I just bought a replacement key fob shell, I transferred the components from my old one to the new one and now the fob will not work at all but it worked fine before. Why would this be? Same vehicle.

Can I get a used key fob from a wrecking yard for my c230 sport Mercedes , will it have to be reprogramed by the dealer?


if the key fob plastic is broken but not the internals ( if you still have the key) a locksmith can supply a new key fob and install your existing internals in the new case with out need a program

key fobs are available new from a locksmith or e-bay and the cost will be to have the key cut to the old key plus the cost of the shell

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.

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.)

Saab 2003 key not recognized how to by pass to get it started


There's an antenna for the transponder receiver built into the key surround on the 9-5, it could have had a knock or be faulty.

On the 9-5 if the transponder stops working and you get a key not accepted message then you can override it by pushing the unlock button on the key remote with the ignition turned to on and it should let you start the car.

This happen with our 2006 Chevrolet Malibu Maxx LTZ. Open your fob and test the battery. If you measurement is not 3 volts; replace the battery. Our battery was fine, but my fob worked by pressing the circuit board directly. Bought a new case with rubber inserted my old fob board. works fine

Yes, the actual blade just separates form the radio transmitter - they pull apart. You may need to use a flat blade screwdriver though.

Key fob remote start issues


You need to get one that works on the same wide range frequency as the reciever in the car, and then it's a simple matter of opening both the new and old fobs, and matching the fine frequency settings by putting the little switches inside where they should be according to the old fob's switches. If there are no switches in the old fob, it's preset and there's not much you can do about it.
