Depending upon whats wrong with your Renault card I would be tempted to look at fitting a reputable aftermarket rolling code alarm/immobiliser with car unlocking feature rather than buying new cards. This assumes the immoiliser function of your Renault car still works. Granted - not an option for the original poster.

You will still need to put your Renault card in the slot (provided it works still) in order to deactivate the imobiliser & steering lock but I guess its going to be a lot cheaper over time than buying Ren cards if you intend to keep the car. Probably pay-back after the first card failure!

As the car lock/unlock is a mechanical switch on the Renault card it IS going to fail at some point.

There is no reason for the proximity detection function of the card (i.e. the reason you put it in the slot) to fail other than destruction of the card itself as the immoiliser activation/deactivation is contactless.

The added advantage is you can get a decent alarm which is loud and can easily disable the ultrasonic detectors. Neither of which you get with the Espace IV.

Must admit I quite like the security of the Renault immobiliser if it works as I think it does.

looks like rochdale is going to become my local dealership, the one in my home town some 25 miles away from rochdale would probably charge me 200 for a new key

any idea how much they charge for a curtousy car???

It does i was lucky enough that when i bought my car they threw in the spare otherwise i was going to have to buy one, and they told me about what u have been quoted

I think Rochdale will be the location for the next forum mass meet, hope the garage are informed in advance so they can get extra cards and staff in for the day
