Question Clio 172 immobiliser intermittent fault

Evenin' all,
No I'm not a plod, just a dad whose daughter has a Clio 172Sport with intermittent immobiliser problems.
Occasionally, it will turn over briefly but not start, The light on the dash seems to point to an immobiliser fault. It has been observed that accidentally knocking the relay box under the bonnet cured the problem at least once, but sometimes it just clears itself.
My question is-could the relay contacts be dirty, or is there another common fault (unknown to me) that I should look at first before diving into relays?
Hope someone can help!
