Hi Staunt - looks like you've been conned - each keycard is unique and cannot be reprogrammed - the car must be reprogrammed to suit the card and for obvious security reasons Renault will only use a new card supplied by themselves. In other words if the person who sold you the card and it fitted - how long do you think your car would be around. Whilst the keycard system is not cheap when it comes to repairs it is also one of the most secure. Why did you need another card anyway or did you only get one with the car as Renault supply two when new.
If you have two cards and one os broken it may be able to be repaired.
Good old Flea-bay again.
