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 .
hi there i have a renault clio 57 plate 1.6 auto. it keeps going into safe mode on the gearbox intermitantly. i have read auto trans fault codes which are df241 df240 df242 df243 and df231 which relate too abs sensors.have you any ideas thanks
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.
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??!!
