What type of vehicle? You may need to reprogram the remote, depending on vehicle type.

SOURCE: I replaced the batteries in my key fob and it

I would look at the WCM wireless control module. It is a common problem on Dodge/Jeep key fob issues.

The key fob must be programmed at the dealer to work with more than one fob.

It sounds like your FOB needs to be reprogrammed, email me at bigt_wlm@juno.com around thursday and I will try to email you the programming instructions for that, If I am not able to you will need to call a locksmith with a T-Code or MVP Pro key programmer or DODge to programm your remote to your ECU

How to remove battery in 2008 cts remote


Replacing The Battery In Your Cadillac Key Fob Replacing the battery before it dies will save you from having to replace the fob, reprogram it, and, if nothing else, getting stuck on the side of the road. Find the seam on the side of the fob and, using a small flathead screwdriver, pry the seam open on both sides. Take the cover off, remove the circuit board - use the screwdriver to pop it out - and swap the batteries out. Then close the case back together, and you're done. It's really simple; just be careful with the circuit board and battery contact while you're in there.

How to repair your vehicle's worn out remote control key


When I saw a friend's worn out remote car key, I knew that other people must have the same problems, and that somebody must sell replacement parts for repairing the case (fob).
The flexible rubber side of her key was torn and one of the button inserts had fallen out making it difficult to unlock her car doors. Water could get into the electronics and ruin it.
I found the necessary parts kit on Amazon for $3.99, shipping included from China. After repairing the first of her keys without any problems, I tried to order another for her spare key through Amazon, but it was no longer available. I found it on eBay for $1.75, shipping included from Hong Kong. It took the first key 15 days to arrive. I just order the second kit.
To find a replacement for your key fob, copy and paste the link that follows, into your browser, enter your vehicle info, and keep scrolling until you find the right one at the right price.

This is the worn out remote key for a Toyota RAV4.

2649-iaxib405bepsbgxqmtuipiph-4-2.jpg
This is the refurbished key after replacing the fob (case), using only the electronic module from the original. The key blank is molded into the fob, just like the original. All that remains is getting the key cut. All parts fit perfectly, and in my opinion, the new fob is better designed than the original.



26410-iaxib405bepsbgxqmtuipiph-4-12.jpg
First pop the case open by twisting a screwdriver in the slot on the side, just like you do when changing the battery.

2642-iaxib405bepsbgxqmtuipiph-4-17.jpg
The new fob has plastic buttons that fit into compartments in a hard plastic case instead of the flexible rubber buttons that wore out. The rubber gasket (upper center in the picture) holds the buttons in place and provides waterproofing in the completed assembly.

2643-iaxib405bepsbgxqmtuipiph-4-23.jpg
Remove the electronics component from the old key.

2644-iaxib405bepsbgxqmtuipiph-4-30.jpg
That's the switch side of the electronics component showing in this picture.

2645-iaxib405bepsbgxqmtuipiph-4-38.jpg
Insert the new buttons in the holes in the face of the new fob. This was a three function remote that didn't include the trunk release, so that was just an extra part in this case.

2646-iaxib405bepsbgxqmtuipiph-4-47.jpg
Insert the rubber gasket over the assembled button/fob face.

2647-iaxib405bepsbgxqmtuipiph-4-57.jpg
Insert the electronics component into the new fob face.

2649-iaxib405bepsbgxqmtuipiph-4-68.jpg
Snap the front and back together and test the functions on your vehicle to make sure everything is working properly. Have the new blank cut at your favorite store ($2.00 charge for this key at a locksmith shop nearby. Any place that cuts keys could have done it.)

How do I change the battery on the key fob?


On most you have to pry the fob case open with a small screwdriver or pocket knife. There's a seam that runs around the fob where you pry it open. Then after changing the battery you just snap it back together.

My key will not start my car,then it wouldn't open the door


This model year comes equipped with Keyless Enter-N-Go, which uses an electronic transmitter in the key fob to communicate with the car. The vehicle's doors will not unlock and the vehicle will not start if the key fob is not matched to the vehicle or if the commonly-available watch battery in the key fob has been depleted. The EVIC will flash a message upon vehicle startup if it determines that the battery in your key fob is low on charge and should be replaced.

To open the doors, try the following:

1. Use the spare key fob that came with the vehicle. If the battery in your main key fob is depleted, the spare key fob's battery may still retain charge due to its much more occasional use.

2. The key fob comes with an emergency key inside of it. To remove the emergency key, slide the mechanical latch on the back of the key fob sideways with your thumb and then pull the key out with your other hand. This key will allow you to unlock the driver's side door and glove compartment. It will not start the vehicle.

To start the car with a severely-depleted key fob battery, try the following:

1. In case the ignition switch does not change with the push of a button, the RKE transmitter (Key Fob) may have a low or dead battery. In this situation a back-up method can be used to operate the ignition switch. Put the nose side (side opposite of the emergency key) of the Key Fob against the ENGINE START/STOP button and push to operate the ignition switch.

To replace the battery in your key fob, try the following:

1. Remove the emergency key from the key fob following the directions above.

2. Using a vinyl spudger tool or a flat-bladed screwdriver, gently pry the two halves of the key fob apart at the indented slot above the slot for the emergency key.

3. Replace the depleted battery with a new battery. Use the depleted battery to visually match the size. The battery is usually available wherever watch or hearing-aid batteries are sold.

4. Snap the key fob back together and replace the emergency key. If the issue is a depleted battery, your key fob should operate normally.

If the issue is not related to the state of the battery, you will probably need to contact your local dealer for service.

  2. Remove the back of the key fob and set it aside.
  3. Hold the front half of the key fob in your hand; turn it over so the rubber buttons touch your palm.
  4. Use your finger to gently pry the circuit board from the back of the panic button; set the circuit board aside.
  5. Stick a piece of tape over the metal connectors on the back of the panic button.
  6. Replace the circuit board, which should now rest on top of the tape.
  7. Replace the backing of the key fob and press down to snap it into place.

Hope this helped.

Mercedes Benz 2002 C Class 180. Key fob batteries


You have to seperate the front of the fob casing by sliding or prising at the side this will then reveal the batteries. You can get replacement batteries from most garages or your MB dealer (who will probably fit them as well)

2. Remove the old battery.
3. Insert the new battery. Refer to
the diagram inside the remote entry
