Hi .

You will need to go to a Renault service station or a Renault dealership .

As you need to be hooked up to a diagnostic scan tool and in immobilizer system have the inner motion

sensor switched off .

This is the only way to do this .

On some model renault this can not be done but in your case i think it can be done on the 2013.

Need further assistance with this issue then please get back to me with the reply box below .
After rating there is no further cost for any other question relating this issue .
Kind regards Greg

I am totally dissatisfied with this response. I've already found the answer on-line elsewhere and entirely free of charge and does not require visiting a Renault dealership.I am not questioning your experience or desire to help bit the answer is inaccurate and simpler than you've suggested.

Hi .

Sorry that you are not happy but my answer was one way to do this with the dealer scan tool .

And thank you for getting back to me with the reply box and not rating .

And doing this another way without a scan tool is new to me .but happy you got it sorted out.

Remember that if you have a hot day not to leave your Best friend too long in the car alone .

Kindest regards Greg

Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

The alarm will set if you lock the doors with the power lock button or key fob. If you want to lock the doors but not set the alarm you'd want to lock the doors with the mechanical lock knob.
