Now it sounds to me like a loose connection but im no electrician!

I have dropped it off at Renault Coulsdon for them to fix it and carry out an MOT as it is due. However they want to charge me 75 just to run a diagnostic test to tell me whats wrong with it!

Should i argue the payment?

Thanks in advance for your help!
Welcome to the world of Renault Ollie. 75 is about the rate for diagnostics at the stealers. Might be worth a try to get a discount on it.
