How can I lock a renault megane 56 plate without the key card as it is not working

Locking/Unlocking the doors from the outside
This is done using the RENAULT Card; see the "RENAULT Card" information in Section 1.
In certain cases, the RENAULT card may not work:
- if the RENAULT card battery is weak, flat, etc.
- if equipment operating on the same frequency as the card (mobile phones, etc.) is used;
- vehicle located in a high electromagnetic radiation zone.
It is then possible:
- to use the key integrated into the card to unlock the front left-hand door;
- to lock each of the doors manually;
- to use the interior door locking/unlocking control (refer to the following pages).
Using the key integrated in the RENAULT card
Insert key 1 into the lock in the driver's door and lock or unlock. Locking the doors manually
Turn screw 2 with the door open (using the end of the key) and close the door.
This means that the doors are then locked from the outside.
The doors may then only be opened from the inside or by using the key in the front left-hand door. Interior locking/unlocking door control
Switch 3 controls the doors, boot and, depending on the vehicle, the fuel filler flap simultaneously.
If a door or the tailgate is open or not closed properly, the doors and tailgate lock/unlock quickly.
If you need to transport objects with the boot open, the other opening elements can still be locked: with the engine stopped, press switch 3 for more than five seconds to lock the other opening elements.
Locking the doors without the RENAULT card
For example, in the event of a discharged battery or the RENAULT card temporarily not working, etc.
With the engine switched off and an opening element (door or boot) open, press and hold switch 3 for more than five seconds.
When the door is closed, all the doors and the tailgate will be locked.
Unlocking the vehicle from the outside is only possible with the RENAULT card in the vehicle's access zone or using the key integrated in the RENAULT card.
Door and tailgate status indicator
With the ignition on, the warning light integrated in switch 3 informs you of the locking status of the opening elements:
- indicator light on, the doors and tailgate are locked,
- indicator light off, the doors and tailgate are unlocked.
When you lock the doors, the indicator light remains lit and then goes out.

How do i remove the steering lock on a renault meganneII with a broken key card and a damaged card key reader ?

The only way to get it out is by unscrewing the ESL and at same time applying force downwards while unscrewing,its the opposite of screwing,remember u have to tighten to unscrew.Its a bit hard ,cause the lock has not disengaged and sometimes u have to replace the screw.remember u have to remove all the panel to access the esl,which u can then unscrew.ive done this many time w/o removing the whole steering.unscrew while applying force downwards using a small end spanner.,pliers.

I can lock the doors on my 2002 renault laguna but can' unlock them with the key card

I presume you have the grey key card, do you have a second key card with the same problem, and when you press the the unlock button does it feel a bit flat comparison with the lock button, if this is the case then you're going to have to order a new card key from renault.
All working card keys must be present when reprogramming a new card because of the new code entered to immobiliser renders cards not programmed useless.
I Hope I helped to share some light on this matter.

Got a renalt scenic. key said change battery in the key and i did but it is still saying it.and cant open the doors or lock them properly

A common problem when changing batteries of key cards is that most people normally place the batteries the wrong way round, I've seen this before many times, removed the side key from the card and remove the battery and place it the other way round, if this still does not work then the card must be faulty, taking this into consideration your car will still start up even without a battery installed, the battery is only used for central locking.

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
