New Renault key card

Renault have been using key cards for quite a while now. The Laguna and Espace models have been using them since 2001/2002. The Megane and Scenic models since 2003/2004. More recently models such as the Clio, Koleos and VelSatis also use key cards.

Unfortunately these cards are prone to faults and breaking due to their slim, plastic outer casing, which¬† makes it easy in daily life to bend and drop them. Usually on a Megane or Scenic the problem that arises is that the buttons work fine but when you insert it in to the card reader it displays, ‘card not detected.’ Sometimes if you wiggle or bend the card while its in the reader it will read the transponder and will start, however this will only work a few times before the problem gets worse.

The Laguna and Espace two button cards have a problem where the lock button randomly stops working.

In any case, we advise to get the key card replaced as soon as possible. We can replace the cards for you and we only use genuine key cards. You can book our team to pop round to you and we can supply and program a new key card there and then. The dealer usually takes two to three weeks and you are required to drive to them and leave your car for an afternoon. Our service it done at your convenience and takes around 20 minutes.

Car keys replaced… On the spot!!!

Our dedicated auto locksmith team are number 1 when it comes to replacing car keys. We thrive in being the quickest and cheapest around. Our engineers specialize in replacing lost car or van keys all over the South-East. To give you an idea on how we operate- if you had lost car keys in Sunbury, we could be with you within ten minutes and have your car keys replaced within half an hour. All this at a fraction of the cost of the main dealer. Most dealers have to order your key in, which can take up to three weeks! They then require you to have your car towed to them so they can then carry out the necessary programming. Sounds like a whole lot of work, when you could have it done within an hour eh?

Most drivers don’t realise that legally, since 1998, manufacturers have had to install immobilisers on all cars and vans. Which means that your car key most likely has a very small chip inside it called a transponder. When you insert your key in the ignition, an aerial around the ignition reads the information held on your transponder. If this transponder has not been diagnostically programmed to your car, then it will not start. Our team carry the most advanced programming equipment to enable us to program keys to almost any car. Look out for our car locksmith in Staines, Hounslow, Heathrow and Surrey.

Have you got a spare car key? Did you know that we always offer special prices and discounts on spare car keys in the Surrey and Middlesex areas? This could save you time and money, should you ever lose or break your existing key. Perfect if you need a car key replacement in Sunbury, Hounslow, Staines, Heathrow or Hillingdon.
