I have a Renault Clio 53 plate 1.2 16v Extreme 5 door.

I have the airbag and service light come on, i also have the fog light on the dash come on when indicating or reversing!

Things i have done

checked and cleaned plugs under passenger and drivers seat, wiring looks fine, checked both sill crash protectors, plugged in an obd scanner and i have no errors!

Fog light bulb works fine

Any help would be greatly appreciated

Hi

Ok

the air bag and serv light ore one issue (1)

the fog light is a separate issue. (2)

(1) Do you have a scratchy noise when turning the steering wheel from lock to lock ?

(2) the rear light units are earthing out via the fog light, remove each light cluster and unclip the wiring harness and give the connections both sides inside a clean, particularly any that appear to have corrosion. Use a piece of emery cloth or thin sand paper etc (Don't use any thing metallic like a file or you could short circuit something by accident) !

If its like a scratching noise the clock spring has gone and needs a new one there is also a guy on ebay who repairs them with a guarantee and a quick turnaround

Hi

you got there before me !

ok the rear lights

have found a photo I took for another 'client' with similar issues.

you need to clean the contacts and if you 'carefully' adjust the terminals indicated they will make a better contact.

As you will be needing something metal to do this either disconnect the battery or ensure ign off doors closed not locked
before venturing in there.

the best things I have found for cleaning out contacts like these are Emery Boards, either steal them from your wife, girlfriend, sister or mother, or buy yourself some, under a pseudonym of course

Passenger side light plug was slightly melted! cleaned up and plugged back in, drivers side light plug was dirty so did the same.

airbag and service light come on when i move the steering wheel while stationary, possible clock spring?

you didnt say whether the cleaning of the plugs fixed the rear light issue :wink2:

and if the fault appears when you move the steering wheel I am fairly sure it must be the clock spring, but someone with more knowledge than me may correct my assessment
