Hi sosa and welcome to the forum,
If you go on search and type "immobiliser" you will find enough there for a book? (What works on one car doesn`t seem to work on another), This seems to be bit of a running theme with Renaults. I`ve also found that no matter how stupid the question somebody will try to help.

hi
its been a while since ive done this but this is what i can make from my notes
open plip unit up if there is no sticker or a sticker with 5 or 7 characters then this will not work. If it has 8 then this might be worth a try.

1) with the ignition switched of all doors closed but unlocked press the master switch (central locking) for more than 5 seconds

.......................DOORS NOW LOCKED......................................

2)then within 10 to 15 secs press the lock unlock button(plip) once (twice on some models) them security system door locks should operate each time so there is no way to know but by trying

......................system should now have reset.........................

hope this helps

Ev

Does the red light on your key works when you press the button? if not, i guess the battery inside the key is dead. easy to change.
If its ok, do you have two keys? tried them both?

Yoy can try to recode your key, your manual should tell you how to. On my 2000 mod i have to be in the car, press the button for 10 sec, until the light on the key stops, and then press the button two more times. but check the manual on your '98.

You can also try to cut out the power from your cars battery, wait 30 sec, and connect it again.

any luck?
