Re: need to replace key fob battery in a clio
The remotes are hard coded. if you are only replacing the batteries they will not need to be recoded. When a remote is programmed it is actually the car that is programmed to accept the remote, the frequency of the remote never changes.

I had a problem where my key fob did not lock or unlock the car, Renault Clio Dynamique, but the central locking button in the car did still work and engine turned over fine. Changed the key fob battery still nothing. Read online about disconnecting and reconnecting the car battery, (negative only) and hey presto it worked! All working fine now!
hold the cetral locking lock all button down until the doors lock and unlock. The imobilser light goes solid red. At this point you have 10 to press the botton on your key 2 times . the doors will unlock and lock.
please explain what year a X registration vehicle is ,as i have no idea ,last one i remember was a T 1978 .Now i think that this alarm fob might need re-programming into the vehicle where you swing on the aerial whilst holding the key fob in teeth and pressing the brake and the FM button on the radio at the same time ,When my all data books arrive next week i might be able to help but yes i have had this problem before and yes we do have these vehicles here in spain but mainly diesels ,now last time it happened when a customer changed the batterys i held the button down on the fob then turned the ignition on and it all sort of bleeped and started working ,but perhaps an american person with more experiance than myself might know how to do it correctly ,Now if you ask me about a humber hawk or a morris minor??
try putting the key in the ignition and turning it to on then holding the unlock button for 30 seconds and then remove the key and try the remote if still no good go to your dealer and get them to reinishalise the system
I have a clio II, 2001, i have the same problem and i fixed it.
Don't know if will work for you but here it goes:
1 - no key in ingnition
2 - press the unlock button in console off the car for about 10 seconds(dont let go)
3 - it should work the central doors one time and then 2 times( hear)
4 - press the remote a few times until it starts working
It worked for me hope the same for you.
Please tell me if it worked and pass the message.
I'm more familiar with Range Rovers and Saab's when it comes to key fobs but if you changed the battery you have to re-program the key fob. If you do not have an owner's manual that can take you through the steps you might want to try: push and hold the lock button on the key fob, put it in the driver's side door and turn to lock. With the button still depressed turn back to open, remove the key and release the button. If this doesn't work check any and all fuses associated with your system and last but not least you could take it to a dealer. Good luck!
