Hello,and welcome to the forum.

The first thing to check is do you have a signal from the key?
The transmitter may have been damaged,and although you have a red light illuminated on the key when you press the button it doesn't always mean that it's emitting a signal.Most garages have a tester and it only takes a few seconds to do.I have heard of other ways of doing this by using either a digital camera or a radio aerial,but I can't for the life of me remember the procedure.Maybe someone else could help?.

If you do have a signal,then suspect the roof mounted reciever.I have changed many of these as they can be damaged from water ingress through the aerial.There around 60 from Renault and need to be matched to your key(there should be a paper sticker on it with a sequence of numbers that you have to quote when ordering it).

I'd rather push my Alfa than drive a BMW....
