i had similar probs with my 54 1.5 DCI and it turned out simply to be the battery. mine would discharge randomly, working for a few weeks, then one day, get in, and nothing.

i had AA check and they said battery seemed fine, and battery drain was fine, but 1 week later, it was same again. so i got a new battery, and been fine since

one snippet i got, was that it may have been a mistake by Renault. i heard a rumour that they fitted Petrol batteries by mistake to a bunch on 54 plated 1.5 dci's which meant the battery would have a short life span as it coped with starting a diesel

got mine from
