I've no idea how I might have infringed copyright, but the matter is moot now.

I couldn't unpack the rar file mentioned, so I got the code from alarmremote. Helpful fellow called Dave patiently guided me through the code aquisition process, a process made more complicated by the fact that the key I've got is unusual for a '96/97 Laguna, and what looked like a z was in fact a 2.

Here is a what I had to do to de-immobilse my car.

1. Find car numbers (on a sticker in the engine compartment and on a sticker in the driver's doorwell on my car. This was one long series of numbers and letters.)

2. Find key number. (Open the key fob, then ignore the 4-figure number and look for a yellow sticker or a franked stamp of 8 digits/letters, followed by an = sign and three numbers). *I was very careful about not separating the battery from the connector in the fob (plip) for more than 15 seconds.

3. Phone alarmremote, tell them the numbers, pay 10, get 4-figure code.

4. Insert key in ignition and turn so that dashboard lights are on.

5. hold down the central locking button near the handbrake. The rapid flashing red light will go out, then start to flash slowly. Each flash represents one numeral of the first number of the code. When the required number of flashes has been reached, let go of the button.

6. Repeat (5) for the other three numbers of the code.

7. Wait a few seconds (I waited 30 secs) while the red light goes off, then stays on.

8. Start the engine (I did this without returning the key to the off position or removing the key). The red light goes out.

9. Drive away with a podgier wallet than your mechanic would have hoped for.

*It's worth noting that two local Renault dealers quoted 50 and 80. One said that specialist equipment was needed. Another said a new key would be required. The local garage (usually good) thought that I needed a new ECU . They looked genuinely suprised to see me drive off!

Thanks to Renaultforums and those who posted. Immobilsers are a new hell for me and I was dreading a large bill.

Cheers musineer !!

I used this procedure with the bypass code on my 96/97 Scenic, and it works great!

I had an intermitant fault with the central locking / immobiliser. On damp days, sometimes it wouldn't respond to the key fob, (leaving me immobilised).
I spoke to a few fob replacement people after doing a google search, and it turns out the fuse box on megane's and scenics are prone to corrosion, and the fault i had was one of the symtoms. The fuse box controls most of the electics in the car (indicators, wipers, tacho, speedo, etc).
So i thought i'd better start researching into it, found the software to generate the code. And using the procedure musineer has written, i now wont be left stranded when it fails again. In the meantime i intend to try to open the fuse box and clean it up along with any other connections i can find around there.

Damp is the cause, the scenic suffers the most apparantly, probably due to the twin sunroof leaking twice as much as normall!! ( blocked drain holes mostly cause the sunroof leaks )

Glad to be of help Mannie. Useful site isn't it?

Working from home I find I don't drive much -- my 'commute' is now merely an amble to another room. I drove about 2000 miles last car year and am averaging about 35 a week this year.

This, combined with a general lack of funds and an aversion to spending what I have, has meant I've decided to see how long the button trick will work (the guy I bought the code from suggested it was only temporary: 10 uses, or 100 miles, or some such). It's now early December and I've lost count of how many times I've started the car via this method.

I've got about 10 minutes from locking the car until the immobiliser kicks in, so petrol refills are ok but a spree at a supermarket means I have to re-enter the code. I imagine this would get irksome were I to use the car daily, but I find short stops (post office, bank, etc) take less than 10 min these days!). Immobilising the immboliser would bother my insurers.

I will check the fusebox, though I fear in my case it's a defunct circuit and it'll be a few hundred quid to solve properly.
