Keyfob

Hi all just had the low battery warning on my key fob. Changed the battery okay but the key fob is playing up I have to press the unlock/ lock buttons several times to get it to work. Any ideas? Thanks

RE: Keyfob

I’ve just had this in my RRS and as the car was in for a service I asked them to replace the battery in the fob giving the message, when I picked the car up there was no charge for the battery which was nice.

Soon going back - RRSport L494 in Corris Grey with Ebony/Lunar interior and Ebony Headliner - pimped up with 22" wheel and polished stainless steel skid plates from and rear. Being replaced by a Mini Countryman PHEV in April 2018.

RE: Keyfob

Did you replace it with a branded individually packaged battery or one from a pack of a dozen that you get from the pound shop? I find those batteries next to useless. Well, when you are allegedly getting thirty quids worth of batteries for a quid, you’ve got to wonder about the quality!

RE: Keyfob

One thought - did you follow the right procedure in the owner’s manual? I know it sounds weird but it isn’t just a case of old battery out and drew one in, also the quality of the battery reall does matter with most of these keyless fobs.

RE: Keyfob

Have changed mine a few times now, not had any issues, although I do always use a brand-new Duracell battery.

There is a reset procedure you could try on the off-chance, just hold the key under the steering column for a minute, not sure what it does but i'd say try a decent brand Battery and then do that, if it was working fine before, then be worth giving that a try.

RE: Keyfob

I got it sorted now. I went out and put in a Duracell one in instead of the cheap ones and it's all okay. So thanks everyone for your advice
