tight you replaced the lock barrell so you have new keys ,now inside this key is a chip so remove the chip from the old ley and tape it to teh transponder ,now make sure the chip that was inside the key is removed by whatever means you have to use even drilling it out.Then it will start as what happens is the new lock has the key programmed to a code for instalisation in a new vehicle and the chip in the key is confusing the transponder its a renault remember and they do have a mind of their own in regards to the immobilisor ,if you do as i say it should start if it doesnt then lock and unlock the drivers door three times slowly then jump in quick and start car within 20 secs of the key turning procedure and if that doesnt work then call the dealer and pay through the nose
check the immobilisor ,its a renault and their famous for it try unlocking and locking the door three times slowly then trying to start within 20 secs of the last open ,try the spare key as well as you may have lost the chip out of the key
For your safety and security only the dealer service department can reset any of the security features on the newer model cars. You can't even replace a lost key without providing the VIN number and proper identification. The biggest majority of cars made in the last 10 years have a transponder chip in the key. Sometimes though not often the chips can go bad. Calling the dealer service department can usually clear up if your car is equipped with the transponder. Usually if it's just the chip they can get you fixed up in less than an hour and without to much damage to your checkbook.
hahaha you having a laugh here ,RENAULT ---- immobilisor encrypted software ECU sealed and you break it to get it apart ,now the older renault clios can be turned off if you have a key that works ,you start engine and cut third wire along on the box behind the kicker plate drivers side ,but no key ? sorry dealer only and its expensive and three weeks for the key to arrive from france when the frogs are not on strike or haveing a day off for something ,then the spanish side of the border with siesta, fiesta ,mana?a ,Cant beat a ford
hi the problem you are having is due to the fact that the new key is not programed to your cars immobiliser so if your new key is the same as your old one you need to get it programmed by main dealers, inside the old key their will be a little glass tube that has the chip in that the imobiliser picks up allowing the car to start,
try holding your old key really close to the ignition then start your car and see if it keeps running if it does you have 2 options. either get you new key programmed or get someone who knows about electrics for cars and get them to take your old key apart and remove the chip for imobiliser and then they can glue this where the imobiliser is, this means the cover has to come off the steering wheel and the chip needs gluing to the imobiliser that surrounds the ignition barrel, dont try this yourself as you can damage the chip by forcing it out of the key and it is made of thin glass so is easy to damage your best option would be to get your new key programmed
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.
big problems ,firstly its a renault which means problems with anything electric and factory immobilisor.Secondly encrypted software so i can honestly say that no doubt the fault is with one of the early type of ECU computers and unless you rewired the whole electronic system which i have done on a clio that went like this ,then its dealer only and pay through the nose,or trade the vehicle on plan new for old and get yourself 2000€ for it against a new vehicle
you will probably have to go to renault for there diagnostics as most home bought code reader scanners cant fix renault problems
there is a program available free on the web that tells you how to key a code in that tempory unlocks the imobiliser but as soon as you turn of your ignition it will re imobilise your car
your best bet is to pay about £90 to renault to tell you what the problem is
