Key cards cannot be reprogrammed to a different car.
ALso now you cannot get a card programmed, or purchase one, without proving ownership of the car to a Renault dealer.

It sounds as though your card is suffering from the common problem of one of the switches decoming detatched from the pcb. If you are careful you can open the cards with a stanley knife and re-solder the connections.
Several people have repaired their keycards in this way, saving lots of money.

If you do a search on this forum there is a bit more detail of how to carry out the repairs.
