Renault magane key wont work / immobiliser problem

Hi I have a problem with my renault megane 1.4 e 97/p reg.
For some reason the key no longer works.

I have replaced the battery in the key but still no good.
The light comes on on the key but the central locking doesnt work.

Also the car wont start because of the immobiliser!

I have been lookin around the net about this and have heard of many reasons why this may happen.

Water in through the arial into the area where the reciever is for the key... The immobiliser being out of synch with the key.
And more.

Apparantly there is a way around it by using a code?
You can get the code from renault (I am yet to try this)
Or another way i think.

Renault want to charge me like 200 quid for a replacement key n need the car etc etc its loooong and too expensive for me.

I saw on another website someone on this forum might be able to give me the keycode for my car?

Id be greatful if anyone could help.
Can provide more info if needed.

Please help I really need the car working its my lifeline!!
