: How do I re-code my key fob?

Hi all,

I purchased my Laguna ('96) a few months back and have only now noticed that the second key fob does not operate the central locking etc. I recall the chap that sold it to me saying he had changed the battery and am assuming that he never recoded it to the car.

Anyone know how I do this? Is it one of the fun one's whereby you have to turn the key left right etc...?

Thanks in advance.....

MEGANE RF RE-PROGRAMMING

Hold the remote control button down for longer than 10 seconds (until
the red tell tale light on the key extinguishes) then press it again 3
times. Check that the doors lock and unlock correctly.



MEGANE WITH EARLY REMOTE (LED SWITCHES OFF WHEN HOLDING
BUTTON DOWN)

1. Igniton ON

2. Press and hold the central locking button for 5 seconds

3. LED on the dash board will go off, come back on and begin to flash.
The flashes correspond to the first digit of the 4 PIN security code
release the button when the first digit has been "flashed" and then
press the button again.

4. Wait for the second digit to be "flashed" then release and re-press
the button continue until all digits have been entered.

5. If you have entered the code correctly the LED will then go out and
the car can be started to code the remote, switch off the ignition and
press the central locking button again.

6. Press remote button 2 times within the immediate vicinity of the
pick up (in the roof). On some vehicles you may need to switch the
ignition back on to achieve this however.

Hiya mate, is there any chance u could help me? I've got a 2000 Laguna Sport, its the model with RF remote locking. The problem i'm getting is that the fob only works when the Drivers door is open, I did manage to get the fob working by going in throught the front passenger door and lockin it from inside, then i aimed the key through the window at the drivers door, the hazards flashed, doors unlocked, and it was fine then until i went away from the car. There are new batteries in the both fobs. I've spoke to a fitter at my local Renault dealership and he reckons my ECU is the problem. Do u have any ideas?

Thanks in advance,
Ian

Hello guys, i'm new to this forum and been reading carefully your posts on this subject. There seems to be quite a bit of confusion here. I have the original service/technical manual cd´s from Renault and it cover´s all cars till 2004. The manual states that the procedures above is for re-sinchronising the remotes only! Is thr frequency is alredy programed in the car and the remote goes out off sync with it. It is NOT for peogramming a new remote frequency in to the car. The ONLY way to do it is with the diagnostic computer at Renault or a dealer that has one. You can onle program 2 remotes at once. As for programing the car to acept a new key (transponder chip) it can ONLY be done on the diagnostic computer too, and you can program up to 4 keys, witch is kind of dumb IMHO as if you shoud be alowed to program 4 remotes as well. So that saied you can buy a key on e-bay (will save you about £90) but you still have to spend some to get the car programmed to the key.
Cheers.

Note: this is for RF fobs, i dont know if it´s the same for IR ones

jorgemncardoso
7th March 2007, 01:42 PM
Hello again, once i've read this guy's explanation on the key/immo. issue and it clarifies this very well. Quote:

"Each transponder chip has a unique code which is guaranteed to never exist in another transponder. So every single transponder has a different code. To add a key to the car, you put the immobiliser into learning mode and instruct it to accept some keys as valid.

So for example, imagine your car originally had two keys with transponder codes ending 1110 and 6326 (note the real code numbers are actually very long) The cars ECU (central computer unit) is told to remember these two codes as OK to start the engine. If it see any other codes (or no code) it will not start.

Now you lose one key (1110) and go to the dealer for a new key. He will put the immobiliser into learn mode, clear out all the existing keys and instruct it to read the codes from the original key and the new key he shows it and remember them as valid. Now the immo has two codes stored, the original 6326 and the new one, lets say 8889. You see, the transponder codes themselves can not change, they are built in at the transponder factory. it's the car that is told to remember valid codes and reject invalid ones.

I was trying to say that as far as the car is concerned, when it is put into learn mode it does not care whether the keys are new or second hand. So the answer to your question is yes, a used transponder will be OK since it is the car that needs programming and not the key." End quote.

Hope that helps in any way.
Regards.

Hi Mike, I have a 98 Megane coupe. The other day the key fob stopped working. It has always been abit doggey since I got the car a couple of years ago, you have to be right up close to the car for the central locking to work. Anyway, I changed the batteries and still nothing. Any advice would be greatfully recieved.

Hi Folks okay so If it's a card then it's RF and if it's a key with a button it's IR?

Much simpler with my wifey's VW ? but Bro in law has a 1.9 DCI that will hold the immo code for a day and then drop it????

Strange we fitted a new battery and did the reprogram same again?

Any ideas Folks?


