When I inserted my card it reads not detected, I've looked on YouTube with various videos of poking knives
How to re solder the card etc
My question is if I buy a replacement reader do I need the card to go along with it.?

No
The card reader simply reads what is on your card key and passes the information on.
Should be plug and play to replace, no coding or diagnostic settings needed

OK and thanks. So that I understand correctly all I need to do is by a new card and away I go

Not to sound dumb but how do i know what is dead the reader or the card?
You already know.
Card not detected means that the switches inside the reader aren't operating properly.
And I assume you have tried the spare card and got the same result ?
