keys
« on: December 27, 2017, 07:18:07 pm »

on one of my ignition keys, the remote lock/unlock is not working.  I replaced the battery twice and it's unlikely that two new batteries would be dead. 

any thoughts?  or should I go to one of those "we'll fix anything electrical" places, like this http://www.advancedcomputers.co.nz/electronics-repairs/



I posted this first on trading post because I wanted a key body for the other key, but I found one on trademe

no, different brands and bought several weeks apart

I doubt it has an impact, but I did put the blade and board into a new case a while ago
