1998 Megane - Central Locking/Immobiliser problems
Just posting in here on behalf of a friend who is having some problems with their Megane. I'm hoping this is a common ocurrance so just wanted to see if anyone else has experienced the following symptoms. If so, how was the issue resolved.
Both key fobs seem to have died. I have tried changing the batteries but this has not made a difference. Unable to unlock it. If I unlock the driver door with the key the alarm goes off and I'm not able to use the key fob to get the car started....I need to be able to disable the alarm so I can start the car with out having to use the keyfob.
I was wondering if the key had a transponder in that was coded to the cars various
On a late 90's Vauxhall, should the remote plip fail, you can unlock the car with the key. The Alarm will sound, but placing the key in the ignition and starting the engine will silence the alarm, as the transponder will tie up with the Alarm/Immobiliser
and tell the car it can start. Not sure if Renault use a similar system.
ANy help/advice would be appreciated.
All the best,
