    Default Key fob buttons stuck

    The micro switches in my key fob have jammed. has anyone ever been able to free them. I have stripped it down and cleaned the insides, then sprayed with wd 40. Still not working. just looking for sugggestions as I think there is nothing to lose trying.

    You can replace the microswitches - believe they need soldering in. Have a look at
