Renault dealers diagnosed a broken wire in the engine management wiring loom. They did a temporary solder repair so I could get it back to UK where I got it fixed at an independant garage. The wiring looom cost £110 plus VAT plus labour.

You may have been put literally offtrack. Check the crank sensor (TDC) and make sure this is working fine. I recommend getting it checked at an autorised service centre.

I have a renault clio automatic, which i have jut bought. It is apt to get stuck into limp mode, and do 5mph, when the petol warning light comes on. What causes the problem?


Sounds like a fuel delivery problem if it is associated with the low fuel warning light.I wonder if it is fuel gauge isn't really relaying soon enough that you are low on fuel and by the time it does you are running on fumes.it could be a fuel filter that has water ingress or debris from an almost empty tank.who knows?First get the car checked at any garage for the diagnostic error codes that will be stored on the onboard ecu.
this is usually a free service.the limp mode episodes will be recorded by error codes which will pinpoint fuel issues, electrical issues etc.Otherwise you will be trying to go through a fix list that costs you time and money .

Automatic transmission gearbox


unfortunately this could be one of a number of things, it will require diagnosing by either your renault garage or an autogearbox specialist. sorry. i have replaced many a hydraulic valve unit or the EVM valve for the DP0 automatic gearbox for internal pressure faults

Try pressing the D3 button on your gear shift - little button below the main one. D3 allows for quick acceleration, but the light also shows when the car is locked is gear ('limp home mode') due to another problem.

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??!!
