Key card & steering lock

My key card door switch recently broke so after Renault told me the price of new card I decided to have a go at fixing it with help of electronic technician at work. Unfortunatly more was broken than expected and the card then failed completely. RAC towed the car to Renault dealer (cross Roads) while the new card was on its way. They called me to say that the diagnostic computer has found that the steering lock was faulty and it cost 600 to change!! I don't really believe in such a coincidence and think that the garage is trying to cure a problem the expensive way.
Has anyone had this problem before where the steering locked itself after a card failure/change?
Also since I said to the dealer that I was on my way to see it he called me strait back saying that they will try to sort the problem a different way...
