Keycard - Card broken/faulty - Dead Battery - Emergency Entry *With Pics*

For those Members who have a Renault Keycard and no Manual .

For gaining access to the car if it is not responding to the Key card or your car's battery is dead. In this example the card and car is a Megane II .

As Pic 1 shows this is also the location of your card battery, If you are changing the card battery avoid skin contact with the battery as moisture/oils transferred to the battery can cause problems within the keycard .

The battery is a CR2025 and can be purchased readily in most supermarkets or any battery stockist

Pic 1 Gently pull the emergency key from the card

Pic 2 The emergency access handle is usually located on the passengers side of the car, Identified by the key logo on the handle

Pic 3 locate the slot on the handle

Pic 4 Partially insert the emergency key into the slot

Pic 5 With the emergency key partially inserted in the slot gently twist the key and the cover should pop off

Pic 6 Once the cover is removed you will see a more conventional key hole

Pic 7 Insert the emergency key into the exposed lock and turn this will open door that the key is inserted in

Remove the emergency key and replace the door handle cover by just gently pressing it in place.

Ensure the card battery is still in place before gently slotting the emergency key into the card.
