It must be a common fault with clio's there are a number of people on here with the same problem including me. Been to 8 different garages and they cannot find whats wrong, cant this be bought up with watchdog as its not normal.

Called hubby and he said as new battery drive it for about an hour or so to make sure battery is fully charged, this done drove about 90 miles. Car was fine for another couple of days, then on Friday ready to go to antenatal appointment and it wouldn't start!! I get the dashboard lights on but no starting!! Today after reading some prev comments I tried again, however this time even the remote keys aren't working!! had to manually unlock the car and when the key goes in I get a weird noise but no starting, like a vibration noise. Does anyone have any idea's? Someone said that it's my starter motor, but wuld that effect my keys working too? Please Help!!
