Megane Suddenly Died / No Clutch

My friend just picked up her 'new' Megane from Motorhouse on Tuesday evening (1.9 dci 130) and today it's left her stranded with the kids!

I've done a quick search of the Magane forum (quick being the key word here so please bear with me as they're still stranded) and nothing similar has come up.

I'm not sure about the order of events as such, but basically, she says that the car cut out, the clutch pedal stuck to the floor, and the car won't restart.

The card (when you press the button) makes some clicking noise like it's trying to do something (not sure if she meant when locking / unlocking the car or trying to start it) but doesn't do anything else much. Oh, and it seems the ignitions lights etc are still on despite the card not being in the slot.

Any help /advise appreciated. Are there any known issues similar to this with these? Should she keep the car or ask for her money back (she p/x'd her car so its unlikely they'd want to give her the cash equivalent anyway).

Currently in TazzyK's garage:
Renault Clio 1.4 16v Privilege (2004), Renault Megane 1.5 dCi 106 Expression (2005), Volkswagon Passat 2.0 TDi S (2006), Alfa Romeo 159 2.4 JTDm QTronic Lusso (2008)
