Remote - not working

Hi cap - you have two keys one R/F and one without any form of transmission which allows the car to be used without remote locking etc., Depending on your system it may not be possible to get another receiver from the scrappie as some are programmed to suit the key. The receiver is programmed to suit the key and not the key programmed to suit the car. Clio's are prone to leaking aerials and sunroofs and the water can get in a damage the sender. This happened to my 1994 Clio and renault wanted 150 to replace the receiver - far too much in my opinion - so I just drive without it - after all my central locking still works and I have to puy my hand on the door to open it anyway.
P/S Try cleaning the receiver lens inside and out anyway.
