Sounds like it needs to be reset by a dealer?. Don't know if theres anyway to do it yourself (i know there is a way with Ford remote locking), i'm sure someone with more knowledge will be along soon...

Try this.
Sit inside the vehicle and press the key remote for a min of 10 seconds or untill the red indicator on the key goes out. When the light on the key goes out release the key button and then press twice in succession. This is from a megan manual but should be the same through out the Renault range. Also this is what to do after changing the key battery. This procecdure is to synchronise the key to the car.

Just in passing, the sensor for the key is up in the roof (behind the courtesy lamp/electric sunroof controls) and it's not unusual for the loom to fail feeding it. Mine had the earth go open circuit and the blip would not work (or the sunroof). A new wire was run to the chassis and solved my problem. It's a bit of a **** if you need to replace the keys as the imobiliser block needs to be changed with it (£90 is quid) plus the keys, plus putting it on clip to set it up. Check the wiring upstairs first ;-0
