It's the engine management light and unfortunately, it could relate to a number of different faults.

Have you noticed the car running any differently or even any strange smells (namely a rotten egg / sulfur smell)?

No nothing like that, that's what has puzzled me. Like there has been no signs of anything.

I would get it onto a OBD code reader or even better a Renault clip and it will track it down.

Im guessing it might be a misfire but who knows.

I did the OSD and nothing came up, but - - - - which apparently means no fault. I'm stumped.

That will only tell you if there is a fault with the dash panel.

As said before get it into a garage and on some diagnostic equipment or you will be changing parts for ever.

Is the light on constant or flashing?

No it hasn't been decatted, the exhaust has just been welded though as a mount had snapped off, wonder if that has started the problem off? Perhaps the sensor has gone.

There is always the option of a bluetooth OBDII dongle to use along with the 'Torque' App on your phone should you wish. Roughly £12 on eBay I do believe. I've found it invaluable, especially handy for codes/resets. Can also be used for telemetry with an in-car phone holder.

I would agree a code reader is one of the best investments if you want to keep Clios running right. Even if it helps with the judgment call of do I do the work or do I go to a garage.

I ve had this on both trophy's happens when idling (first one had std exhaust and if idling for 5 mins would do it every time) over fueling code/miss fire car had 8,000 miles and still did it 40,000. Clio I have does it now ever day in queuing traffic but does have decat. Code say miss fire. But no miss fire. Just fuel on idle. Does it more on cheap fuel
