(guess when they wrote it they did't know LDV where broke and going to the cleaners!!) Can anyone help sorting my problem and is a bit frustrating. Help!

Hi
I know from experience that you cannot really re synch these fobs on the LDV Maxus vans.
What actually is the fault is an onboard component on the pcb has failed and we normally just replace that with a new one..the fob will be tested for operation and sent back. OR its the Relay in the ESA unit - under the left hand front glovebox on the bulkhead - black with cables going into it. We have those relays (soldered to the pcb) we can supply those or do the work for you. The fob connects to that ESA and the unit then fires the relays to open/close the doors. Sometimes that unit is installed upside down which causes water (condensation) to enter the box and have fun with your electrics.
The fob is SYNCHED to this unit via coding we can use your old fob to clone to a new fob and that will work with the ESA and the vehicle.
We have the parts on this link Items for sale from remobilise ltd

Here is a link to how to program the fob to the vehicle via the programmer - NOTE how you MUST have a working fob to program another (text at the start of the video... LDV Maxus flv

We can fix most problems on the LDV Maxus that occur with faults to do with the Central locking/fobs/ESA/ETACS - three relays are in the ESA and they control ONLY the central locking - two more relays are in the ETACS unit (behind the ashtray) and they control the fogs and intermittant wipers.

Any help or info needed please contact [email protected]

    Thanks George - UPDATE: We can NOW program new fobs to a ESA (central locking unit) on the LDV Maxus EVEN if you have NO existing fobs...by the way - the fobs do not lose sync with the ESA unit -what happens is that an SMD component on the fob PCB fails. Even though the fob light ups and seems to transmit it is garbled. We can sort that fob or replace it with a brand new one and program that on the workbench on our own specially built jig. We can also program the transponder keys to the immo box - no need to come to us or use expensive Auto locksmiths on call outs to you.See our eBay page here for more info:http://www.ebay.co.uk/sch/remobilise.ltd...

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.

Don't know if will work for you but here it goes:

1 - no key in ingnition
2 - press the unlock button in console off the car for about 10 seconds(dont let go)
3 - it should work the central doors one time and then 2 times( hear)
4 - press the remote a few times until it starts working

It worked for me hope the same for you.
Please tell me if it worked and pass the message.

Good luck

If it is a factory keyless system than you do need it done by the dealer, but if it is an after market system then reply back with manufacture and model.

SOURCE: i have a 55 maxus ldv van. i have problems

sounds like it could be the pressure control valve on the fuel pump not an expensive repair. the pressure drops in the line over night. try priming the filter whilst the engine is being cranked. the control valve is held on by 3 torx screws on the end of the pump.

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.

LDV Maxus 3.5 Drivers door lock initially wouldn't unlock with fob, will work with key. Now will not lock or unlock on fob. Back door will unlock with fob, but does not lock, it has to be locked


The problem is not the actuators, the fault lies in the central locking control unit under the dashboard, behind the glovebox, on the firewall. The CLCU is mounted with the connection terminals to the top resulting in condensation going onto the printed circuit board inside, if the damage started a while ago there is only 3 ways to go.

1. specialist firm to repair the CLCU.
2. Replace.
3. (As I did) buy a cheap remote control receiver with keyfob/s. Cut all wires off the multiplug, there are four pairs, a permanent live and permanent earth. Test each wire to earth on the van to identify the permanent earth FIRST. Then test pairs of wires across 12v/Earth noting which pairs actuate which lock.Isolate in pairs noting which wire has to be live to lock, (Reversed it will unlock) wire each pair into the relay on the remote receiver using the relay to changeover the polarity to each pair You will then be able to Lock/Unlock all the doors, throw the old CLCU away and mount the RCReceiver eslewhere to keep it dry. each door individually. I bought a 2 way RCReceiver and can lock/Unlock front doors seperate the the rear ones which is of far more use! Any decent electrician will tell you how to wire the relays. Job Done..... (100% Sure)

Ldv maxus wont start off key but goes with a push everytime


You could check your battery if its properly charged then check your alternator, probably d alternator is bad and doesnt charge the battery wel enough. So its either your alternator or ur battery. Also try removing a batt terminal after each drive to avoid draining
