1st of all it sounds like the car does need a new battery.
I guess it will probably have been stood for a while and this cold wether will just kill a weak battery.
2nd, the central locking.
The central locking will not work by locking the door with the key, it will only lock the drivers door. I would change the battery in the key for a new one and then see if it works.
Don't go to renault dealer for a battery, they will charge the earth. The last one i bought was from a photoshop, cant remember the name. They were selling them for 49p each. Will have been photo express or something along them lines.
