Chipped Keys

If your Renault is equipped with a transponder, it’ll only activate when you press the correct key. This helps prevent theft of your car by stopping the engine from starting when an incorrect key is used.

The chip has an identifier number that matches to the one stored in the car’s computer system. When you insert your new key into the ignition it sends an alert to the immobiliser which checks that the code on the chip matches up to the one that is stored in the system. If the match is confirmed, then your car will then allow fuel flow, turn of the starter motor or any other thing it needs to do.

If the key is unable to send a match, or it is not recognized by the immobiliser, the car will stop working and enter a safety lockout mode. renault key programming takes between three and four minutes. If this happens you won’t be able to drive your car and will require a new key.

Key Cards

Renault key cards appear different from chipped keys, but function in a similar manner. The card is inserted into the dash panel reader, and when you press the key button, it unlocks the car. When you press the engine button, it starts the vehicle. The key card can also be encoded to give you access to different areas of a building, so nobody else will be able access your car or certain areas of the office.

Key Fobs

Key fobs today come with more functions beyond locking and unlocking. Certain fobs have a button to remotely open and shut the car doors, and start the vehicle. Some fobs feature buttons that can open the windows. Others allow drivers to summon their car and automatically park it.

Most of these functions require the key fob to be in close proximity to a door latch to be activated. However, some of them can be activated by pressing the key fob’s buttons quickly. Key fobs come with security features which prevent their signals from being intercepted and copied.

They can be programmed by a dealer or locksmith using an instrument for diagnosing.

Some people believe transponder key fobs and transponder keys work the same way. Understanding the differences between the two will make it easier to understand how they work. A transponder key is used to open car doors but is also required to start the car. This is accomplished by transmitting a signal from the microchip in the key to the engine. The microchip can identify the car’s unique serial number then turn off the immobilizer.
