Alfa 147 156 three button key remote short range problem

The three button keys the early versions (with LED) degrade over time and range becomes very poor, only works on a certain short-range location like pressed up against the windscreen or closely drivers door.
My two original Alfa 147 keys have this problem.
I know its possible to fix it repair the circuit board but i don't know how to do this.

Anybody can help? Can explain how to fix the remote circuit board to works again with a good range?

Hi guys,

I too have the exact same issue - 147 3 door with a black three button key (x2). I bought new fob batteries to absolutely no effect. I need to be right next to the car for it to work and rarely it does. It's not such a faff having to unlock the car with the key, but opening the boot only from the dashboard button is getting a little tiresome!!

Any help - not finding much help through searching but pleased to be proven wrong if someone has already found a fix for this!
