Renault Locksmith

The Renault Immobiliser system uses either infra red or radio frequency for plip key operation and transponder key technology for key entry and starting. The infra red and RF systems use a rolling code system to ensure the vehicle system cannot be breached.

Activation of the immobiliser system is indicated by the LED indicator in the instrument cluster. If there is a fault in the system, an emergency access code can be used to disable the system using the central door locking button or key and the LED to enter the code.

On petrol vehicles, the immobiliser is carried out by the fuel injection system and on diesel systems it is carried out by the coded solenoid valve.

The immobiliser system automatically sets itself after 10 minutes if both doors are closed.

If the ignition is switched OFF and one of the front doors is opened, then the immobiliser sets itself after 1 minute. To disarm the system the doors must be locked and unlocked using the plip key functions. Only 2 plips can be operated on this system.

The immobiliser key system operates independently of the plip system. When the key is turned to the ignition OFF position the immobiliser activates after 10 seconds. This system used 2 special matched keys with coded transponders.

The system comprises a receiver aerial around the ignition lock, a decoder unit located under the dashboard, (which sends the decoding signal to the fuel injection computer or coded solenoid valve) and the RED warning light.

The security code is normally displayed in the front of the service book, if not, it can be obtained from either the Renault dealer or we can obtain it.
