Re: New Car, Laguna 2.0 Privilege, lots of questions!
The Privilege is a lovely model, nice one
1) New key card from Renault was £140 last time I checked, but prices vary from dealer to dealer. No, personal settings are only for models with electric memory seats (the Initiale), so unless your car had that optional extra then it won't remember personal settings. Key Cards can't be programmed without the full dealer kit (Renault CLIP is the diagnostic system), and it must also be brand new, second hand key cards CANNOT be used.
2) The rear sunblind pulls up out of the parcel shelf. All models, even if they didn't have the sun blinds as standard, had the hooks - so somebody with a lesser Laguna has probably swapped parcel shelves at one stage.
3) If there are 4 wheels showing on the display by the radio and no pressure readouts on the screen below the mileage in the instrument cluster then yes, the system has been deactivated. It can easily be reactivated and new valves coded by the dealer. Nice feature to have as the voice synthesizer speaks about each tyre and to slow down if the pressure is not suited to the driving speed!
