About Renault keys and cards
Renaults are a a fairly complex system as far as the immobiliser and keys go. Without getting into too much technical detail all you will need to know is that there are two broad types of system that effect the way a replacement key will need to be programmed. Early models (typically up to around 2000) work with a key that can’t be programmed to the car by simply plugging a tester and pushing a button. On these systems it will be necessary to remove whats not as an Eeprom chip from the immobiliser and use specialist tools and software to write new key information into the car allowing it to start.
The other type of system is slightly more straight forward in terms of of coding and replacing Renault keys. We use laptop based software to communicate with the cars computer and program in new keys. This is all done through the cars diagnostic socket and is a much quicker task.
Some Renaults use a key card which is very different in appearance to most other car keys. A Renault key card works in the same way as a key but does not need to be turned in the door lock to open the car. Starting of the engine is also quite unique – the card is slotted into a dash panel card reader and requires a button to be pressed to make the car start.
Tip from The Car Key Geek
Renault key cards are fitted with an emergency key blade that can be used to unlock and open the door in the event the buttons fail to operate. There is a lock fitted to the passenger next to the door handle. It may be concealed under a plastic cap that will need to removed to gain access.

We regret we don not currently offer a Renault key card repair service. renault cards are renowned for becoming temperamental and failing to either unlock or start the car. Some online companies offer a fix for these problems, but we will only be able to offer you a complete replacement for your Renault key or card.
A quick note on Ebay Renault Cards – BEWARE! – There are lots of eBay shops offering Renault key cards for sale. Many of these cards are old cars from another car with a replacement case, made to look new. Once the card is programmed to a car it can not be programmed to another Renault – they are locked and useless. Be Careful. We do not program Renault cards and keys purchased from online shops. We only program our own keys.
