Re: Renault - Clio - Starting Problems - A solution???

A few months back our clio randomly failed to start. Neither key worked, the engine cranked but did not start up, was an intermittent problem. It seemed to be a key fault, immobilizer or barrel.
Trawled the net and found this solution:
Occasionally the immobilizer goes out of sync with the key.
Put key in, turn to ignition without cranking, leave for about 30 seconds.
Take key out lock door. Open door and turn start her up.
This works!
