My used 2003 Passat came with both fobs unable to hold a key. I had to break them open to retrofit a loop. These are some great links that I bookmarked. The first one should give you programmin instructions.Good luck!

My 07 Pilot key fob has quit working, replaced the battery with the CR1616 like the one that was in it. Still not getting a light on the key fob when I push button. Its fob fried?


If the little light doesn't work when you push a button, it's either dead, or fried. Be sure you put the battery in correctly too.

Have you tried replacing the rubber pad buttons? We had the same problem. The remote quit working and we changed the battery and it still didn't work. I was actually online looking for a replacement and came across something about the the rubber pad buttons. We ordered a replacement for $9.95, it came two days later and was a cinch to change out. The remote has been fine, ever since.

My remote control eats batteries


I replaced the battery in a VW key fob with an exact match of the dead battery I found in it. The fob worked again but the new battery lasted only 1 day. I checked the manual and discovered that the wrong battery had been installed by the previous owner and I had repeated that mistake. I installed the correct battery and it has worked fine ever since. I suggest that you double check to be sure you are installing the correct replacement batteries.

Are you sure you have the cHave y

I have the same problem with my 2008 Grand Prix - replaced the batteries in both key fobs - they worked for a few days and quit working. Remote start does not work and both of the cigarette lighter chargers do not work either. I have recieved a "charging system failure" message on the readout screen as well. I have checked with 2 different mechanics and they are not sure what it is. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

My FOB for my ponitiac g6 quit working. i


Either the FOB is bad or you need to program the FOB. Sometimes it will have in your owners manual how to program the FOB. You can purchase a FOB from ebay or a dealer. Usually if you purchase from Ebay, the person will tell you how to program the FOB but a dealer will charge about $100 for the FOB and $45-$75 to program it and don't forget even though they know what it is they still charge a diagnostics fee of $65+
