Lightbulb IR remote problem


have recently had a few problems with my 97 clio remote.

apparently all renault keys are programmed so you have 15 seconds to change the battery, or it loses its code and becomes out of sync with the sensor

you need to get the code and enter it using the central locking button on the console.

renault will charge quite a bit for this, but there are a few good people on the internet who let you use programs for free which use information from the key and car themselves (so only the owner could use it, not some mischevious person!)

would also recommend you check the sensor diodes for any corrosion, as this can add to problems with the remote and cause it to only work within a small distance from the sensor

hope this helps
