Question about 2001 Volkswagen Golf
I have a 2002 VW golf GT TDi and my battery in the key fob remote is getting very weak and will not work unless i am right beside the car , but i do not know where the battery is situated in the fob to change it 1 any help would be greatly appreciated !
No problem. The key fob is two pieces. The key part and the remote. Open the key as you would to sue it. Where the key flips open you can see a small recess about where the line of the trunck switch. This is where the key separates. You can pull it off or pry it with a small screwdriver. Once separated with remote part in your hand this also splits in 2. In the same area you split the key off insert the screwdriver in this recess and the fob will open giving you access to the battery. Also can be done by hand. It is a little tight so you will have to force which is normal. No screws just clipped. Make sure the battery is positioned in the right way and that you have 3 volts when you test the battery. 2.7 volts will make the remote not work or act funny.
