Clio 1.2 (2002) 16V Dynamique - Failing to start and cutting out

Hi All,

Me again!!

I wrote a posting on the site a little while ago about my car cutting out and being unable to start!

The same problem appears to have been popping up since.

The coil light (heart beat symbol) in orange appears and cuts the engine out when stationary and fails to start, and is only doing so if I'm lucky after a number of occasions.

A diagnostic revealed a problem with the wiring loom. The garage insisted that the security box to the rear of the vehicle (design fault) cuts throught he wire causing the problem above. But what it has done is only just started cutting through the outer black plastic and not the wire itself. It is an expensive problem ( around 400 ).

Does anyone please know the definative answer to this problem or a decent garage local to the Bedfordshire area?

A desperate cry for help

Thanks in advance
