Megane 1 Immobiliser Plip Broken


My car wouldn't unlock with the remote. I can unlock it with the key, but that doesn't unset the immobiliser.

I've taken the cover off of the key, and the IR LED has come away from the circuit board.

If I resolder it on, do you think it would work?

Also, does anyone know which way round to solder it? (It fell out when I took it out, and I don't know which way round to put it back)

Also, if I can't get it to work, does anyone know if there's a way of getting the car running without it? Ca you bypass the imobiliser?

And finally, any ideas on price for a new plip? does the car have to be at the dealer to get one?

Currently in NickPick's garage:
1997 Renault Megane Classic 2.0 RXE, but still prefers his old Audi Coupe and Lancia Delta HF Turbos.
