I can not open Renault Laguna 2003 car with card open button


Hi
You can use the key, built into the card, via the passenger door handle.
The car will start even if there is no battery in the card, it works on a transponder system.
Try changing the battery in the card, Halfords sell them etc.
If you fit a new battery and it still does not work, its more than likely that the button inside the card has a dry joint/bad connection on the circuit board. This can be fixed but the fix is not exactly easy. You need to split the card in half with a sharp knife, the cards are melted togethor. When you have split the card you need a soldering iron to re-wet the joints on the little button switch. You need to DIY confident to do this. Super glue the card back togethor. It never looks brilliant but it saves £140 for a new card from Renault. Good Luck
