Hi, you say 2001, is it the old shape or the face lifted one,if the earlier one then the keys do play up and you could get a new transponder chip copied and it should fix fault,what is problem with car.

Thanks Martink,

I don't know which face but I assume its the new one.

I used to have a clio in uk for 11 years and I live here part time and my previous clio didnt have an immobiliser but had central locking and lights flashing SO I believe that the immobiliser is an add on!

My problem is that I can open the car doors and click lights on [so key would seem to be working] BUT last weekend I could not get the damn cars immobiliser to recognise the key code so car wouldn't start.

I kept trying, the car battery then discharged its power.

On Monday, after weekend I had to buy cables.
Went to local Renault on Monday.

They said bring it in for us to check key/immobiliser etc

I said it was stranded due to flat battery!

Returned to car with friend.

Took key apart.

Tried again, light stopped flashing but due to flat battery car wouldn't start.

Jump started car and ignition worked, left car running.

Returned to Renault.

He said [visually] that I need new key?

It's 150 euros and will take 2 weeks.

My problem is this.

Why should the ignition need a code to let me start my car?

I am in the position now of NOT trusting what Renault say.

What's to stop new key from working?

you will probably find its the EU that insist the car has an immobiliser.

Even if you could by pass the immobiliser you would probably find the car still has starting problems.
Your best coarse of action would be to find and cure the fault.
In order for the forum to help we need to know the exact model. ( Clio 1.2 16v or 1.2 8v etc?)
What does the flashing light do on the dash when it won't start. Does the engine crank when it won't start?
