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.
Bit of a bummer on the price, but not 'essential' at the moment. I will do some looking up on CLIP though, im sure like other car makers the software will be available from the 'usual sources'. Does the use of such software get discussed here, or is it against forum rules?

Just my luck, well, I will take another look just to be sure, and then I guess I'll have to try and source one ;0)

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!
Hmmmm, I have NO wheels showing! The display works, as it shows the doors opening, but I get no info on tyre pressures on either the dash upper display, or the instrument cluster display (I think I read that when you cycle through the OBC menu with the right hand stalk button, you should see the tyre info?) Does NO wheels showing mean something else is amiss?

I have not heard any voice from the car (maybe this is a good thing) is there a test, or something I can do to make it speak?

thanks for the info!
