Another piece of experience to throw in the pot.
2 years ago, I started having 2000rpm sticking problems with the associated electical fault light occuring. It was easily fixed by disconnecting the battery for a second. The problem got more and more frequent until recently when it became virtually permanent. The local garage cleaned the throttle body to no benefit. The Renault garage, after about an hour and a half work, advised it was almost certainly due to a throttle body fault. Other possibilities were fuel injection computer (very expensive). The new throttle body seems to have fixed the problem (2 weeks and no repeat) and cost about 250 for parts and labour for diagnosing and fixing the problem. Surprisingly reasonable for Renault!
