Hi, i had all the fuses tested and they are working except theres one under the bonnet that has no power i forgot to check today which fuse it was, i shall check 2morrow.

Very strange as no1 can tell me whats up with my car.

This happened to me in the past, i had a T reg clio and one morning i went to start it and the same thing - nothing!!

However this was a different problem, but renault couldnt tell me what was wrong with it so i got rid of it and later found out that i was a sensor wire had come appart, i was very annoyed about that!!!!!

If your just getting a clicking,check the engine to body earths,the battery to body earths and the starter motor.

I'd rather push my Alfa than drive a BMW....

Hi Gemz and TidyClio,

I'm new here and also have a problem with my immobiliser (but not quite as drastic as yours!).

I was always under the impression that you should NEVER jump start these clio's as it would spike the ECU and fry it!
This could be your problem

Is this correct Tidyclio??

Hi Louis. Really you should not bump start the car down to that catalytic converters can be destroyed due to unburnt fuel reaching them. Jump starting can be done I myself have done it numerous times without any problems. When the cars are built at the factory they are often hooked up to a booster battery to get them going which is the ideal.

The immobiliser light can sometimes give away some clues to exactly what the problem is. With Gemz immobiliser light not coming on whatsoever that's what makes me think it's linked to the unit that controls the immobiliser the UCH .

In general though if you look on the internet or across any French car site you will find pages upon pages of immobiliser problems which is very poor really. With the technology available these days and the wealth of knowledge an immobiliser system should be made up which will stand up to the test of time in my opinion. Of course it's one of only a few things these days that for most is a dealer only job. Though maybe given this fact the motivation to make an immobiliser system that lasts isn't there. It would not be so bad if dealers were focused on good customer services but with most it's not the case.
