Renault Clio - Starts only after disconnecting battery.
I was called to my Dads car (1997 Clio) because it would not start.
I looked at the usual things, loose wires, wet plugs, spark, etc.
I had no spark and no damp plugs which led me to think of the immobiliser not creating a spark or letting fuel through.
When I took the battery off to charge for approx 1 hour and putting it back on it started.
I thought that was it and was reset.
Going back to the car sometime later it would not start again.
Disconnect the battery and connect again and it will start.
What is the cause of this?
Thanks in advance.
