Question about Renault Megane

1 Answer

Central locking is clicking on and off without key

Each time car engine is switched off and the key remains in slot, but before an attempt has been made to lock the car, the central locking clicks repeatedly. Car battery has been changed in last 6 months and as a consequence the car cannot be locked with the fob without the alarm being disabled. Start button is pressed 5 times. But this new problem has just started. Eventually the clicking ceases and car can then be locked via the 5 press and via the key fob. Any thoughts?

SOURCE: key fob will not undo

If you don't have one that works for the vehicle now, you'll have to take it to your local dealer to have it programmed to the vehicle. Some will charge for this, some will do it at no charge.

If you do have a remote that is programmed and working for the vehicle, then the following steps will allow you to program another remote:

1. Enter vehicle and close all doors.

2. Put seatbelt on (or clip it into the buckle) to shut the warning buzzer off.

3. Put key in ignition, turn to run position but don't start it.

4. Press and hold the unlock button on the working key fob and hold for 4 seconds, then also press the panic button.

5. Release both buttons and you should hear a single chime to indicate it is in program mode. You have 30 seconds after the chime to program any additional remotes you want to program.

6. Press and release both the unlock and lock buttons simultaneously on the remote you are programming. You should hear another single chime.

7. Within 4 seconds after hearing the chime, press either lock or unlock button on remote that you are programming.

Ignition


he ignition switch generally has four positions: off, accessories, on, and start. Some cars have two off positions, off and lock; one turns off the car, and the other allows the key to be removed from the ignition. When the key is turned to the accessories position, certain accessories, such as the radio, are powered; however, accessories that use too much battery power, such as window motors, remain off in order to prevent the car's battery from being drained. The accessories position uses the least amount of battery power when the engine is not running, which is why drive-in movie theaters recommend that the car be left in theaccessories mode during the movie.

The on position turns on all of the car's systems, including systems such as the fuel pump, because this is the position the ignition switch remains in while the car's engine is running. The start position is spring loaded so that the ignition switch will not remain there when the key is released. When the key is inserted into the ignition switch lock cylinder and turned to the start position, the starter engages; when the key is released, it returns to the on position, cutting power to the starter. This is because the engine runs at speeds that the starter cannot match, meaning that the starter gear must be retracted once the engine is running on its own.

Either the ignition switch or the lock cylinder may fail in a car, but both circumstances have very different symptoms. When the ignition switch fails, generally the electrical wiring or the plastic housing develops problems. The car may not turn on and/or start when this happens. Also, the spring-loaded start position could malfunction, in which case the starter will not engage unless the key is manually turned back to the on position.

When the lock cylinder malfunctions, however, the operation of the key itself will become problematic. If the tumblers become stripped, the lock cylinder may be able to turn with any key, or you may be able to remove the key when the car is on. If the tumblers begin to shift, the lock cylinder may not turn. Sometimes the key can be wiggled until the lock cylinder turns, but it is important to remember that this is only a temporary fix.

Replacing an ignition switch can be tricky business, particularly in newer cars, because of the anti-theft devices used in cars. Once the ignition switch is separated from the back of the lock cylinder, the car can be started with a screwdriver, making it vital that this switch be difficult to get to. It is important to consult a shop manual before attempting this kind of repair, as the anti-theft devices may require special tools; attempting to remove an ignition switch without the proper tools can render the car inoperable.

On my bmw2006 330i it seems that the ignition is not really off after stopping the car. After stopping the engine with the start/stop button and removing the remote key from the slot, the button remains...


In your car the engine starts this way: a code stored in the remote key is sent wirelessly to the receiver in the receptacle (thru its coil antenna) which sends it to the ECM to activate it; then the starter button sends the command for the actual starting.
In your case the receiver appears to keep the code in memory when it shouldn't. Have it replaced. BTW this has absolutely nothing to do with the ignition coil.

My 1983 El Camino's ignition, on the steering column, will turn, freely, all of the way through to the end of the path, without engaging the starter. It will still lock into 'lock position' when removing...


In this case it is wise to change out your ignition switch. It sounds like the internals where the key fits into, some of the slots have lost their spring. Luckily you own a classic car that is not hard to take column off and replace it!
