  4. 57 plate Clio 1.4 - Headlights come on automatically (at random)

    Hi guys, Hope you can help! A month or so my Clio's headlights started randomly coming on while the car was parked and engine off - several hours after use. They would stay on all night unless we spotted it, or else the battery was flat in the morning. I disabled 'auto lights' and replaced...
  5. Clio ABS light random ? ***Sorted***

    Hi my daughter has a 53 reg Clio 1.2 16v, and she tells me that the ABS light comes on every now and again, only for a few seconds or so.

    Heating & cooling
    I seemed to have similar symptoms to other owners. Blower sometimes works and on all 4 speeds, then other days nothing. Drivers side of the car doesn't seem to run water away under the car so probably blocked drainage, brief exploration on this looks like the underneath of the scuttle? has...
