I've never heard of the immobiliser overrides before,so I can't comment on them.They do seem a little pricey,though.

Most garages will have a signal tester,and it only takes a few seconds to carry out.Apparently you can also test them using a digital camera,but I've never tried this.Apparently as you press the key near it the signal will effect the screen image so you can see if it's emitting a signal or not.I've also been told that some key signals can be picked up using a radio aerial.(it causes interference to the radio when worked).

To order a new reciever from Renault,you'll need to remove the old one and quote the number on the sticker which is stuck on the unit.Dealers can usually get them the next day.

Good luck,let us know how you get on.

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