Keycard - Card broken/faulty - Dead Battery - Emergency Entry *With Pics*

For those Members who have a Renault Keycard and no Manual .

For gaining access to the car if it is not responding to the Key card or your car's battery is dead. In this example the card and car is a Megane II .

As Pic 1 shows this is also the location of your card battery, If you are changing the card battery avoid skin contact with the battery as moisture/oils transferred to the battery can cause problems within the keycard .

The battery is a CR2025 and can be purchased readily in most supermarkets or any battery stockist


Pic 1 Gently pull the emergency key from the card


Pic 2 The emergency access handle is usually located on the passengers side of the car, Identified by the key logo on the handle


Pic 3 locate the slot on the handle


Pic 4 Partially insert the emergency key into the slot


Pic 5 With the emergency key partially inserted in the slot gently twist the key and the cover should pop off


Pic 6 Once the cover is removed you will see a more conventional key hole


Pic 7 Insert the emergency key into the exposed lock and turn this will open door that the key is inserted in



Remove the emergency key and replace the door handle cover by just gently pressing it in place.

Ensure the card battery is still in place before gently slotting the emergency key into the card.

It's amazing how many owners don't have a handbook for their car.

I had to use mine as you have described only 2 weeks after buying my Laguna, the garage I got it from supplied it with a duff battery, after 2 weeks I found the car was dead, had it recovered to the garage who fitted a new battery.

A problem well stated is a problem half solved !

If you normally drive alone it is a good idea to check regularaly that the front passenger door unlocks: if the lock mechaism breaks for any reason, you will not be able to easily gain entry if the car battery should go flat!

I have never tried the emergency entry so thought I would have a dry run.

Good illustrated post Otto it will be useful to peeps that are not already aware, although I know it wouldn't be of much help if the car battery was dead, nevertheless its a pity you cant start the car with this perceived
