Having problems with your Renault R5 ?
Hello, i got a messege on control panel that key card battery needs changing, this i did with new batterys ever since its been a nightmare very hit and miss as to it working at all, im worried me and the kids will get locked out its a nightmare, also when i brought the car there was a spare new key with it ive treid this one and it does,nt work at all so im wondering if its possible that the new card needs to be programmed? also will the key card be covered by the warrenty do you think?
I had a Renault Scenic 2005 with same problem, basically I got the correct battery and it fixed the problem, there is no way you will get locked in or out as the key will still work, the second key will not work unless it is programmed by Renault, and second key should actually be without the card just a plain key, anyway on one of the front doors you have a blank cap that can be removed and the door can be opened just with the key without the card. If problem continues you should contact Renault as they only have a special equipment, I know Renault are nice cars but electrics are nightmare.
