We took all the registration documents to the local stealer who charged us 90 plus to order a new card and blade from France.

We collected this from the stealer on Sat 7th and although I knew we would not be able to drive the car at least we could get into it, recover some needed belongings and make a start on moving the car from the shopping car park where thankfully it has remained untouched for the week.

The new key does not work!!!

Insert the newly cut blade (by Renault using their information) and it just turns in the lock.

I can see 3 possible reasons.

1. The new blade has been cut incorrectly

2. The internal mechanism of the lock is faulty

3. The lock has been changed before we bought the car and Renault were unaware of this.

No. 3 I think unlikely as we have the full service history and there is no mention of any locks or locking problems.

No. 2 is possible but then it is going to be more money from us as it is our problem (car long out of warranty)

No. 1 is my hopeful choice as the dealer would be required to sort it out.

However I can see this is going to cost a great deal more than my initial depressing thoughts.

I am tempted to smash a window now, press the unlocking button by the gear lever and then at least we can get the "unreadable" card and hopefully move the car.

Does the central unlock button inside work when the car is in this locked state? This would seem to be a security flaw in an otherwise very secure car if you can open it in this way.

Unless anyone else has any suggestions
Hi, if its deadlocked the central locking button will not unlock the car, also smashing a window will achieve nothing. I would put money on the blade being cut wrong as its the parts dept at the dealer who supplies renault with the details of the cut. If they were having a 'I cant be arsed day' then 1 wrong digit inputted will result in the wrong cut on the blade. I would suggest getting intouch with the dealer and double checking the details given for the blade.

no, if its been programmed to a car already it cannot be re programmed to a different car as the chip locks when programmed,and cannot currently be unlocked , ebay is a no no , unless the seller can garauntee it is virgin , just because it has an uncut blade with it is not enough ,we can buy them on their own , so can ebayers

forgive me if I have missed something but.....If I have a keycard (my scenic is keyless entry etc) is it possible to programme a blank card (by cloning/copying) my original card or does the car have to be present?

Life is too short...laugh and enjoy it while you are able to
