Re: Clio 1.2 16v not revving past 2k

The warning light can come on many numerous reasons. If the warning ligh has illuminated and gone out the ECU will have stored a fault - it may be your code reader ain't fully renault compatible.
Renaults use a different protocol and some code readers insted of identifying what the fault code is just throw up a completely misleading fault code which can be misleading at best.

Does the engine idle smoothly with no signs of a misfire?

If the car has been lying up for some time I suggest you check all fuses and relays for signs of corrosion and damp.
