Postman arrived with goodie bag today,
Obvious problem given I ordered two fobs unless one is made from that new element called ‘Emperorsnewclothes-ium’
Reassuringly inexpensive construction
...and it’s now go jag to make look a right dodgy geezer on eBay as it didn’t work but as soon as I’d signed for it, I mailed the seller to report one missing but I’m now going to have to start a return.
A suspicious vendor may think I’ve pretended to only get one and started a return to keep one.
I wish I was quite so devious but alas whichever poor Chinese fellow inhaled heavy metals and pcb dust in the factory making this did so in vain, it did nuffink.
Which left me faffing with the original keys again. I got a glimmer of red light acknowledgment in car from each fob but it was hit and miss and the button travel/contact seemed poor.
I solved this with an advanced cellulose based contact improver* and managed to get one fob working completely - lock/unlock/boot/lights!
The other will do lights if you work it about a bit for long enough but for lock/unlock I think the contacts are done in.
Anyhoo - It now works so all is good!
* May have been half of a folded up pay and display ticket to give the pcb a bit more resistance to flex when the button is pressed.
