key fob identification.
« on: February 14, 2013, 06:03:43 pm »
my key fob seems to be dead! ive been looking and ebay has some for sale that look identical but the description states that these have 2 batteries. mine only has 1.
does anybody know if this is just a re-design over the years or are they just different?
thanks
lee.

iirc you must get the same 1 as the 1 you already have,as they work on different frequencies.

yep, was 2 batteries after all. ;) thanks for that!!!
replaced both batteries and did manage to pair it with the car. however the operation is poor! only works when it likes and only very close. think its still looking like a new fob is needed.

Just as the book describes, as far as I can tell the solid led shows its in pairing mode and this starts to flash if the signal is received and paired which mine did. Sounds like yours is knackered also!
Some car accessory shops have a tester which can pick up the signal. Wilco's in Kettering tried mine and got an occasional response which explains why it doesn't always work!

no charge for testing, mine will also roll the windows down if its left in unlock position. mine has stopped working again, looks like new fob! never ending.
