If its a Clio2 phase 1 then its likely to be the electronic speed sensor or the connector, do a search on the forums plenty of info and pics, it takes about 5/10 mins to change it, assuming the connector is OK, and the sender is approx £25 from Renault.

Try cleaning the connectors first as its often a build-up of verdigris on the connectors thats causing the problem, use a fibreglass pencil or similar to clean the connectors up or a good quality electronic contact cleaner, then spray with WD40 before reassembly.

Hope it helps

Why is it the older I get .... the better I think I was ?
Currently in Truckbusuk's garage:
Clio2 1.4RT Phase1(VF1BB0S) + Volvo XC90 SE Lux D5 Geartronic
