I isolated the chip that was heat sensitive - funnel on hairdryer - frosty morning.
It was the Motorola 68k based microcontroller in the electronic dashboard.
Concluded that there was no chance of me doing a chip change.
Bought new display £470. On install it read in km (speedo and odometer), central locking did not work, nor did burglar alarm.
£75 and (probably 10mins on Clip later) everything works as it should.
Perhaps should have just booked it into Dealer at first signs of trouble?? The part that I paid £470 for - would have been manufactured for about £15. Good for Renault.
