As the title suggests, we bought a car yesterday, a Renault Megane 1.4 P reg which has a car immobiliser worked by the key remote.
The person whom we purchased the car off told us the immobliser/remote was "tempremental" but this was possibly a little understated.
Anyway the problem is when we use the key remote to try and gain entry to the car and switch off the immobiliser it works about 1 in 10 clicks.
I thought it might be the batteries in the remote so I changed them to no effect. I also checked the wiring to the infared bit in the car (above the rear view mirror?) and that seemed ok, no loose wires.
Anybody have any ideas what to try next please ? I'm afraid I and my partner are both automotively challenged so any advice needs to be for dummies. We are also on limited budgets so any work around would be good if it's an expensive fix.
Many thanks in advance for any help given.
