Hi Martyn and welcome to the forum
When you say the car would not fire up, did it turn over or did nothing happen when you pressed the button ?
Sounds very much to me like a battery problem. The electrics on Renaults dont like a flat / faulty battery and therefore do strange things.
I think the best thing to do would be to get the battery tested somehow. Are you in the RAC / AA etc ? They will test the battery for you and even replace it for a fee of course., if thats the problem.
Hope you get it sorted, let us know how you get on.
