I had to call out the AA on Saturday. When I came back to the car after an hour there was no power, to the extent I couldn't even open the door using the key fob remote.

The AA patrolman confirmed that there was nothing wrong with the battery, but informed me that there was information on his database from Renault that the electrics may require rebooting. This is done by removing and reinserting the 5 amp fuse second from the right in the second row down. It's the same as turning the computer off and back on! Anyway it did the trick, and I pass this on in case anybody else has the same problem.

Worth knowing. Smile

Removing a fuse is a lot easier than unbolting a battery terminal.

The AA man did remove one of the battery leads, but it made no difference. Apparently removing that fuse reboots the system. Don't understand how or why but Renault have documented removing and then reinserting this fuse as the fix.
