I love my Scenic 2007 for so many reasons however I would love to have the keyless entry and keyless start feature that more modern cars have. I could upgrade to the current koleos which has that feature but surprisingly the cabin space is less than the Scenic, particularly the rear seat leg room. I hear the new Koleos due later this year might be roomier but it also looks like a much larger vehicle overall compared to the Scenic, which is essentially a small car but deceptively roomy inside. In any case I don't want an SUV. My scenic has the push button start, but requires the key card to be inserted and you still have to push the button on the key card to unlock/lock the doors. I'm hoping that given the technology is already there in the car, that there is someway to modify/activate it so it works. I asked the dealer when I bought the car but they were unhelpful and that was some years ago before this feature became standard as it is now in Australia. The functionality for "smart key" is there, the door handles have what looks to be a sensor behind them, but for some reason this was not activated for the australian imports. Does anyone know if auto electricians can make it work for my car? And what would be required to do so. And can anyone tell me why this function was disabled on australian imports. My research tells me that if I bought my car in France it would work. Thank you to anyone who can offer advice.
