If you remove the IR unit from the head panel and dry it with a hairdryer it may work properly. Also dry the other switches as well as possible and seal them inside small plastic bags to stop any further ingress. Hopefully that should do it. There are some immobiliser links in the electronic section of the Clio FAQ if you need further info. May be worth a quick read of them 1st. Just click the link in my sig, good luck and post back if further help needed.

I have had the exact same problem with my Clio. Sounds to me that it is the alternator that is on its way out. This will be reflected by the little orange light that flashes on and off to say that the battery is not being charged as the prop shaft spins. I took mine in and just got a refurb alternator that cost me around 30 and it sorted the problem. As for the water leaking through the sunroof, thats because the older Clios like your do not have drain lines running through the A post like most cars do. I've takin all the seals out from around my sunroof and the best i can tell it has nothing to do with the seals, more of a design floor. Im going to try cure the problem with some silinine and WD40 around the sealing areas.
