    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.

When I drive over 50 mph and stop, I get messages 'engine system default' and 'transmission system default'. The car slows down, but does not completely die out. I turn it off and am amble to restar


Sounds like you have lost overdrive. Most cars go into to limp mode with engine and transmission problems. Limp mode is reduced engine power and the transmission only shifts to certain gears. Keeps people from totally destroying the drive train.

What makes the reduced power light come on?


the "brain" of the car has detected a problem and is reducing the power available (limp home mode), get it to a garage and have them scan the odb2 data (or get a odb2 scanner and do it yourself. it will provide a fault code) the fault code will tell why it went to reduced power mode (limp home)

What is a limp mode


limp mode is when the ECM reduces power in the engine to prevent damage to the engine and gear box. It allows you to get the car to a position of safety to check items like oil and coolant levels and temperature .Run fault codes to find the cause of the limp mode

When I accelerate hard to pass my check engine light comes on and the vehicle goes into limp home mode.


Get the vehicle looked at by a garage. The reason it goes into limp home mode is to protect the engine from further damage. The reason the check engine light comes on is because the engine needs checking with some urgency.

Glowplug light


Hi ,
You need to have the fault codes read,this will point you in the right direction,the revs die as it is going into limp home mode to protect itself,by turning the ignition off and then on you reset the ecu untill it detects the fault again.

Mondeo diesal 2002, glow plug light


Hi

The glow plug coming on on the Diesel Mondeo is an engine management fault indicator. The car goes into "limp mode" when this happens or in other words safety mode is triggered. This explains your loss of power.

To find the cause of this light coming on - the car will have to go on an OBD scanner at a service shop which will read the codes stored in the cars computer and give you an answer as to what is causing the fault to show.

Hope this helps - please remember to rate my answer as ratings are important to me as an expert on the site. Thank You.

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??!!
