Unhappy 52 reg clio 1.2 expression periodically won't start

Hi there

My Clio sometimes, with out any weather issues, just wont start. The engine wont evern turn over, just dead.

when i turn the key, the usual lights are lit, and i hear a quite whirl for 4 secs but thats it.

It has happened around 8 times now and i will probably turn the key tomorrow and it will work.

somebody suggested to me that it could be the immobalizer and that i should change the battery in the key but i cant even get the back off the key to get the battery (so that is another issue i have!). I personally dont think it is the battery cause the doors lock and unlock just fine everytime.

So how am i supposed to get the car fixed.
The only way to get the car to a garage is to drive it and then the problem is fixed until it goes wrong again.

I deeply regret getting involved with Clio's.

If someone has any suggestions, then please reply to this thread!

Many thanks -
