Don't know if you still have a problem, but an auto locksmith absolutely can give you a new key - they remove the blade from your old key, insert it in a new renault fob and re-programme your car to accept the key. Fraction of the cost of the dealer and no pointless 'diagnosing' the fault when you know it's the key.

Find a local auto-locksmith (chances are one of them will specialise in Renault keys and go for it - totally solved this problem for me.
