Key Fob Problem

Recommended Posts

Hi Guys,

Hope someone can help...

The last couple of weeks my keyfob will lock the car ok (Avensis 2007 1.8), but is extermely intermittent when trying to unlock (Was stuck in a garage for 3/4 of an hour).

The red LED light displays bright red so I'm not sure its the Battery.

Appreciate any guidance...

I'm having the same issue, my key fob just does not want to work some days. When I finally get in the car it doesn't recognise the key and my engine won't start. When I replace the Battery it works fine, but it doesn't take long for it to return to it's previous state

The LED will only draw a very small current so there does not have to be much left in the Battery for it to glow,maybe that is all there is left in there.

To many people a Battery is a Battery and if it fits it will do but the cheaper batteries on sale tend to not last as long.

These are not a volume seller so look at the date on the pack when buying.I had to return one that I bought from a small shop that was dated 8 years old.

Just trying to help, not preach
