It maybe a faulty key card, because the problem you describe is exactly what happens if you insert a brand new un coded key card in to the reader. That is easily checked by trying the spare key card, presuming you have one. The car reader has a 'card present' switch inside it, if that is faulty then the vehicles body ecu may not be 'seeing ' that the card has been inserted. The card reader is not coded to the car, so it is possible to swap one from another car for testing purpose's. try this website to order a key it will save a lot of money i hear. worth looking into. sorry for the problems hope i could help.

    My key fob card wouldn't register in my Megane Scenic, it kept saying 'card not detected'. I tried a few new batteries in the key fob, my car started once for each new battery I put in. I ended up making the key fob thicker by taping a piece of old credit card to the reverse side of the fob- hey presto it worked! When you cut the credit card to size remember to use a piece that doesn't contain the magnetic strip as it could remove the encrypted code.

I have a 2005 renault grand scenic that recently went in the garage for work and has come out with the 'parking brake failure' message on the dashboard. The handbrake is electric and is working perfectly...


A renault tech told me how to reset the electronic parking brake on my grand scenic without going to dealer, this works if you have had to pull the yellow emergency handle in rear which i have had to do this week.

Turn your ignition on without starting engine, have drivers door open and press lock button on keycard
put keycard in reader and press start button for 5 seconds.
pull large part of manual handbrake handle and push small button with red light without letting go of larger handle and you should hear the handbrake motor reset!

That should be it!

Key card not working have replaced battery and still nothing, can get in the car with the emergency key but car wont start or even register the card


Unfortunately the battery is only for the central locking and has nothing to do with your immobiliser, when you place the card into the card reader I presume you get a message saying card not detected for a renault megane or scenic, card is most likely faulty and will need replacing, sometimes if you're lucky you may get the cart to be detected by slightly tapping the card on the floor.
