Key Card again - follow up

Thought it would be better to start a new thread rather than joining another as its an update really.
I bought a laguna 2 dci a while ago and was given 3 keys, one worked 100% but looked pretty new the other 2 were well worn and would not open the doors or start the car, I could use the emergency key to open the door on both the spare cards, I was told to send them for repair and thanks to gary the keys came back a little further on. Now the keys led lights when the buttons are pressed but still they dont unlock the doors or start the car.
When pushed in the card module the leds on the reader flashes and the car fan and radio starts up but nothing else happens.
I rang a renault dealer and they say that if a new card was bought maybe they would have deleted the other 2 from the system
Is this possible?? or could there be another reason they are not working, have checked with the previous owner and he says that the cards were given to him by the owner before and they never worked but was told they were the originals??

Hi,it is possible the cards have been deprogrammed ,the only way is to get the key cards reprogrammed to see if it works.

when you program a new keycard you have to program back in all the keycards you want to opperate the vehicle.
So if the old keycards were not present at the time the new card was made they will not work.

They can be re programmed to the vehicle but only the vehicle they started life with.
The transponders (7947) inside the keycard are "one time programable" and can never be fitted to another car.
