Sorry here but there is no other alternative than to call the dealer ,try the spare card but if that doesnt work then its a renault only garage ,its all encrypted software and has to be connected via the internet to the factory so expect a bill for a new card reader plus labour and then programming and do not expect much change out of around a 1000 euros

Astra twintop 1.8 petrol car turns over but won't start and brake light's permanently on no power to the fuel pump anybody any ideas

Did you check to see if your battery has run down?
If the brake light switch under the pedal is out of adjustment or defective, it could leave brake lights on and could drain your battery to the point that fuel pump may not work.
If it is not the brake light switch, sounds like an engine computer (ECU) problem. Grab a code reader and get any fault readings and check with your local dealer or parts store to see if that is the problem.

Hi i have a 2009 diesel x type jaguar when first starting car i have gearbox fault and car goes into limp mode but after 10 minutes driving when you switch off and restart car everything is fine

When the limp home is engaged by the processor a fault code or codes is set in memory, it may be a Transmission code or engine fault code. You nee it tested with a full function scanner, a code reader will not read the transmission faults.

Mercedes e220 diesel. 2007. engine light illuminated and dtc fault code 2570. any ideas please.

You need to get the fault code read to find the problem. An indie may have a suitable OBD reader. Don't just reset the light as you could have a major problem.

Hi, I recently got my 2005 Audi A4 2.0 TDI serviced by an AUDI garage. They replaced the timing belt and water pump as well. After I left the garage i realised my heating wasnt working correctly....

i would get a water pump from the dealer and install it, In some cases i found that after market water pumps don't have the same clearance between the pump housing and the propeller.this causes less water flow.

When i put my key card in the message says card not detected but when I put something in the slot on top of the card to put weight on it it starts is it the card or the reader? only have one card

hi this sounds more like the reader has come adrift inside the slot, if it was the key card it would not work at all, but it is still reading it, so it looks like the electronic part of the reader is not making contact with the card...hope this helps
