Hello guys, i'm new to this forum and been reading carefully your posts on this subject. There seems to be quite a bit of confusion here. I have the original service/technical manual cd´s from Renault and it cover´s all cars till 2004. The manual states that the procedures above is for re-sinchronising the remotes only! Is thr frequency is alredy programed in the car and the remote goes out off sync with it. It is NOT for peogramming a new remote frequency in to the car. The ONLY way to do it is with the diagnostic computer at Renault or a dealer that has one. You can onle program 2 remotes at once. As for programing the car to acept a new key (transponder chip) it can ONLY be done on the diagnostic computer too, and you can program up to 4 keys, witch is kind of dumb IMHO as if you shoud be alowed to program 4 remotes as well. So that saied you can buy a key on e-bay (will save you about £90) but you still have to spend some to get the car programmed to the key.
