About Renault keys
and cards In terms of anti-theft locks and keys, Renault cars are a rather complicated system. Without going into too many technical details, what you will need to know is that there are two broad systems that affect how the replacement key is programmed. Early models (usually up to 2000) used keys that could not be programmed into the car by simply plugging in the tester and pressing a button. On these systems, it is necessary to remove things that are not Eeprom chips from the anti-theft device and use professional tools and software to write new key information into the car to start it.
Another type of system is more straightforward in terms of encoding and replacing Renault keys. We use laptop-based software to communicate with the car computer and use the new key for programming.
These are all done through the car diagnostic socket, which is a faster task. The key cards used in some Renault cars have a very different appearance from most other car keys. The Renault key card works in the same way as a key, but the car can be opened without opening the door lock.
The starting of the engine is also very unique-the card is inserted into the dashboard reader and a button needs to be pressed to start the car.
