my wife has a 98 Clio II 1.4RT 5 door on an s-plate, the vehicle has remote central locking but i think the fob button is broken.
tried replacing batteries but red light not working and u can see the button inside is well worn too.
ok, problem 1 - now we can't lock the car as this is the only remote key we have, we can manual lock all doors from inside and drivers door with key but can't lock boot at all now!! I can't believe this car won't central lock from using the key in drivers door like most other cars do!!!! Oh yeah the panic button by gear stick works fine and locks all doors and boot lock from inside the car.
so, on to next problem - called renault leicester (just to amuse myself and i wasn't disappointed) they quoted £99 for a new fob and another £75 to reprogramme it-how can that be justified - THIEVES!!!!!!!!!!!!!
anyway, loads of these fobs going cheap on
, as i have the key and 3 other spares for the car, could i simply buy another fob and swap the key blades and the little chip inside the key to a working unit?????????
any other ideas if this don't work???
