This is my first post, so hello to all

I have had my clio 1.2 16v mk 3 Extreme for a short while and lately I have had some weird electrical problems in the last 2 weeks.....

1. One day the horn didnt work all day and then worked the next.

2. The electrical fault light lights up every now and then, and once when it was lit and the engine was running, the accelerator didnt respond when fully depressed!!

3. On another occasion when I turned the ignition on, all the lights lit up as usual but the engine didnt turn over/start. 10 minutes later I tried again (umteeenth time) then it started!!

I love my clio but Im really worried what the problem maybe or what this could cost me.

Please please could someone shed some light on this matter

welcome to the forum. The horn may have a bad earth. The Electrical incident light relates to the ECU picking up a fault in the engine and putting the engine into limp mode (revs are limited to prevent damage), the starting issue may be related to the immobiliser.
Im wondering if I have got a bit of a lemon. Ive heard that the ecu cover eats into the wires. Could you tell me where and whats best to check and repair
