Well your FOB REMOTE Battery could be dead, try replacing it
on you lock cylinder, sounds like the clip that holds it fell off, broke or rusted off ? You have to take your inside door panel off to check this, there are screws and clips that hold your door panel on, some screws are around your arm rest, inside door handle, and there might also be some around the panel itself, the clips are behind the panel, by using a flathead screwdriver you can pry these, by sliding the screwdriver around the panel, but be careful not to crack your panel.
once off, check your door lock cylinder, there should be a U shape clip holding it, if not check the bottom of your door.
if your lock is molded in the plastic door handle, then you have to take this off

Pressing the button on the driver's door will unlock the locks. Key fobs are available from reputable locksmith. They can program them for your vehicle.

SOURCE: the key fob quit locking and unlocking. I have to

the first thing to check is the battery(im sure you already knew that),. next step would be to take down to your nearest rover dealership and ask if there are any upgrades and they may have to reprogram your alarm system which can only be done with there diagnostic equipment.

Key won t unlock doors


lost the other fob>>> ?????
never own a car with 1 fob.
and if one fob messes up, the battery inside is dead. (or worse)
if just lock fails the button is bad, if one fob false, and they do
its just cheezy switch. (can be cleaned)
use the other FOB, if it fails, post.

Wife taken clio to work with the spare key (no button), she has tried to lock the car but only the passenger side locks, the drivers side is unlocked, how can she lock the drivers door?


Hi,

As you have not stated the Year of Manufacture, I will provide the following possibilities:

Firstly, your wife must be using a sub-key (if no remote function). So, you need to determine if this was a factory supplied sub-key, or was a re-cut duplicate of the master key.

Secondly, the 'most used' key will usually wear out over time (and the driver's barrel lock will sometimes wear in accordance with the most used key), which would mean only that key will operate that door barrel lock successfully.

If the sub-key has not worn to the same degree, chances are the sub-key may not be able to engage properly when inserted into the driver's door lock.

This is common when using a sub-key - sometimes a sub-key won't start the car, but turning the key upside down will often operate the ignition. The same principle would apply to the driver's door lock also.

The key will often operate the door lock if you only insert it about 95% of the way , or simply turn the key upside down and try again.

If the key refuses to operate the driver's door, the other alternative is to enter via the passenger side and reach over to lock the driver's door from the inside. Then lock the passenger door behind you.

However, this is a major hassle, so I would recommend you obtain a replacement Renault key "FOB" remote (you can get these off Ebay reasonable cheaply - supplied with instructions) and program it to your vehicle yourself. This will enable both of you to have a central locking remote key fob.

Note: the remote fob programming feature will obvioulsly depend on the year of manufacture for your vehicle though.

My Porsche Key fob no longer unlocks the doors


Insert key into door barrel or ignition lock and turn key, whilst doing this press the unlock/lock button, the led on the dash should flash to indicate this has initialised the key to the car, then remove key and test operation of remote. If this fails then a new remote plus coding to the car by your dealership is needed

I have to lock and unlock my peugeot 406 with a locksmiths key and recently it has become a lottery. The lock barrels in both the drivers and front passenger doors often revolve freely in their housing...


the car has dead locks via the central locking, it is very common on this car, take the drivers side door card trim off and look to see if the motors are connected correctly.

hope this helps. most likely you will have to change the drivers side motor.
