Keys damaged by chipping Keys
If your Renault comes with a transponder, it’ll only activate when you insert the correct key. This helps to prevent car theft by stopping the engine from starting if an unapproved key is used.
The chip has an individual serial number that matches that of the computer of your car. When you insert the new ignition key it sends an alert to the immobiliser and it then confirms that the chip’s code matches the one in the system. If the match is confirmed, then your car will then allow fuel flow, turning of the starter motor, or whatever else it may need to do.
If the key isn’t able to send an appropriate match or isn’t acknowledged by the immobiliser system, the car will not start and will enter an forced safety lockout, which usually lasts three to four minutes. You will not be permitted to drive your car once this happens and you will need an additional key.
For a new key, you’ll need to visit your local car locksmith. They will be able to identify the cut needed for your particular vehicle. Once they have these, they can then make a duplicate copy of the key. They can also program the replacement key to start your car.
Renault key cards are very different from chipped keys, however they function the same way. The card is inserted into the car’s dash panel, and when the key button is pressed it will unlock the car, and when the engine button is pressed, it will start the vehicle. The key card can be encrypted so that you have access to specific areas inside a building. This will block anyone else from driving your car or entering certain areas of your office.
The issue with these types of keys is that over time the plastic card can degrade or internal mechanisms can bend or crack. You’ll see a message that reads “card cannot be detected” on the dash, or perhaps there is a blank screen. This indicates that the card has failed and requires replacement.

This saves you having to visit the Renault main dealer and wait for them to order your replacement key in from France.

Key fobs today come with more functions beyond locking and unlocking. Certain fobs have the ability to remotely open and shut the doors of the car and to start the vehicle. Other fobs have a button which rolls down the windows, and still others allow drivers to summon and auto-park their vehicle.
Certain of these features may be activated by pressing the buttons on the key fob in quick succession. The fobs are equipped with security features that stop their signals from being copied and intercepted. If you’ve lost a key fob, it may be possible to obtain an alternative from the manufacturer, but it may be more expensive than you imagine.
Renault also offers keys that slot into the dash panel’s card reader. The cards emit an electronic code that allows drivers to unlock the doors and start the engine. The insurance company can pay for the cost of replacing the lost key card. However, it won’t contribute to your policy’s deductible.

Some people are mistakenly thinking that transponder key fobs and transponder keys work the same way. Understanding the differences between the two will make it easier to comprehend their purposes. A transponder key is used to unlock the car doors, it is also needed to start the engine. This is done by sending a signal through the microchip in the key to the engine. The microchip will determine the vehicle’s unique serial number, and then shut off the immobilizer.
