mark 2 1.6 expression card reader
Anybody in the know? After using one keycard for a year after the other failed to be recognised by the car, the same problem happened, that is the card failed to start the car. All lights working and doors open ok, plus micros switches are ok as I re soldered them myself. Went to local Renault dealer who diagnosed the two cards as ok but it may be the reader at fault. Quote for the new reader was £214. I thought that was steep for the part but was told it was for the fitting and the diagnostics. I know the reader is easy to replace by just popping it out and disconnecting and reconnecting the cable at the back. So my question to anybody in the know is - £214 for the reader? am I being ripped off? if so, does anybody know of a renault dealer who has the reader at a cheaper price and I can fit myself?
