steering lock replacement

I was interested to read the threads about the steering lock replacement because last Friday evening upon returning from a business trip to Germany I went to my car in the long term car park at Stansted, opened the door and boot, loaded my lugggage and got in the drivers seat only to find that all the electrics were working but the starter button did not want to do anything! Anyway after a long night and unsuccessful attempts by the recovery agents (who suggested that the key card was probably wiped clean in the airport X-Ray machine) I hired a car to go 120 miles home and get my spare key card with which I returned the next morning only to have exactly the same response from my Laguna V6. Having now had it recovered to my local Renault dealer they inform me that they want 119 for a new battery (which I know was not the problem ) and a further 480 to fit a new electronic steering lock mechanism which they say was the problem?? Has anyone had any similar experiences or suggestions?

I had keycard problems on my laguna (wouldn't start but would let me in to the car), after getting the car recovered to the dealer and waiting a week or so for the keycard I got a call from the dealer stating the battery was flat, failed to charge over night and needed replacing. I thought they were trying it on. But on hearing about your airport parking nightmare I'm now beginning to think there is some relationship. I'm lucky cause, the car is still warrentied and both keycards were replaced without charge, plus I'd been on the phone to Renault UK all week about trying to find out when the keycards were gonna arrive, cause the dealer didn't know, and I needed the car for a fast approaching holiday. Renault UK kept on telling me they'd call me back, which they failed to do more than three times, in the end demanded to speak to a supervisor, in the meantime got the news that my keycards had arrived and the battery was defective, managed to get Renault UK to pay for the battery. But how/why does a defective keycard flatten the battery? Anyone know? Does it have something with the cardreader trying to seek out the keycard when it's inserted?
