It just goes to show that Renault can't do anything consistently. The wife's always leaving her card in the car when I'm driving it on mine, and it never locks. It's one of the reasons why I always have to keep a look out for the horn and flashing lights as I walk away.

There's a little ritual to getting into the car if both of you have your keycards: The passenger has to stand well back while the driver opens the door. The seat and mirrors will then go to the correct position for the driver. Though it's still pot-luck as to what it'll do with the radio and climate control settings when you start the engine.

On the Lag, at least, once it's decided that it's going to set up for the wrong driver, even putting your card in the slot won't sort it out. I've said it before and I'll say it again: The Renault handsfree system is an excellent idea, badly implemented.

If it has recognised your wifes card - if you put your card in the slot - does it then reset to yours if you then press the memory button on the drivers seat.

I often shout at my wife - 'DON'T STEP NEAR THE CAR' where she will reply 'why is it going to blow up or something'

Anyway all good fun - bit like a some aspects of a relationship - you end up finding a routine that works!
