i had the exact same problem only diff. my car neva started again, its the software in the key or something like that the car does not accept the code of the key, reno has to recode the key for you, unfortunately for me they dont do that here in S.A so they had to order a key from France and that takes 21 working days to get to SA. you better sort that probe out before it jus dont start and then u gonna have to tow it to reno
to start with i had the exact same prob as you dannyboy86, then after about a month of doing it, the same thing happened to me as what many lemons did and reno had to order a new chip part to the key, cost 130 quid but it only took jus over a week for everythin to be done, that prob happened 2-3 weeks ago. Id get it checked out and if you do need a new one they can order it while you still have ur old key so you can still drive!
I had very similar problem - kept getting imobilised more & more frequently(went form once a month to once a week over about a year), I did some searches on forums and went for the cheapest fix option - there is a sensor around the ignition barrel which detects the key - I replaced this, it was about £40 and to me about 20mins - I've had no problems for over 6 months now.
It also made my central locking work every time as this was also dodgy!
I did post some info with the part number, but cant seem to find it now, if I do i'll post
