My missus owns a 2002 laguna, which is now playing up.
It has the 'key card' system.
I have searched hundreds of threads around the web. Problem is the key intermittently wont activate the ignition-only the radio (acc).
Doors unlock/lock as they always have, from miles away.
First time i try, it tends to work-ie light up all ignition lights..pull card out and put it back in - nothing.
Then ill wiggle gearstick for ages, push clutch in etc (I believe there are some microswitches that need to be in place) - oh-or is that just for starting?
Anyhow, i have had the card slot out, tried to clean it up-but does not seem to come apart...
Could it be the card slot? Like the ignition microswitch kind of unsticking itself overnight? Or the key?
I have left key in and disconn battery for 5 mins, but this has not helped.
I have put new batt in remote, which seems 100% ok. None of the web pages I have scoured seem to say that the key can malfunction regarding ignition, rather than switches breaking that open the doors.
Are there any basic checks I can do? Before going bankrupt going to main dealers?
Hope this is the right thread etc, and promise me-i have done some checking :P
