Not sure whether this will work on Renaults, but have you tried putting the metal bit of the key in your mouth as you press the button?

Sounds crazy, but it certainly works on my Rover 75 and a mate's BMW 3-series.

Also had, on 2 occasions, a temporary blind spot. Two of us in Tesco's carpark couldn't make our remotes work, regardless of how close we got to the car: mine at least was fine later in the day at home. Second occasion was while at home, a neighbour has a Vectra, and neither his nor mine would work. Again, OK later in the day!!

And no, neither of these is for April 1st, both are genuine.


Edit: read in a fairly recent issue of Auto Express this morning about a similar case. The car was in a multi-storey c/p, and the remote wouldn't work. The reason was that it was parked next to a wall that had been built with steel reinforcements, and this was affecting the remote signal. Car was opened using key, moved a couple of yards, remote worked.

Ditto comment about April 1st.
