    Default Keyfob wont work

    Locking my car with the remote key fob got harder to do and I had to get closer and closer to do it until it didnt work at all. I assumed it was the battery but after changing that it still doesnt work. I dont know where to look next....any ideas please ?

    there is a fix that involves putting a bit of card in the case, behind the batt (i think), that seems to have sorted the problem for a few members on here.

    Did this with my Zafira fob as it turned out the battery and holder came unsoldered/away from the pcb. The card held it back in place. Except now thats failed, and will try my op com in a few days to reprogram a replacement keb fob..... Until then its use the key to unlock the car. Oh how old skool.....
