    help needed

    Just got my GSI yesterday, when i press the button on the key nothing happens which means ive got to open the door using the key which in turn sets off the alarm(which is a pain in the arse).Ive tried changing the battery but still nothing!

    Anybody any ideas?

    So the light on the remotes not coming on?

    If so yes it's a common problem where the tabs that hold the battery become desoldered. Sometimes just packing it out with paper works

    The remote will need resyncing after all this too
