Hello Amanda,welcome to the forum.

Renault are the only ones that can give you the code unfortunately.Do you have a handbook/service book with the car,it might be printed or written in there.

It could be key fob or the reciever giving problems as both are reasonably common faults.Ideally you need to be able to work out if the key is sending a signal,if it's not then the fob is faulty,if it is then it's usually the reciever at fault.Have you ever had any problems with water coming around the aerial?.

Just one thing,re-reading your post,are you using the key in the door lock to get into the car or is the fob now working and you 'blip it' to gain access?.

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