Thank you so much for this perfect solution to my 2nd key not working.

What I discovered was. The IR Diode had come unsoldered, Iím not surprised after looking at the casing mounting. (this can be checked with any digital camera, pressing the button on the remote with it aimed down the lenses, should produce a small red light)

However the reprogramming took me a while longer to figure out.

Firstly Iíve avoided Renault main dealers, like the plague.

However i still required my code as above,

What i can across was the site below, which will allow you to download a utility to woke out your car code. FOC
************************************************** **
Use at your own risk (Iíve treed and tested this and it works for me though) :
************************************************** ***
Download the utility, and you require the code from the back of your key (diagram on site shows where this is)

And your car type (on the sticker indie the door in my case) there is a generic list of these e.g. a Renault Megane 1 Hatchback is BA0E.

Put both of these into the program and it will give you the 4 digit code.

Then follow Leeboís instructions.
The only thing i found was i have to blip both keys in one run, as repeating the procedure will un code the other for some strange reason.

(the instructions i now carry with me in my car Ė my code)
************************************************** ***
To disable immobiliser in an emergency:
Unlock with key
Key in ignition,
Hold central lock button till immobiliser light goes to slow blink,
Release when it makes the first number, then hold again for second etc until all four are in
Car should now start

If the sync has been lost do as above,
Remove key,
Hold central lock button, immobilise light should stay on.

Blip the ir sensor until car locks and unlocks and repeat with the other key.