Been readin a bundle of posts it's about time Renault wised up and helped their buyers.
Anyway I see there are RF ordinary keys too! What a Feckin nightmare Bring back the MkI Escorts I say!

25th April 2007, 10:12 PM
Two things worry me in these posts.

Firstly, I hope that "fixed" codes are not used to open doors, allow the car to start etc but rolling codes -i.e. each open/close operation follows a sequence and thus uses a different code. Otherwise it would be a simple excercise of snooping the rf signals to establish the codes & simply replay them to open/steal the car.

Secondly, if it is so easy to reprogram a car to take a new key, why can't a thief simply break in and reprogram the car to any Renault key he happens to have before stealing the car?

I'm sure that must be more to it - at least in the case of the cardkeys or Thatcham wouldn't give them Cat. 3 status? I know the Espace alarm is pretty useless but I though the immobiliser was decent.

Hello all, just updating my info about programing you car to accept new keys. After talking to my dealer i found out that what i've explained in this thred about buying keys and programing the car accept them only works for cars after 2002, with the keys that have the small bettery fitted on the circuit board. Cars before 2002 have keys with the larger battery on the the other half of the key, will have to get the codes from Renault at France. So if you have a model after 2002 and buy a used key you shouldn't have a problem getting your immobiliser programmed to acept that key. I'm putting as an attachment to this reply a copy of the Renault service manual. It's in word and with no immages cause i could not upload the original pdf file due to thr forum uploading restritions, i hope this info help some one :)

Mike, Any chance of the resync instructions for a Laguna II with RF Key Card. I've taken mine apart to resolder the Lock Microswitch. The LED lights up and the card works the ignition, but now neither of the buttons operate the locks (Unlock did before I started). Instructions for resyncing IR keys doesn't work so I think mine was on the cusp of RF/IR. Of course I may have just screwed it up completely by thinking I could do it myself! Cheers, Iain

Keycards are not programmable - each card is unique and the car is programmed to suit. They are known to fail either through faulty switches but on many occasions it's usually a cracked solder joint.

Mike4369, can you help me PLEASE.

I have a Clio Mk2 year: 2000 on a V reg

Problem I have is the central locking and the alarm isnt working, the immobiliser seems to be working ok.

I dont think I have the IR remote/alarm blip (no IR light in the front of the remote), its got a red light to the top right of the button you press when you want to unlock the car. I also dont have the IR bulb in the ceiling near the sunroof, I have 2 sensors in the front window.

Here is where it starts to get a little wierd.....

I bought this car for my wife on the 4th of August, it came with 2 keys/blips and upon getting home I noticed that one of the blips didnt work so put it on the work surface to sort in the near future. On a few occasions I had a slight problem starting the car, took maybe 2/3 attempts but started ok.

On Wednesday I get a call from my wife saying she couldnt start the car, told her to stop turning the engine over and to lock and then unlock the car with the remote and then try starting it. After 3 go's she told me that the central locking had stopped working. Its now 4 days on and the central locking and the alarm isnt working.

Funny thing is that the key/blip that didnt work will now turn the immobiliser off and start the car but wont unlock/lock the central locking or arm the alarm??? The key that I was using when I bought the car wont work....it wont turn off the immobiliser???

If you know a way to programme the key/blip thats not working and get the central locking and alarm working again I would be most gratefull.

Thanks for your reply Mike, will let ya know how I get on, will have to wait until the wife gets home around 9pm.

PS one thing im not too shure on, when it says....

"3. When this happens, 10 seconds is allowed and the immobiliser warning light illuminates."

That mean you have to wait 10 seconds or you have to do whats below before the 10 seconds run out????

hi i just did my 97 laguna
this is how to retune your blip key to your car.
lock all doors/windows, using the switch on the center consul,
hold down the switch on consul (the one next to the handbrake) for more than 5 seconds :note the doors should lock then unlock.
when this happens 15 seconds is allowed and the immobiliser warning light illuminates
point 1st key at the reciever and press button twice, the doors should lock and unlock
thats all there is to it, also the same for the safrane

I NEED HELP PLEASE>

I have a 1.2 Renault CLio 2002

The 'Clicker' in my key became loose so I could not activate the central locking from my key. I opened It up and found that if i placed the 'clicker' back in its rightful flace and clicked it the key would work. I beleieve the soldering that held it was weak and no longer held it.

So today I used super glue to stick the clicker back in ts rightful place so i can use my key to lock the car. After doing this my key loked the car.

HOWEVER when just trying to start my car the engne wont turn over and the flashing red light between the speedometer and the rev counter began to flash rapidly.

