Re: 97 scenic immobilisor and key problem

hi and welcome to the forums

have you tried WD40 in the door locks, to make sure they are loosened up, also in the key locks.
have you had any water ingress or damp in the car?

it might be there is damp or condensation on the UCH / central locking-imobiliser unit which is in under the dash.
(black box with 2 connectors) which if is damp on PCB then doors and imobiliser start playing up.

any damp under the carpet under the front seats?
have you a sunroof, is the front drainage pipe vents clear of gunk and drain water ok?

ive never stripped down a scenic so i am not sure where the central locking box is, but they tend to be located next to the fusebox in most renaults.

Spare parts available for 2001 Scenic 1.9Dci, 97 Lag1, 02 Lag2.
everythings gotta go....
cheap prices...
Currently in mord's garage:
The CreditCard Holes sooo DEEEEP NASA have put up warning signs about a black hole on the Driveway: update, the driveway and home have fallen in...
