The two exact things I thought, I will say that cards can be repaired, I had one done recently all the buttons and immobiliser chip resoldered onto the board and it now works fine for only £25. There are more and more places where cards can be reprogrammed too.Hi Thanks for the advice i shall try this, i did however speak to a rather nice chap at my local renault garage, who told me he had one in with the same issue last week and is only one of two things:
1, Faulty Card Reader Just Wiggle the card
2, Somthing inside of the card broken
£130 New key and recoding or £90 and they will supply the key coded and i can do it myself if i like, very very helpful any issues i suggest you phone William A Lewis Renault Shrewsbury 01743 450030
I have a feeling that this is going to be a long thread:dHi all bought a 51 laguna off ebay problem it has is the immob light is flashing rappid and the steering lock wont come off is there any things i could try to solve this ?
