Renault Scenic - Key Fob Fault

I just joined this forum as i purchased a 1998 Megane Scenic yesterday.
I am now just noticing a few
The remote central locking works when it wants to, i end up looking like a demented monkey pointing the fob wildley at the car untill it unlocks.
Could this be a faulty fob or just a battery to replace in the fob?
I only got one key fob with it so i have been looking on ebay for another for spare and maybe fix my problem.
I see that they come with a blank key , so it will need cutting , but what about the imobiliser side of it all?, it needs programming to the car, but how is this done? Will it need to go the dealer to get done or is there a way to do it my self?
any help will be greatfully recieved.

Welcome to the forum.

Don't bother with a key from eBay ,try a local autolock specialist near to you.The new key will have to programmed to the car and the only way to do this is to use specialist equipment.

Have a serch on the forum as the keys and the remote central locking have been covered many times on here.If you can't find the relevant info,get back to us and we'll point you in the right direction.

I'd rather push my Alfa than drive a BMW....
