Re: Renault Clio 2003 - Engines - Loss of power and Warning Light

Hi all,

I had the same problem with my 2003 Dynamique Billabong. Lost all drive, car revved itself at 2000 revs & trickled down the road, warning lights for coil and emissions etc.

RAC man did a faults check, said it was receiving signals beyond the upper & lower limits from the throttle.

To cut a long story short, had the ECU replaced after being told it was faulty (it was not...) and problem still there. Then a Renault specialist advised replacing throttle body & engine wiring loom. Problem solved.

Sounds like it was the wiring loom after reading this thread, but also could have been throttle body if they get very dirty.

Expensive problem, though the chumps who told me to replace the ECU will be paying for most of it!

Hope everyone gets it sorted, pain in the behind. Do some research as I'm sure most garages make their best guess.
