that was what i was thinking davess, i reckon it just may be a coincidence that it seems to start ok when the battery is dissconectet and reconnected.
also im not to sure if the immobiliser fix (by bridging the -pole and +lead) would actually work on a 1997 clio, it seems from the desciption to be immobilsers that use the keycard. Interested in trackdays??
Currently in martyboi's garage:
2.0 16v corsa redtop (project redNos) 0-60 in 5.2sec (soon to be turbo'd) and the renNOS has gone to the big scrapyard in the sky :crying: and theres not an AX!
