Key fob lights up but doesn't work even with a new battery

Hi

My key fob for renault clio is not working. I thought it was the battery so i opened it up and replaced it with a new battery and it still isnt working. The central locking buttomn inside the car works and i can still drive with the key. It lights up red when i press the fob but doesnt lock or unlock the car.
Any idea whats wrong?
Thank you

I'm more familiar with Range Rovers and Saab's when it comes to key fobs but if you changed the battery you have to re-program the key fob. If you do not have an owner's manual that can take you through the steps you might want to try: push and hold the lock button on the key fob, put it in the driver's side door and turn to lock. With the button still depressed turn back to open, remove the key and release the button. If this doesn't work check any and all fuses associated with your system and last but not least you could take it to a dealer. Good luck!

Renault clio problem


I have to say that the simplest would be to call AA, they're usually quite adept at opening bonnets if the battery is dead (preventing access to the bonnet release).

I had a problem where my key fob did not lock or unlock the car, Renault Clio Dynamique, but the central locking button in the car did still work and engine turned over fine. Changed the key fob battery still nothing. Read online about disconnecting and reconnecting the car battery, (negative only) and hey presto it worked! All working fine now!

The key fob on my renault clio has stopped working have replaced the battery but still nothing...any ideas rather than just getting a new one for £150.00


Open the key carefully and check the electronics. Unless the tactile switch is damaged and needs replacement, check the quality of the solder on all components. This is prone to failure over time.

How do you reset the key fob on a renault clio 1.2 billabong after changing the batteries in key fob?


The keyfob should not need reseting! normally you put the new batteries in and it should just work.

If the fob is not working then it may be broken.

Renault key fob doesnt work


Hi.
I have a clio II, 2001, i have the same problem and i fixed it.
Don't know if will work for you but here it goes:

1 - no key in ingnition
2 - press the unlock button in console off the car for about 10 seconds(dont let go)
3 - it should work the central doors one time and then 2 times( hear)
4 - press the remote a few times until it starts working

It worked for me hope the same for you.
Please tell me if it worked and pass the message.

Good luck
