have a '98 Clio Grande RN 1.2 that has me scratching my head, it drove perfectly after it's last service 3 months ago but last week suddenly went dead and wouldn't turn over when I tried to start, not even a click from under the bonnet.....AA was called and their chap diagnosed a faulty starter motor being the cause so a new one was purchased and being an easy swapover I installed it myself but still nothing doing when the ignition key is turned, I've checked the battery and that's ok the lights stay on etc, have tried jump leads but no joy, checked new starter out of the car and that's fine,
can anyone offer advice on what to do next?

What actually went dead? no engine, lights, heater, wipers etc ? Did the car cut-out when you was driving or did it just refuse to start one day?

Hi check the gearbox to body earth lead on the passenger front inner wing area.Access from underneath the car.
well that proves the AA can be wrong at times! I took Meganeman's advice and bought a replacement earth lead for £5.50 from Halfords and hooked it up....she fired up straightaway,

many thanks Meganeman
