Question about 2005 Renault Megane Scenic

1 Answer

Is it possible to get a replacement reader and card/s from a dismantler's for a 2005 Renault Scenic? Thanks Frances

I'm nearly sure my card reader is broken, as there are bits of a clear coloured plastic frame inside the card slot that are visible. Is it possible to get a replacement reader and cards from a dismantler's and get it recoded to my car? I've heard that a replacement card reader could cost me close to 1000 euro, half the current value of the car. Thanks Frances

You have been informed correctly. All you can do is to shop around and also to try independent automotive locksmiths as £150 for programming is a bit steep. If the price is for a new card AND reprogramming then it's a fair price as the cost is often over £200.

Sorry, but there are no shortcuts or quick fixes for this: if there were it wouldn't be a good security system.

Card reader saying card reader fault

Sorry here but there is no other alternative than to call the dealer ,try the spare card but if that doesnt work then its a renault only garage ,its all encrypted software and has to be connected via the internet to the factory so expect a bill for a new card reader plus labour and then programming and do not expect much change out of around a 1000 euros
