Hello...I'm having trouble with my renault clio 1.4 16v , when I'm driving at night and have my lights on,when I hit the brakes even my rear night time lights come on, it has even stopped switching the night time light on automatically. When I indicate to the right , the left side indicator goes on and doesn't flash , at the same time the rear indicator blinks simultaneously with the red night time lights ...Please do help ..should I maybe change all the fuses in the little panel on the left side of the dash , along with those in the engine bay ?

PETER GILBERT, Worcestershire

Renault Clio

Driver side door on my 2005 Clio sometimes used to give a loud click when being opened or closed, but recently has been doing that most times it is used. Everything appears to work as it should , but would like to get rid of the noise. Answers on a Forum suggest that rollers on the strap that controls opening positions may have lost lubricant and jammed, so several good bursts of WD 40 should gradually clear the problem. Do you agree with diagnosis----and cure ? Peter Gilbert

John H, Leicestershire

Renault Clio

Hi, I am looking after my son's clio because he's using a company car at the moment. I was starting it every few weeks with no problem and running it around the block. It then went flat on me so I tried charging it to no avail so I bought a new battery and I thought I had cured the problem but now it has been going flat every week,so I disconnect the negative terminal when not in use and reconnect to start it. So its not the battery. Something is draining it. Any suggestions? No lights such as the boot light are on, I have checked that. The immobilizer light is on but apparently that only uses a minute amount. Thanks to anyone that can help. John H

It won't start again unless I replace the fuse. If I had to put a 10 amp fuse in its place would it solve the problem or would it aggrivate the circumstances please. You assistance will be greatly appreciated. Thank you and have a great day.

When the headlights are on and I do a three point turn type manoeuvre, the left headlight goes out when I turn left and comes back on when I straighten up and then the right headlight goes out when I turn right and again comes back on when I straighten up. They work perfectly normal otherwise. Why is this happening, is it a design characteristic?

I lock my car with the key fob and it locks the front doors but not the boot/tailgate. Can you tell me why? I should think the alarm wouldn`t be working with the door not locked? If I open the boot/tailgate with the front doors locked the alarm doesn't go off. Can you help? I used to have a Laguna and I vaguely remember there being some sort of switch on the locking machinist, or am I wrong? I can`t see one on the Clio, thanks Mick

Yesterday at some lights it just would not go in to any gear at all....I had to come of the clutch completely much to the annoyance of the driver behind. I love my Clio but according to the garage bought it from they said that the Clio is well known for sticky gears....surely not that sticky....I have almost dislocated my shoulder getting it in!
