Relay 21 on the UCH fuse box is the Starting Inhibition Relay.

It seems the UCH controls the activation of the starter using inputs from the card reader, the start button, the gearbox and clutch switches.

It seems the start drive comes from connector BE pin B3.

The manual states that ...

'Note:- certain vehicle failures originating in the Renault card reader, the clutch pedal or Neutral position sensors can modify engine starting. In this case, the starter motor is supplied by continuous pressure on the engine start push button'

I guess the starter solenoid will be built into the stater motor itself.

Currently in Eeeps's garage:
2011 Clio III dCi 88 Dynamique and 2016 CitroŽn Grand C4 Picasso Exclusive+ EAT6 2.0 BlueHDi
