I hope someone can help, this afternoon my key fob just stopped working so couldn't open the car or start it,
I changed the battery but still the light on the fob doesn't work,
I have not dropped this or anything so have no idea why its now not working,
Any ideas ?

Wow 73 views and no-one fancied a crack at answering this?? wtf, is everyone ****** or something? lol

If the key is no longer communicating with the receiver module (or whatever it talks to in the car) I assume it needs recoding or there's a fault with the key or receiver. I assume you have a spare and it's doing the same?

Anyway, it's a dealer job unless any other bright sparks wake up and have a better idea!! :scared2:

Simple question... have you changed the battery in the key fob? (happend to me on my last company car with keyless. Didnt realise I had been sat with a button being pressed in all day and killed the battery in the fob - quick battery swap and all good to go)

If the car is less than 3 years old, may be covered under warranty. Just pop to your local dealer. Should be a quick job.
