The central locking won't work with the key in the lock,Renault design that way for some reason.The central locking doesn't work from inside the doors either,hence the central locking button on the dash/centre console.

I guess it gives you the option to open just the drivers door with the key if your one your own and don't want anyone else jumping into the car unexpectedly.Some manufacturers build in this feature to the key blip,you press it once to open the drivers door,twice unlock the whole car.Renault do it their own way on cars of this era though.

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