So I'm just wondering if I have to buy a new sensor from the dealer or can I jst get one from a breaker?

If anyone else has had this probem what did you do to resolve.

hi ya

iv had this problem for years or shall i say had. when i first bought my 99 clio 1.4 rt the key worked fine, but then one heavy rain storm caused a leak in the roof. after this my key no longer worked. i went to a garage and they said the cost was not worth it and just to use it manually. recently i was reading on here and decided to give some of the advice a shot. i bought a new IR reader (the little circuit board) around 50 which just plugs straight in behind the interior light, re-synched my key (using the great advice on here) and hay presto its working again. should have tried this when it first happened!
