I'm guessing it's the 'Serv' light that's coming on - it's telling you that something needs attention, but you can still safely drive the car. There's usually a 'stop' light next to it that comes on in the event that you shouldn't drive the car, usually because you've left the handbrake on, but sometimes because of a more serious fault.

I'm guessing a 95 Automatic will have the 2.0 8v engine fitted with a conventional distributor ignition. If I'm right, then that at least rules out the dreaded TDC sensor.

Have these garages read the fault codes, and if so, have they used the genuine Renault diagnostic equipment? For the ECU warning light to trip, the ECU must be reporting something wrong, and it should store a code to assist in identifying the fault.
Currently in Horatio's garage:
2010 Laguna III Initiale.
