Loosing Your Renault Key Card
Loosing your Renault key card can be very stressful, not only you can’t use your car but also you have no idea who might have found it and also if you really lost it or if it was stolen. If you were shopping or maybe just went for a coffee with friends and your Renault key card is nowhere to be found, we strongly recommend going back to your car as soon as possible. If you have parked your Renault on a secure car park, inform the security immediately and above all always stay safe.
Renault key cards are unfortunately very easy to loose due to their small sizes and sleek design. The easiest to loose key cards are those that are made for Renault Espace and Renault Laguna. This is because you can’t attach it to key ring as the rectangle hole on the key card goes into the card reader. On the other hand key cards for Renault Megane or Renault Scenic when attached to house keys very often get damaged by the bulky metal keys. Unfortunately there is no easy fix to this situation and the only advice we can offer is to take a good care of your Renault key card and try to protect it from mechanical damage or loosing by keeping it in your bag rather than in your pockets, you can even put it in your wallet which will protect it much better.
If you have lost your key card and need a replacement Renault key card let us know as soon as you can so we can get to you quickly and sort the problem out for you. Let us know your location, the model and year of your Renault and what’s most important if your car is locked or unlocked. If your car is locked the only way for us of getting inside it without causing any damage is through emergency lock which is located on the front passenger’s door. Let us know if you think the lock is in good working order or you have used it recently and it worked let us know. Older Renaults unfortunately very often have their locks broken or simply not working, in those instances the only solution left is to break one of the windows. It is our last resort but unfortunately it has to be done if you want us to programme a new key card. Believe us, we hate breaking the windows, especially at night on a deserted car park. We always ask our customers to have their logbook with them if we need to brake into their Renault just in case, as we are not to keen on spending the night in custody and we bet that neither are you. So as always better safe than sorry.
Once we get access to your Renault programming a new key card takes few minutes. During the programming we erase all previously stored key cards in the system to prevent possible theft. You can sleep peacefully because even if someone got hold of your key card they won’t be able to start the car as the Renault key card they have has been deactivated. It is also very important for your insurance and for the peace of mind. It all comes down to the simple phrase – better safe than sorry.
