Re: Renault Clio 2003 - Engines - Loss of power and Warning Light

I have a 2001 1.2 16v clio expression, I have only had it for 3 months. The electrical fault warning light has just started coming on.. usually after I have been sat Idle for a while then when I go to pull off there is a loss of power, the revs will jump between almost zero and ten and then the engin cuts out, I can restart again but this still happens. This happened on Thursday night I didnt drive it to work on Friday and when I went out this morning it started fine...
I have been reading through the car manual and it suggests it an electrical fault or connected with the immobiliser... I cant afford to take it to the garage and my dad who would usually help has moved to wales so Im stuck.. any help or suggestions for things I could try myself ( im not a very car minded girl) would be very appreciated.
