Customer Question

Megane wont start message reads card reader fault

A dirty or broken keycard reader can cause such problems. You could try vacuuming it - sometimes fluff or dust gets trapped inside. Failing that it's time to remove the reader unit out and either get it repaired or replaced.
and there's a microswitch which detects the card position which can stick so once you have the reader out its well worth trying to clean the switch

Also the keys themselves can develop a fault

and this firm have a good reputation for repairing them
