Then I strongly suspect you could have a faulty TDC sensor.

The immobiliser on the later Renaults(like yours) isn't controlled by key blip,so changing the battery in the key would be a waste of time.....

If possible,get the garage to read the ECU fault codes,and that should confirm that the TDC sensor is intermittantly not sending a signal to the ECU .It is a very common fault with Renaults,and isn't expensive to replace(around £30 inc fitting).

Good luck,and let us know how you get on.

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