I would be very interested in finding a cheaper source of key fobs..

We have a "new" Carina GTi 93 with a single button key fob...

As we only got the one key fob and have had problems getting into our old carina due to flat battery and alarm /deactivation (after a long search we found an old key fob) we decided to get a spare key fob for the Gti...

Toyota quoted 85 because it was an old single button type

My 95 Carina has 2 button key fob (red & black button + red LED).

Spoke to a scrappy and he doesn't keep 'em. But I don't know if thats the norm..

We also had a quote for 37 for a copy of the key fob at a key cutting place... How's that done then?

Hope you can all help get the key fob prices down..

When I went to collect my s/hand '97 Carina one of the key fobs was found to have a defective battery.
They replaced the battery but found it still wouldn't operate.
(After reference to the cars handbook) apparently the method is to press both buttons simultaneously for a few seconds which 'reprogrammes' it.
It worked after that.

I have a 1994 Carina with MW-8371 alarm with 08190-00821 as a part number.

I've had the car for 6 months now and I have just found out it had remote locking. Am I right in thinking I need a single button remote as I have aquired a 2 (red/Black) one which doesn't program.
