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.
Thanks for both your replys. I dont have a spare key unfortunatly.It has only done it once this week thankfully and its nothing as bad as Jason's.
I was thinking about investing in a fault code reader as they are only around 25 quid on ebay but 1)would it be likely to show a error code and 2) are they any good?!
Currently in bridlad's garage:
Clio 2001 grande