ALso I have only one key, when i bought this the dealer only had one key for it.

What is wrong with my car, does it need re programming or is it something else.

I would appreciate any help please.

THank you.

I have the same problem as a number of people on this thread, I've purchased a 2nd hand Scenic (54 plate) and my second keycard doesn't seem to work, even with a replaced battery. Do any of the suggested resynchronising methods apply to the scenic (new style) (I am not sure whether i could make things worse by trying the wrong method).

likely fault is with a dodgy solder connection on the IR LED you'll have to take the key apart and check I had a similar prob on my Scenic.

a handy tip. to see if the remote key is sending a signal to the sensor in the car. on a mobile phone select the camera and point the remote at the camera as if to take a photo. press the remote and if it is working ok the you will see what looks like a white light flash in the lens of the remote. if no light then you have a bad connection or flat batteries. this may save some time pulling a remote apart

have you tried using the method I've posted ( please trawl thro the forum) if that doesn't work there may be a fault with the IR LED, it sometimes needs resoldering onto the circuit board, needs a deft hand and a small iron.
best of luck

4th December 2007, 10:50 AM
Hi mike,

I've tried loking at the fob to see if the led nedds resoldering i've even taken them to the renault garage they said they are sending a signal so it cant be that i've also checked my IR Receiver and that looks fine no water damage i can't see anything on how to reprogram the fobs if thats what it is also i've argued with the renault garage and the main dealer to see if i can get the emergecy 4 digit code that will bypass the th immobiliser not sure if it will bypass the alarm but the y are refusing to gaive it to they also said that i need to take it to them so thay can have a look at it incurring in a charge they also said that they would change the IReceiver first and still charge me for it even if thats not the problem then it could be the decode unit that would cost 300 plus labour plus th IR and plus the dianogstics test which in total could cost around 600 in total its only a N-REG 1995 Laguna.

Hi all,

I purchased my Laguna ('96) a few months back and have only now noticed that the second key fob does not operate the central locking etc. I recall the chap that sold it to me saying he had changed the battery and am assuming that he never recoded it to the car.

Anyone know how I do this? Is it one of the fun one's whereby you have to turn the key left right etc...?

Thanks in advance.....

Hi I have ownly returned this week after having the grand children away down Bewdley from 24 of July until the first of September and then having to go through all the computers having some repaired and others reloaded it was as if everything went at once.

Now to come back to key fobs I have a renault espace 1998 I had to buy a second key for it as there was only one now according to how most things on this site if you lose the codeing you have to buy a new fob as they cannot be reprogramed not sure why this but it seems if you have the radio type it works on rotating signals.
Now I appeared to lose the code out of one of the keys as the batties went flat and I took them out found I had no spares and left it open with no batties when I got some put them in and although the light in the fob was flashing it would not work I kept trying now and again.
My freind was up here the other day and he want to have a lookk at it he said if I kept pushing the putton it should eventually come back into alinment any way he took the batteries out and took the little card out to show me the piece that hold the number or code put the key together pushed the buttona few times and said it should work we went down stairs he opened the door it must have been unlocked while we playing around with the fob so he tried several time and low and behold its WORKING so all I can say is happy playng unround until you drop lucky the only other way is to try and have recoded into the car
Best of luck John.

Hello guys, i'm new to this forum and been reading carefully your posts on this subject. There seems to be quite a bit of confusion here. I have the original service/technical manual cds from Renault and it covers all cars till 2004. The manual states that the procedures above is for re-sinchronising the remotes only! Is thr frequency is alredy programed in the car and the remote goes out off sync with it. It is NOT for peogramming a new remote frequency in to the car. The ONLY way to do it is with the diagnostic computer at Renault or a dealer that has one. You can onle program 2 remotes at once. As for programing the car to acept a new key (transponder chip) it can ONLY be done on the diagnostic computer too, and you can program up to 4 keys, witch is kind of dumb IMHO as if you shoud be alowed to program 4 remotes as well. So that saied you can buy a key on e-bay (will save you about 90) but you still have to spend some to get the car programmed to the key.
Cheers.

Note: this is for RF fobs, i dont know if its the same for IR ones

this man is spot on you can get a new chip done for around 30 quid have a look at flashing red lights on dash the number of the man is there

Did either of the keycards work correctly since you have had the car?

The keycard system cannot be programmed or reprogrammed without the aid of a Renault compatible code reader or security software.

A local locksmith may be able to assist so it may be worth phoning around.

It may be possible to have the buttons repaired on the one card which permits starting.
