Clio Diesel not starting

Hi all,

New to this but after some help

My Clio 2001 1.5D Dynamic, has done 47000 serviced from new etc. Does not want to start

All dash lights come on as normal, immob light goes out after 3ish secs, then engine turns over, but does not start. Sometimes It sounds like I can hear a very faint beep ( is this telling me the immob is still on?)0I have also heard this beep sometimes when I first put the key in.

It had a few probs starting the other day but by using the key fob to lock the car it would start and also to unlock the car it could start.

If you have any ideas then please let me know.

Many thanks

Clio not starting

I tried a few things yesterday and its fine again now. I read somewhwere about putting key in and turning one click then leaving both doors open for 5mins then this resets the immobiliser, I also wiggled every cable I could find under the bonnet, and hey presto she started straight away.

So fingers crossed she'll be ok for a while and if not will try same again.

If anyone has any views on the 2 methods, then please let me know, I'm inclined to think I've got a dodgy connection somewhere. But stranger things have happened.
