Renault espace 98 model 2.2 turbo diesel. immobiliser light is solid red and will turn over but not start...help please
My guess is the problem either lies in the wiring between the decoder and the fuel solenoid ,the solenoid itself or the decoder. I would start by checking the connection blocks under the decode then do a safe continuity test from the said plug to just infront of the fuel solenoid, with the decoder and solenoid disconnected. You can't test the fuel solenoid wiring without an osiliscope??? Or the right diagnostic tool, a trusted Renault electrical engineer has the right kit to test though. You could try taking the solenoid out and visually testing it or taking or sending it to a Renault specialist? I don't joy the price of one, so it night be cheaper to just replace it anyway? It's not an easy job though for the uninitiated! If all that doesn't solve it then it's the decoder box I would reckon with that immo configutheration, on constant! If you need a decoder then if you don't want a heavy bill then it's a trip to the scrap yard for two keys, ring, door lock, decoder, brain and barrel! The other route is pay the Renault guys to run a diagnostic service only. I hope this helps you still? Different configurations of unusual immo light are tell tales to different faults and not the same on different renaults! Sorry mate if you were expecting an easy fix. Pete.
