Sorry I don't have the wiring diagram for that model but what makes you think the wiring to the coil ring is damaged. In my experience I have never heard if failure in this area unless it has been damaged or monkeyed around with. You may have to bite the bullet and get it to a renault agent as the immobilser is programed to each individual car and needs to be programmed to suit.
P.S. - has anyone tried to steal the car or tried to modify the electrics, etc.
Thanks for the reply
I have bitten the bullet and itis booked in to my local main dealer for a full diagnostic check on the 17th March.
gives me over a week to save !
