I have a Renaultsport Clio 182 which has been off the road for a while and the battery drained very low
When I tried to get into the car to start it, it would not start and the alarm went off. I also could not use the key fob to unlock the central locking remotely (but the red light on the fob flashed when I pressed the key). Also, when I turned the key in the passenger door to lock it, the drivers door did not lock either
I opened the bonnet and held down the sensor to stop the alarm, and then I replaced the car battery. The car would not start and the alarm went off when I got in. Remote central locking still would not work
I have now got some new CR1220 batteries for the key fob. I am going to replace this tonight and try again.
Am I doing anything wrong? It feels odd that the remote central locking doesn't work even though the car battery is full - and it feels even odder that the central locking doesn't work when I physically lock the passengers door
