Hello if the immobilser light is remaining on then thats very likely to be the fault1st thing to check is if the key fob battery is OK and replace it if in any doubt I'd also try resetting the ECU by disconnecting the battery cables and clamping them together for 10 mins. Remove both battery leads from the battery then use a nut and bolt or G-clamp to hold both battery lead terminals together. This discharges any capacitors / memory within the ECU and around the car so ensures all memory settings are wiped clear - back to the factory default. This will reset all the systems on the car and you may need the radio security code to get it going again, and ensure that the keys are in your hand when you re-connect the battery as the car may lock and turn on the alarm if this doesn't work then you may need to get the vehicle to a security specialist or Renault dealer as unfortunatly only they can reset a security system
