    Default Dropped Key

    The wife dropped my spare key yesterday, and it has stopped working

    I've opened the key up, and found the battery had come slightly loose, so popped it back in, and it worked for a while. It's now dead as a door nail.

    Anyone got any ideas as to what else could be wrong with it?

    Try putting the key in the ignition turn the key so the ignition lights come on, but don,t start it. Press either the open or close button on the key, if the door buttons pop up and down, you might find it works ok.

    I tried the key a few times this morning, and it worked for a while. I think the battery is dead, so I'll get a new one and give that a try

    When you say "it worked for a while"

    Are you referring to it operating the central locking,

    or starting the car up, but now doesn't?

    It will start the car, and disable the alarm when they key is turned in the ignition.

    I was referring to it operating the central locking, and then not after a few tries
