Hi folks, im told people on here can be pretty helpful so I'm on to pick yer brains!
Im a skint student who a few weeks ago bought a 98 Megane Coupe privately and have had a small problem with the the remote locking being tempramental!
I have today changed the battery in the key fob and now the damn thing wont activate the central locking at all (altho the wee red light still lights when button pressed)!
Worse news was that when i opened the door manually with the key and tried to start the car, it wont start and im assuming this is to do with the immobiliser.
I was not amused when I rang my local main dealer who basically said i would probably need a new key at about £120 inc vat for new key and programming it (and will also take 7-10 days - without a car!!).
Am i being taken for a fool or is there an easier way to sort this? Ie: can immobiliser be switched off? Can my own key be reprogrammed again to work? Can I do this or will my local dealer have to do it?
Any advice will be much appreciated!
p.s. i only got one key with the car!
