    Default 3 button keyfob

    I think i know the answer to this question, "Pay the money" but i thought i would ask, the unlock button on my keyfob has started to play up, the micro switch i guess, called the stealers today in Byfleet, £60 plus vat for the key plus £40 plus vat to programming, , £120 for a key.
    QUick search on here and a scan of ebay, loads of new type flip keys on there but mixed stories on here of rip off and it worked, also found new micro switches but they appear to need soldering in, my other key is totaly shot and useless, was thinking of maybe trying to refurb that one, but if it has not worked since i got the car 3 or so years ago will it still br programmed.
