What is wrong with my key card?
At some point all Renault owners will ask themselves this exact question. The reasons behind asking yourself this question maybe different, but the answer is always the same. The key card is not working, and you need to replace it. The initial symptoms of your Renault key card developing a fault may vary. It may be that the card stops locking and unlocking your Renault, or you keep getting a message on your dashboard asking you to change the battery, despite changing the battery the message still appears, in worst case you are unable to start your car and the message on your dashboard will ask you to insert key card or will simply say ‘card not detected’.
Once you establish that a replacement Renault key card is needed, the search begins. Where to go? Who to trust? How much is it going to cost? How long will I have to wait? We relay on our cars so much these days that when we are unable to use it we may feel very stressed and vulnerable. It is understandable that your first instinct will tell you to use Renault garage, as it will seem like the best and safest option. Unfortunately, few moments after calling the garage, you will realize that getting a replacement key card for your Renault is not going to be as easy and cheap as you hoped it would be. Renault garage will ask you to bring your car over to them and leave it for up to 10 working days, will require all the paperwork and will charge you £180 minimum. It is not so bad if you can still drive your car, but if your Renault key card doesn’t start your car, you will have to tow it to the garage which will generate more costs.
At this point you may want to start to search for alternatives and again this task is not an easy one. You don’t know who to trust, who is a true professional who just pretends to be one. Checking reviews and recommendations is always a good idea but than again good reviews may be easily manipulated. Our advice here is to make few calls, speak to the people and use your common sense and so-called gut in making a decision. If something is too good to be true it most certainly is and offers significantly cheaper than others should be ignored immediately. Even if you have no idea about cars, key cards and how it all works, you should pretend that you do. When a scammer finds out that you are lost and need help they will use it against you.
