key battery low

a few days ago Í got the message "key Battery low" or something similar...

Well HAHA I thought - just received lots of goodies from P38spares.co.uk - including 2 sets of remote key refurbishing kits with buttons, batteries, rear cover plate and O-rings... started changing batteries in the on that was about to go dead. After work I triede to open the car with the remote - NO RESPONS - ok I thought... left the batteries out to long - took my other key with remote end opened the car with that and went home.

At home I tried to syncronize the key in the ignition.. no difference - could easily start the car but not activate the door locks as with the other key.... Looked in my workshop manual. Syncronize has to be done in the doorlock - well easily done I thought... but the doorlock did not work - turned around but no action.... WHAT?!

In the spring I changed the central locking motor - old one had a strange sound - doorlock in the drivers door and carefully reconnected everything - but somehow the small rod for the keylock had come loose - it was just dangeling in the door... reconnected it and tried to syncronize the key again - and it worked!!!

So if you experience something similar - check the drivers door - easily done and remember this - always have both keys with you when you change the batteries in the remote control - just in case.....

Just out of interest what make/range of Snow Tyres have you had fitted.

Michelin Alpin 255/65 R16 - bought them some years ago - great with lots of snow or really wet roads - no good on ice - nut no tires are that anyway - then you need studs...

Should I buy right now I would consider Michelin Alpin or Goodyear...
Good info, thanks for sharing :thumb: . Mine has been saying "key battery low" too, and my "lock" button does not work cause it is corroded in the remote :( .
Have you tried to clean with som econtact cleaner? I would if it was mine!!! They cost a fortune :cry: :cry:

buy the kit from P38spares.co.uk - Andy is great (although he sent me the wrong AIC GRRRR) - wil have to send it back and get the right one -

Ferdinand - thnking about giving the car a good wash today - manual of course - as always! :dance: My rangie has NEVER been in an automatic car washing machine
