You're more than welcome

The fuel filler cap had me stumped for a while. Originally, I thought the lock on it was broken, because it was staying unlocked after the door locks had all operated.

As for the handsfree not operating the deadlocks, I think that's a necessary safety feature to prevent you from accidentally trapping your passengers in the car. I've had the handsfree system lock my passengers in the car countless times - usually when I walk off to pay at a petrol station. Without the deadlocks, the doors can still be opened from the inside.

I'd still be happy if you could deadlock the car with the card, but still unlock it again by breaking one of the handle light beams when you returned. It's just annoying that, by using the deadlocking, you completely disable the handsfree functionality until the next time you press the 'Start' button. As a result, I rarely deadlock my car, and I doubt many other handsfree Renault owners do either. I wonder how long it'll be before the crooks get wise to this... or whether they already have
