Angry Back Box fault

Hi wonder if anyone can help??
i have had the same problem as others my coil light has been coming on at slow speeds and sometimes cutting out. if i put my foot down the oil light will go off.

i have found the black box and opened it and all the black coating has worn away, my friend gave the wires a shake and now the coil light is permanently on the dashboard where as before it was give and take when t would come on. the light will not now go off.

it would indicate that the fault is them wires and now the light on all the time maybe it has snapped or come loose?

is it best to get all of the wires replaced etc

any help is is welcome

I also have a 2002 Clio, compared to mine you have only lost the top cover, I don't think the right connector has a box cover ? You can't really tighten it up with out te top cover but even then its not very effective - a poorly designed and unnecessary component if you ask me. Also there is no easy way to remove the bottem half shown in your photo. I would tape up the broken insulation on the wires and leave well alone, you don't need the box top half.

I have the same problem with my clio. My clio started perfect when engine is cold, but if i stop at a junction after about 20 mins of driving then my car will start to rev a few times on its own, then it cuts out. The engine management light flashes when this happens but the code doesnt store before when i start to engine back up the light dissapears.

Really had enough of this problem now, put me off of buying another renault again. Need to get this problem sorted some how. I have changed the TDC sensor and still have the problem.

Anyone got any advice? I have read about this problem on various forums and alot of people seem to have the problem.

The black box was already removed when i checked it and the wire have already been taped up. I took this tape off and checked the wires and they all seem ok. So taped it back up.

Help and advice would be much appreciated.

stop somewhere start, hot or cold same thing happens, throttle body, wire harness, who knows, I put it down to being a RENAULT !!!!
From the symtoms I would suggest throttle body .

You can take it out (bit tricky, have to remove inlet manifold) and clean it with carb cleaner. It cured mine.

Wow, I just joined this forum today because my mum has this problem with her Y reg 1.2 Clio II
the dealer told her that it needs a new wiring loom

i can't believe it's so common and that they just try and rinse everyone who has it - can you say recall?

anyway I'm off to have a look at it now, wish me luck.

I just thought I'd post in here to say thanks for the info, great forum, and sorry for the non-informative first post.
