    Thank's for your reply (MrScary66613) regarding my Renault Magane's power steering, there no overheating or anything like that, and the power steering fluid level is fine. Do you know where the power steering pump is located on the engine and if is belt driven? Many thank's.

Stiff steering when not moving,

Look in the Owner's Manual on how to check the Power Steering fluid. Also the belt may need adjusted or replaced.

Sounds to me that your cable is broke therefor not putting the car in gear. This can happen real easy. Have someone move the shifter for you and look at the side of your trans and see it the cable is moving. If not then you can do a visible inspection of it and see if it is broke.

How can i find a immo code for my magane coupe

their is no way on this planet as far as i know its a renault remember ,these cars use encrypted software and are connected via the internet from a dealer to the factory who shuts line then recalls the dealer to confirm who they are .on older models is was possible to shut off the immobilisor providing you had the key ,start engine and cut the third wire on the transponder reader box behind the kicker plate .but a newer model you stand no chance not even a bosch or bear machine can make this vehicle start without the chip in the key .So its a tow truck to the dealer and smile when they give you a bill that you could buy a new car for .Sorry for being such a pessimist

I am unable to operate the lock from the outside

Can you still open the door from inside? if so then most likely the metal bar that connects the door lock to the mechanism has come off, you will have to remove the interior "door trim/ door card" so you can see on the inside of the door, sometimes it is just a small plastic gromit that cracks and fall's into the bottom of the inside of the door. these are about £4 each from renault and it's an easy job to do your self.

Is the key stiff in the lock? or is the lock just spinning? if it is stiff then most likely the lock is at fault if the lock just spins round and does not open the door then the fault is more likely the mechanism inside the door or the forementioned gromit.

If you need any help with the door trim let me know and i will talk you through it. it's fairly easy even for a novice.
