Hi all, im a newbie i know! but im having a lot of trouble with my car, not a very good start to the new year.
I noticed a few days ago that my car wasnt locking properly when i pressed the plip thing on my key. so there i am..waving my arm around trying to lock it. Ive had problems with my aeriel like everyone else because of water leaking through the top. i sealed it and then noticed it still leaking, so i sealed the whole sunroof and thought ah thank god.
i thought that the car wouldnt lock properly because of the water and so it wopuld dry out and eventually be okay. until xmas eve i try to open the car to go home and it isnt going anywhere. im
Im thinking now that maybe all this water coming in would have somehow short circuited the sensor at the top of the light switches which activate the immobiliser. i changed the batteries in my key and tried everything. I rang my local renault dealer and explained to them only to discover that it will be a sky high bill.
Ive heard various stories in different forums that say these:
- The key can become out of sync with the sensor
- A code can be found with the manual to reset the immmobiliser temporarily
- The wires can corrode that connect to the IR reciever (sensor box)
Ive looked on the internet for a replacment sensor because it slides out but ive found no luck.
I cant start my car or do anything with it so im just wondering what you guys think i should do.
Any replies would be very much appreciated...and wow ive wrote alot.
