Just a thought as I have never seen inside one, but to me it almost sounds like a relay with the contacts frozen together. By frozen I mean as in welded together.
If it has a relay in the circuit (the French love 'em) I'd start there.

Thanks for the thought Alan.
Renault now say its the BMI unit whatever that is, its £112 + VAT,
so I hope they are right this time.

My guess is it will be some kind of sealed I/C with about five bobs worth of bits in it.

RENAULT NOW SEEM TO HAVE SORTED IT, THEY REPLACED THE BII UNIT.
ACCORDING TO THE MECHANIC THIS IS "A BLACK COMPUTER ABOUT 4 INCHES
SQUARE THAT CONTROLS ALMOST EVERYTHING" IT'S LOCATED IN THE FUSE BOX.[:)][:)]
