The systems on the two cars is different.

The Clio 1's used an immobiliser that was activated by the key blip(which also works the central locking)

The Clio 2's have a transponder key which has a chip in it,which sends a signal to an aerial around the ignition barrel to switch off the immobiliser.

Bridlad,your problem is likely to be the key chip(have you got a spare you could try?),the aerial,or the wiring from the aerial to the ECU .

Jason T,your problem is either with the key signal or the reciever in the roof near the interior light.

Hope this helps.

I'd rather push my Alfa than drive a BMW....
