Programming a new Renault key card is relatively fast compared to other vehicles. However, the most time-consuming step is decoding the lock and cutting a new key blade. 

We usually program a new key card for your Renault Megane, and the emergency blade can be done later when you are in a hurry.If your isn’t a lost key, it’s only the case it is not working; it’s enough to copy the emergency blade.

Most Renault Megane or Renault Scenic owners don’t lose their key card; they get a: “Key card not recognised” or “Key card not detected” message on their onboard computer. These keys need to be fixed, or we can supply a new key and program it to your vehicle.

Can an auto locksmith cut and program a key purchased on eBay?

Oak auto locksmith

Yes, we can. Most of the time, it’s not worth buying your key for several reasons.

  • You don’t know the key source, and if the key is faulty, it’s hard to get a refund.
  • We offer good quality OEM or aftermarket keys suitable for your vehicle.
  • We probably beat the price of your key from eBay, Aliexpress or Amazon, and you only pay for the key after you check it works!
  • You can be sure your key is matching with your car. It’s easy to make a mistake when you order a car key; lots of them look similar, but the transponder chip or the remote chip is slightly different. That means it will not program the vehicle.

Where can I upgrade an old-style square key fob for my Nissan Navara?

Oak auto locksmith

We are aware that the square style two-button keys fobs sometimes can be worn, and the buttons stop working, not locking or unlocking the car. We can replace them with better quality flip key style fobs that are much more durable, and the blade is protected because of the flip key mechanism.

The buttons are not working on my Vauxhall Corsa key fob. Is a new battery fix the problem?

Oak auto locksmith

The first step in identifying the problem is to replace the battery. Sometimes you can do it yourself. For example, most car key fobs use a CR2032 battery.

Make sure you correctly insert the battery. If your key fob still does not send the signal and the car is unresponsive, you can give us a call, and we will repair the fob.
