Key card problems

Hi all.

I have a feeling that this subject's probably been raised before, but here goes.......

I have a 53 reg Scenic, and one of the key cards has gone pear shaped. It'll start the car, but wont operate the central locking. There appears to be something loose inside, 'cause if you give it a shake you can hear something rattling around.

As I'm sure everyone's aware, these things cost an arm & a leg to buy new from a dealer. Second hand ones are pretty cheap to buy on e-bay, but I've heard that it's impossible to get pre-owned cards reprogrammed? I've also found a company on-line who'll repair 2 button Laguna cards, but wont touch the 3 button Scenic cards.

I'm starting to think that I'm on a hiding to nothing, but I thought I'd submit the post on the off chance that anyone knows of a solution..??
