I took my key apart to find the number, and then check out being able to use the emergency immobiliser override. Just in case
But when I put the key back together, it doesn't work.
Lucky I now know how to override the immobiliser
The red LED doesn't light when I press the button now. I've checked the batteries, and the 2 of them give 5.50V. Not quite 6V, but I'd thought that was OK. Has been a few years since they were replace, so it's possible that they are marginal. I've ordered some new batteries, and hopefully that will fix it. But it's strange that it stopped working.
Maybe something else is wrong, but I was careful with it, so fingers crossed it's just the batteries.
Anyone else have similar problems?
I've thought about buying another key from
(we lost the 2nd key when moving house a few years ago). But having read some people saying that you can't reprogram the key yourself, and others giving info about how to reprogram it, I'm not sure if a different IR key needs a Renault dealer's attention or not. Does anyone know for sure?
