I have an issue with my key fob. The remote central locking does not work. I have recently changed the battery and still the same. I have also put a piece of paper in between the battery and the cover from advise given. The led on the fob is operational however there is no response. I have also tried tp synchronise the fob to no avail.
I called my local repair centre and they said it could be faulty. They also asked me if the circuit board that the battery sits on has come off where it is held and I told them that that it hasn't come off completely but is loose. THey then said that this is the likely cause of the fault. Anyone have any experiences of this or is sceptical of their response?
If this was the case I would need a new fob. I would prefer to buy a used one off ebay as its cheaper. Is there anything I have to be aware of before doing so? Plus there are also guides about reprogramming it yourself of £1.50. Are these any good? If it can be done at home 'within minutes' according to the seller, why bother going to the dealer and pay £50 for reprogramming?
Anyone got any advise on what I should do as it is really inconvenient without remote locking? Low cost options please as I am skint.
