This is driving me crazy!


Hi Louis, if your car doesnt have the Cobra alarm then it wont have the bridge that I mentioned in the previous post ... in your case I'd have a check at all the ground straps on the car, esp. the one in the engine bay from the battery to the body ... also check the strap from the fusebox as this problem really sounds like a poor earth somewhere ...

Has the car had any accident damage? ... if so thats the first place to check for the security of the ground straps if any ... sorry I cant be more specific, its really a question of working through them and checking they are tight and not showing signs of corrosion.

The last thing is the central locking is controlled by the multi timer unit under the dash at the side of the fusebox ... I dont know how to check it except to make sure all the connectors are pushed home and secure ... I'm sure you need the Renault CLIP tool to check it, so thats a visit to a dealer unless you know an independant that is capable.

Hope it helps

Why is it the older I get .... the better I think I was ?
