key card problem

Hi, I have a scenic 06 reg, I can unlock the car by using the key card but cannot unlock any door or the tailgate when just in pocket. Also when card is in ignition it will start but when just in car it cannot find card to start.

Sorry if I've misread anything here, but, the car won't start until the card is inserted in the slot, that is the point of it.

With regards the remote central locking not working whilst in your pocket, that just seems to be the cards having a weak signal, or the battery needs replaced. I know mine won't work from more than about 6ft away and that is with a new battery fitted.

Hi Morgan131

Apologies if this sounds like a silly question, but does you car actually have the hands free locking system on it? From what you described its operating normally for a vehicle without hands free.

To check this out, have a look at the door handles - if there is a small button on them which you can press to lock the car your car has Hands Free. If these buttons are not fitted then your Scénic doesn't have a hands free entry system and is operating correctly.

Kind regards
