It even locks and unlcoks after walking away in a car park. Two nights ago it did this constantly on a journey of 6 miles and then the burglar alarm went off - and would not stop. The battery had to be disconnected. I have taken it to the Renault dealer and they put a diagnostic thing on it and it says there is a fault - don't know where though. This time I rang up and they said unless the fault is evident at the time, no good. Today my son took it in whilst the locks were clicking on and off and it stoped whlst talking and then started up on its own accord. The guy had never seen anything like it! Short of spending a huge amount of money that might not solve anything has ANYONE GOT ANY IDEAS PLEEEEEASE. It sthe newest car I have ever had and the biggest pain in the.... Thank you Dianne
it could be the alarm that is at fault gareth.
