Key Card Frequently Asked Questions

I have lost all of my key cards, can you still help?
Yes! We offer an emergency key card replacement service, where we come out to you and supply and programme a replacement key card at the roadside.

I just need a spare key card, can you help?
Absolutely, most of our jobs are where customers just need a spare and would like to take advantage of our convenient mobile service.

How long does it take?
Most jobs are completed within 30 minutes of arrival, however we generally ask you to allow an hour.

I am getting the error “Key Card Not Detected” can you help?
Yes! This is a common fault and we can help with this error message.

Are your key cards genuine from Renault?
Absolutely! Our key cards come from Renault, therefore you are getting the same product as you would get from the dealer … just faster … and we come out to you!

Is there a cheaper alternative?
Yes, we also supply after market key cards – please ask for more information.

I need a replacement Renault card reader can you help?

Yes! We keep Renault card readers on board, please call for a price.

Do you carry out Renault key card repairs?
When repairs are carried out to key cards, this is only a temporary fix – therefore we do not get involved with key card repairs as we see this as false economy. We can quote to supply and programme a new key card for you.

Button failure – We have found that the buttons can fail on these cards. You may have found sites on the web that advertise a repair service for Renault key cards. This option is fine if you are looking for a short term fix, but if not, it can be false economy. Many customers have found that after a while the repair fails – this is not due to the repaired buttons, but with the immobiliser chip (inside the card) which starts the car.

I have ordered a key card from Ebay, can you programme it?
Key cards are designed for one time use, when they are programmed to a vehicle, they cannot be re-programmed to another one. Most key cards on Ebay have already been programmed, therefore reprogramming is not possible if this is the case.

What guarantee is included?
Our products are guaranteed for 6 months (genuine key cards) or 3 months for our after market versions.  Please see our terms and conditions for full information to see what is not included (e.g. water damage and consumables i.e. batteries)

Renault Clio, Kangoo & Master Remotes

For the Renault Clio, Kangoo and Master vehicles there are two different types of remote key which are either pre-coded or Virgin. Both remote types must be bought new (will not work if it has been programmed to another vehicle). Pre-coded was used on pre-facelift Clio’s (1999 to 2001), Kangoo’s (1999 to 2002) and Master’s (1999 to 2003).

Immobiliser Failure on Renault Clio, Master & Kangoo  – There is a transponder chip on a circuit board just inside the key.  We have experienced that the chip can easily break or becomes corrupt.  We can test to see if a signal is being recieved from the transponder chip. If the card is damaged we can supply a new card and programme it to your vehicle – saving you a long wait with your dealer!  Please complete our online form and we will get back to you with a quote.

Button failure – We have found that the buttons can fail on these cards. You may have found sites on the web that advertise a repair service for Renault key cards.
