Key fob not working

My key fob just stopped working, my mechanic disconnected my battery and re connected it, it worked for about 3 weeks then just stopped again, what could the problem be? I was thinking a loose connection?

If the key had gone faulty, the key code must be re programmed on the vehicle computer. This can be done only using a PIWIS tool, available at the dealer or at a qualified Porche garage.
Try also the following reset:
turn ignition on,
turn off.
remove the transponder from the column
push any button on the fob within 6 seconds.
This procedure will reset the key synchronizing again with the vehicle computer.

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!

Wont start and shows pic of car on dash with a lock through it


Sounds like the immobilizer is activated? Disconnect the battery for an hour and then reconnect it. It _should_ reset the alarm.

Mechanics changing a battery try to do it quickly, the ECM thinks someone is boosting the car. What they should do is use a couple of lengths of wire to keep the power to the car the whole time of swapping over the battery. That way power remains in the alarm system and immobilizer at all times.

I have 1999 s320 , i bought 3 new battery for my key , they key will work for 3 days than will stop ,please i need help


Unfortunately most of the key fobs are badly built, right from the factory. 99% of the time the battery circuit board contacts in the fob get loose and the battery will only make intermittent contact so sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't. You need to open the fob and closely inspect all the solder joints, any loose joints need to be re-soldered, the unit should then work fine.

The alarm system needs to be de-activated by turning the key to the unlock position at the drivers door lock cylinder when re-connecting the battery. The alarm control module cannot be disconnected otherwise the vehicle will not start.
