how to find out if its a RF/IR key
Hello fellow sufferer of everyday challenges,
To check what key you have get your self a mobile phone with a camera and put the phone in camera mode put the key infront of the lense and press the key fob if when you look through the viewer of the phone you see that the there is a blue flashing coming from the key (the clear bulb on the key fob not the flashing red light where your thub is pressing) this means you have an IR key if not you have a RF one.
As for fixing the immobiliser I got in touch with my local renault dealer and got the code from them it cost £20 but I found it well worth it rather than going without a car.
Check the interior sensor located above you as you sit in the front driver seat the sensor could have been damaged from water leaking from the aerial. Hope this helps steve..
