Hi bbaroo, Clio2's have a very poor range on the IR key (remember it must be direct line of sight for an IR key to work), sounds daft but are the 2 batteries in the correct way up? also is the small corrigated contact strip still in place on the top of the batteries? ...
if all else fails try cleaning
1/ the contact plate inside the key very gently with brasso (or similar)to clean it up,
2/ the purple IR reciever in the roof console, try cleaning it inside and out to make sure there is no crud blocking the signal
also check the "bulb" on the key is clean and not badly scratched.
hope it helps
Why is it the older I get .... the better I think I was ?
