Inoperative Remote Control - Clio 1.2 yr2000

Hello Everyone,

My remote control / ignition key has suddenly stopped locking / unlocking my car yet the red indicator light is still illuminating which I thought was an indication that there is still life in the battery.
Could this simply be a run down battery fault or is it more likely to be something else?
I can`t check with a spare remote because I don`t have one yet which leads to another question, is it possible to get fixed up with a spare ignition key / remote control unit without having to pay main dealer prices.

Thanks to any one who can assist.

This has happened with mine on occasions and i have managed to remedy it by pointing it directly at the sensor - kind of reprogramming it. I was told to give this a go once, and i've never changed a battery in mine in over 5 years

I found out the reason as to why this may have needed re-programming and it was due to a leaky aerial which is situated directly above the sensor and interior light panel - soaking the inside of my car, everytime it rained heavily Maybe this is something you could do with checking out - very common on Clio's.

Good luck
