    It still will unlock the car but only occasionally. The trunk is also a problem. Dealership is no help.

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.

Hi Lesley,
on the Renault clio there is a safety button which is located on the left side inner wing close to the fire wall. Press it to become ready to start. Probably it is the fault

Central locking wiring clio


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!

Alarm system has stopped working on my x reg 4.0 cherokee jeep.Both key fobs have new batterys, was ok, up and till brakes where replaced recently.Jeeps battery showing charged.Alarm still wont work having...


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??

The key fob on my renault clio has stopped working have replaced the battery but still nothing...any ideas rather than just getting a new one for £150.00


Open the key carefully and check the electronics. Unless the tactile switch is damaged and needs replacement, check the quality of the solder on all components. This is prone to failure over time.

How do you reset the key fob on a renault clio 1.2 billabong after changing the batteries in key fob?


The keyfob should not need reseting! normally you put the new batteries in and it should just work.

If the fob is not working then it may be broken.

Renault key fob doesnt work


Hi.
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.

Good luck

Key fob lights up but doesn't work even with a new battery


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!
