Alarm Noise and Keyless HandsFree

Hi everybody, I have just bought a second hand 2004 MK11 Scenic but there's 2 things which annoy me but am unsure if they are faults or just part of the parcel. Firstly is there a way to turn off the keyless Handsfree. I want to have to press the unlock/lock buttons and insert the card to start the engine not just have the card in my pocket.

Secondly, when I lock the car I get an High Pitch whining noise for approx 60 seconds. This is very frustrating, especially at night. Is this a fault or can it be deactivated?? Thanks for your help in advance.

Hello & Welcome to the Forums Freeblade.

To the best of my knowledge you cannot alter the handsfree option on your Scenic II, You can still put the key in the slot and use the card as a plip but why over the handsfree I dont see the point.

Your Whining noise is a fault what the fault is I do not know.

I'm guessing one of the door sensors is giving a fault, so the alarm is not setting.

If it's anything like the Laguna system, then using the lock/unlock buttons on the card will disable the handsfree locking until you next start the engine (so effectively, if you lock with the card, you can only unlock with the card.) As Otto says, you can still stick the card in the slot if you want to.

The handsfree system does have its irritations, most of which revolve around how the system behaves if your passenger happens to have their card with them too. The silly little ritual of having to make sure that the passenger stands well back from the car while the driver approaches to unlock it can be irritating, but it's necessary if you want the seat and mirror memories to select the correct positions for the driver. Once you're in the car, it often starts off the wrong keycard too. That's not so much of an irritation, but it can mean it decides to stick the radio on when you had been listening to a CD and leaves you with the passenger's favoured climate settings instead of your own.

If you really hate it, then the dealer may well be able to disable it with the Clip computer. It'd probably hurt the re-sale value of the car though (unless you paid to got it re-enabled) so I'd be inclined to just take the bad with the good and learn to live with it

Thanks very much for taking the time to answer my questions.

After checking the door switches I looked under the bonnet and found that the alarm sensor switch wasn't been pushed down enough. I have used 3 pieces of Number Plate tape stuck on top of each other and applied to the bonnet directly above the switch and this has done the job. Not sure if Renault have a fix for this though.

As for the key, I suppose I will have to live with it. The only reason I wish to change is I am so use to the traditional method of manual locking.......... suppose I will have to get with the times (All this new technology).

Thanks again
