Question about Renault R5
It is Renault Megane Scenic 1.6 Petrol manual. It does not start, and the red light of immobiliser on the panel flashes. I usually press the button on the key twice after entering the car, and then start it, and it used to start, but the same does not work now.Could you please help.
Most common cause is your key fob is broken.

Undo the plastic casing around the ignition.
Its only around 4 screws easy.
look around the barrel where you insert the key, there should be a black plastic ring around 3 inches down the barrel this is the key reader its not fixed so twist gently and slide up the barrel as close to the key as the wires attached will allow.
then try starting, if it works then the transmitter in the key is most likely deteriorated . if it works its only a quick fix and could deteriorate in time.
a new key and coded from Renault is £300 with no guarantee that its not a different fault so look at buying one of ebay and get that paired to the immobiliser.
there is another way of bypassing the immobiliser by removing a ball bearing in the fuel pump a bit more complex.
