Re: Renault Clio 2 - Electronics - Immobiliser problem.

An excellent post from JasSingh93!

I have been right through the flashing immobiliser & non-starting issue, tested everything I could get to on the car with no result.

Like Jas - and after reading his post - I reflowed the solder joints on the coding chip and also on the battery holder (whilst working I spotted a crack in one).

I've now gone from 1 dead key + 1 dodgy key to TWO fully working keys and no red flashing light

I have to agrees that it's a manufacturing weakness in the keys, which Renault is using to flog new ones at nearly 200 a time.
