Renault Clio diamonique 04. I`ve had all jobs done, car`s running great. Started it up and all the control lights on the dashboard lit up extra bright, when I drove it no speedo, seemed to be hardly any power and the engine made an awful noise. I stopped the car and called AA breakdown. He listened to it, shone a torch around the engine and said your engine`s gone, going to cost you lotta money to fix. He towed me home. To be honest the impression I got was it`s a secondhand car, you know it's broken, run it X miles and call us out, we fix it NOT this time, that's the impression I got. Do I get someone to take a look at the engine first or belive Torchy AA? I don't want to scrap it as I know everything is ok with the rest of the car.

hi my clio is having problems with lights when i put my indicator on the hazards flash, when i push the break my hazard lights also come on, and when i press the hazard button all of my lights flash. why would this start to happen when i have never had this problem before? and no work has been done with or around and of my lights recently.

Answers

I had this kind of problem with my Clio Grande when my front headlight bulb was on its way out. The indicator for that side was clicking out of time unless I put the fog on. When I went to buy an indicator bulb at Halfords they tried to say it was a relay circuit or something like that. When the bulb didn`t work anymore I realised what it was and replacing the bulb fixed the problem. Then when my rear indicator bulb was fading it would set off the rear wiper when indicating. Replaced that bulb and fixed the problem. faye from West Midlands

This is for an October 2004 Clio. The trip computer just shows four bars flashing for the fuel related items - amount used since last reset, average consumption and range. It has had some (garage) rewiring between the EMU and the high pressure fuel pump and the battery has been fully discharged after the lights were left on overnight. Is there a unit that handles the fuel usage and where would I need to start looking for it? Thanks Chris

Renault Clio

Hi all, recently I was driving my 2001 3dr 1.2L Renault Clio. I came to a stop and when I tried to go into reverse I couldn't. The gear shift would not budge. I couldn't go into neutral either. After having some friends help be push the car we were able to force the gear shift lose but then it became abnormally lose and still wouldn't shift the gears. The car us stuck in first gear and won't accelerate past about 25km without running hot. I looked under the car and I can see the linkage rod that I believe goes from the gear shifter to the transmission. It is completely bent and hanging. The mechanic I went to is telling me its the transmission but I have been told that the linkage is my problem. I honestly have no clue. Anyone have any idea what is going on or have had this problem before??

Answer this question

Emilio, Iraq

Renault Clio

Hi all. I have a 2006 Renault Clio 1.2 litre petrol car with 250,000kms on the clock. Over the last 12 months I have had the timing belt and clutch replaced, as well as the usual full service. Recently I started to notice a problem but it's not constant so when I go to my local garage, (like today to get some light bulbs changed and last week when I had a full service done), it doesn't tend to happen. The problem is as follows -when I initially start the car the revs stay up at 1500 to 2000 without the accelerator being touched. Sometimes, if I let it run idle after starting it up, it sort of coughs and splutters and then konks out. When I drive off sometimes, not always, on half-pressing the accelerator I lose power. The revs start to drop, it`s the same as not having the accelerator pressed down at all. To resolve it I have to push the accelerator further on. It used to be just past the half-point, but now I am having to put the accelerator to the floor (for the revs and acceleration to kick back in). This happens regardless of which gear I am in - bar reverse (I think).After driving for a while, it seems to self-resolve.Quite frustrating as no lights come on so they can't diagnose using the computer. Does anyone have any idea what may be happening? My clutch was just replaced and full service done with all filters being replaced. I have used petrol injector cleaners as well. Any help would be appreciated. Many thanks.

Answer this question

nathan, South Africa

Renault Clio

Hi, I really need some help or advice in regards to the issues I`m having with my Renault Clio 1.6 16v. I bought the car two weeks ago and it drove perfectly with no issues whatsoever. Then suddenly 4 days ago I started the car up and it will not respond to my acceleration and just does its own thing. I see a warning ligjt is on and the book says it`s a preheating/watering diesel light, discovered it`s called "into limp home mode" which cut out acceleration completely, the car revving at 2000rpm to 2100rpm. All I can do is clutch,brake and its.i jave read a lot of forums and spoke to quiteva couple of mechanics i personally think that Renault should protect their cars for water damage. My car leaks in from a place I can`t seem to find, all the floors are wet but nowhere else in the car. It`s driving me crazy. I think the water had got into parts that it should have not got into and this could be the cause of all my trouble. Diagnostics say change Throttle dodgy- I have cleaned it and put back and still it`s the same.Then some say it could be the coil packs as when I removed the wiring one by one, pull one out and the car wants to die out, the next two plugs didn`t do anything and the last one the car died out.I checked wiring, how do I check if the wiring is getting current and does it consist of negative wire only or should there be a positive one as well?These parts are expensive and no cash refunds. What would be the option to start with? Is there a way to test the parts on my car to see if they are working or not, for example can I check the throttle body wires are connected and fully functional? All these parts are hard to find but I can get them, but if I buy the throttle body, coil pack and have the loom rewired?

Answers

It`s a common problem for all Clios. The problem is that the ecu module does not pick up the throttle body sensor, the cause can be wiring or there is no contact on the plug. The coil park will only make the car misfire. You can check with a Renault mechanic for help karabo from South Africa

Your immobilizer is not responding. If there is a red light flashing when you put the ignition on, it means it did not read the key. You must get the key fixed or buy a new one and program it karabo from South Africa
