  • Hi thanks for the hard work. I have developed a very strange issue on my 2010 Clio 3 RS. The vehicle is being worked on currently so the front wheels are not on the ground. I started the car 3 times without any issues, however on the third time I moved the steering wheel slightly and it locked. From then on ESL doesn’t allow starting the car. I got a good emulator and found that there’s no current being supplied to the ESL connector plug. It seems the same thing regarding ABS and column. On the ESL it seems that the pink wire should have current. I also noticed that the pink relay on the side of the battery box has got very hot at the connector to the white wire. If you can offer any assistance I will greatly appreciate it as Renault South Africa is useless. One more thing the diode in the fuse box inside is blown. I must say that there are many bad connections and I could see water was in the fuse box or PCM.

  • Absolutely brilliant, just 1 question:-
    Is there a fuse or relay for the petrol pump on my 08 Clio 197, any help would be much appreciated.
