I have mentioned it in seperate post byt maybe here it will be helpful if anybody has such a problem.

It was heavy fog. My head lights (in auto mode) went on and shortly afterwards I tried to switch on fog lights. No response. Tried to change from auto to manual mode - no response. Lights were totally blocked in that one position. Stalk was working but it was no any reaction in lights.
Solution: Stop the car, stop engine. Start - everything works again.
It happened only once, so maybe it is not a regular system behaviour.
Will see in the future.

I had this happen today!! Not a bad day weather wise quite bright......set off from home no auto lights switched on (daytime led lights only).......stopped at filling station.....on starting up again no auto lights on again......but yet headlights/sidelights on on startup.....very strange.Tried flicking back and forth via stalk switch and no change headlights/sidelights still on......even though switch was OFF.
Arrived at my main destination lights still on........switched engine off.....restarted it.....and guess what all was well.......back as it should be just daytime leds..........very strange!!! been ok since too!!!

Hope the Renault electrickery gremlin hasn't paid me an early visit!!

Good news is that it did not happedned any more (so far) so I think it is some problem with system control. In renault electricity is well known problem. In most cases - in my 23 years of driving renault cars history - not very serious.Now I observe something different - no maps message in R-link (after restart/reset - I mean stop, switch off, close doors, open again, start on) it usually works again. It happened 3 times in two months. Last time the solution mentioned above did not worked and I had to take SD card to computer; it said: card failure; and there is an option to repair a card/restore data; so I tried and after two attempts card was working again.
Maybe it is problem with my SD card. If it happens again - hopefuly not - I will investigate it more closely.
