Re: Renault Clio 2 - Loose Wiring Loom Cover Cutting Into ECU Loom*FIXED*

Massive thanks to LOUIS CHIRON for his very informative post.
I had the same fault where the electrical warning light came on and the car goes into limp mode. I thought it may have been a dud battery but after reading through the forum and finding this post I looked at the wires under the black box and sure enough they were worn due to the metal box being loose, I've managed a temp fis by using insualltion tape put the metal box back and tested the engine and sure enough no warning light comes on.
I'll do a more permanant fix shortly but felt I need to thank Louis and the renault forum posters in general for such brilliant help.

MASSIVE THANKS!! Happy new to one and all.!!

hi,
found this problem with 4 clios now.
the little box rubbed through the wires.
i just removed the box , repaired the loom wires.
job sorted. the only thing i would suggest is make a water proof type cover to just slip over the loom plug.
all cars i have mod'ed have been spot on.
hope this helps

Re: Renault Clio 2 - Loose Wiring Loom Cover Cutting Into ECU Loom*FIXED*

Hi there, First time poster long time reader!

I have been reading through this thread over the weekend and matched it to a smiliar fault I have been having on my Clio. I have a 1.2 16v 2001 clio which when starting (hot or cold) after a small amount of throttle the Engine managment and Wiring loom lights come on on the dash and the car begins to rev between 0-2500 revs then stalls. upon turning the engine back on the lights will re-appear and it will start revving up and down again unless I stick my foot on the accelerator at about 4000 revs for 30 seconds the light will go off and engine will be smooth as anything. Not so much fun when im in traffic as to be blunt. It is a right ball ache.

Now to the point in hand I believe this "crash box" may be the problem I am having aswell as causing other electrical faults. I located and began to remove the black box as alot of you guys mentioned but after 15-20 mins of spinning with a small allan key the mechanism became locked and unable to spin any further. So far I have broken 3 allan keys and a drill bit as well as bending many others. It simply will not spin any further and the lid is still stuck tight on it. I have tried re-screweing it the opposite way all the way to the start and trying again but still it reaches the point of no more spinning and as such im left pretty much where i started.

Has anyone else experienced a similar problem when trying to remove the box? and if so how did you overcome it?


My patience is rapidly dwindling and am considering using a sledge hammer. Please help!

Can anyone confirm this is what it should / shouldn't look like and how to tighten it back up? Thanks. The car is a 2002 plate extreme.

does this apply to a 1999 16 auto as well many thanks
