99 Clio II - IR Key Problems!

Hey guys! Sorry if this as already beem covered elsewere but here goes.

I bought a 1999 Mark 2 Clio and it came with only one normal key (not one for remote central locking.

I purchased a IR remote control key from ebay , took it to Timpsons who put a new key blade in it, and put a new chip in it and programed it to my old key so that they both have the same code.

The key will open all the doors if you put it in the locks, it will also start the car etc BUT i cant get it to open the doors using the remote central locking when i press the button on it. I have tried to sync the key to the car using by pressing the central locking button in the car, and also taking out the fuse and put it back in again aswell.

I found a link on another thread - Is that what I need to do, or is there something else I need?

Renault are quoting me about 85 to stick it on the computer to sort it out, but as I said, the key is doing everything it should, except opening the door remotely.

Please Help!!!
