Megane key fob wont work

Hi there,
I changed the batteries in my key fob for a Renault Megane 1999 E RT 1.4, the light comes on the fob when you press the button but it wont turn off the immobiliser and the remote central locking doesn't work either.
I dont know why it wont work?
Someone suggested that i turn ignition on and press button on key for 10 secs and that should fix it but it hasn't.
Will I need to get a new key??
Any help or info would be great!
Thanks

The lazer bulb has snapped off inside your key fob

open it up... move the blubs pins to the revers side of the chip board and solder it to the nipples

make sure you dont turn the bulb as + / - will be the same on ither side of the chip board

I need to sync the ecu on my renault megane 2005 estate 1.9 diesel, I have seen a link on here a while back but unable to find it now, could anyone help please and/or post the link for me. Thanks very


Mine did that and it was caused by the release being gummed up. I pressed against the lid while activating the fob. Releasing the pressure allowed it to operate. Failing that, can you open with the key (again, releasing the pressure)? I hope this is helpful.

I changed the batteries in the key fob of my renault megane scenic and now it does not work and i cant start the car, can i bypass this? the year of the car is 1999.


i have not tried this myself but i have been reliably informed that it should work on the 99 renaults

With ignition off, press and hold the key fob button, after about 10 seconds the light on the key will stop flashing, press the key fob button three times and if the key will resyncronise it will at this point operate the locking system.

Imobliser on my renault megane cabriolet 1998 r reg wont turn off


the pins on the lazer bulb in your keyfob has snapped off caused buy pressing the button too hard. (the red light will still come on but the key wont work)

heres what to do

open your keyfob and pull the lazer bulbs pins to the other side of the chip board. solder it to the wrong side where you see the nipples (dont worry there still in the right place) and shove a bit of bog roll in there to stop the chip board moveing when you press the button

Changed battery in key fob now unable to turn immobiliser off on my renault megane coupe s reg


there will be a combination of button presses required to reconfigure your fob to the immobiliser. you dont need to get it recoded so dont pay for it. try these:
hold the a button down for ten seconds until the light comes on constantly. then press it twice quickly and it will reprogram.
or press lock about ten times, then open ten times. this should work.
i had this problem on a rover and just pressing the buttons loads of times may allow it to be reprogrammed.
also check the battery isnt upside down in the fob.

the key has lost its code. open the doors manually and use the central locking button inside the car. hold it down and keep pressing your key fob. this should re code the key
