Two possibilities spring to mind:

1) They've been complete muppets, haven't read the Parrot installation kit and haven't realised that the ignition and permanent live feeds have to be swapped around on the Parrot to account for the non-standard wiring that Renault uses.

2) There is no ignition live feed to the stereo, which is actually sensing the ignition state via a digital signal on the CAN-bus (this is the 'multiplex' bit of which they speak.) This could be a problem.

Option 1 would be easy to fix - just follow Parrot's instructions for a 'reverse polarity' (as they incorrectly call it) installation.

Option 2 is trickier, though I'd have thought you could cobble something together using a voltage sensing relay, such as the ones that are used for caravan electrics. That would make sure that the Parrot kit only functioned when the engine was running.
