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.

Fob still won't work after new battery and nothing wrong with the contact inside, do not hae original code for the Kia sportage 1998 so what is the next best thing ,to do?


When replacing the key fob battery there is no reprogramming required! If the key fob was working prior to the battery replacement then it would point to the contacts not being correct! Remove key fob battery and start again!

Immobilizer not disarming


lost both FOBS?
be happy, mine i must keep 3 working.... or cant make my own.
rule 1, never have 1 fob. or get stranded, , you will.....
so does other fob work?

1: check all fuses. both boxes
2: use only the key fob, no other keys on ring, for the test.
3: use the 2nd fob same way , now. with other key far away.
4: make sure battery voltage is 12.6vdc, 10.7v the IMMO goes belly up. (any $10 voltmeter , works)

5: have only 1 fob (transponder-key) near the ignition.
6: do not have other keys near Ignition switch. even just plain keys.
watch out, some after market keys are transponsers but look plain.
I have one for my car. button less fob. very trim, but is transponder key.
7: for sure not other transonder keys from other "cars or anything"

The Lamp means, your transponder key is dead. or scrambled.
buy a new battery for fob. the operator guide tells you what to do.
lost that?
on mine i put in a fresh coin cell and bam, it works.

on newer jeeps, if the IMMO thinks your are hacking the system.
it bricks the IMMO for 24hours, sucks huh?
for example, using a key from another car , in some odd way.
or doing same and battery is weak or remove from under hood.
it thinks its being attacked,, and goes stupid for 24hrs.
i dont think yours has this, , but mine does.

Kia Rio 1.5 diesel Factory alarm,car horn honking,side indicators flashing,unable to start the car. When I arm the car with the fob and unlock the door with the key then open the door the horn starts...


The fob is infamous for its battery life. It gets drained so quickly that there happens to be a little later when the fob is very close to the door lock, ignition & unnecessary triggers the alarm due to low reception as the battery of the fobs discharges very fast, depending on the model, which has a certain virtual sheild(STARTRECK type) which is triggered by the fobs strength of the signal(radi waves).

Why not try a new set of batteries for your fob?? .................................sodeep

Key fob lights up but doesn't work even with a new battery


I'm more familiar with Range Rovers and Saab's when it comes to key fobs but if you changed the battery you have to re-program the key fob. If you do not have an owner's manual that can take you through the steps you might want to try: push and hold the lock button on the key fob, put it in the driver's side door and turn to lock. With the button still depressed turn back to open, remove the key and release the button. If this doesn't work check any and all fuses associated with your system and last but not least you could take it to a dealer. Good luck!

Key fob on my audi a3 1998 has stopped working


the problem is inside the key fob if there is no response from the key fob at all then a new one will be needed. the problem is in side there is a mini circuit board in which all the sensors for that specific car are soldered on they can break very easly.
