Re: Key and alarm queries
It's likely the small microswitch under the black bit on the key (what you need to press to remotely lock/unlock the car) has seperated from the small PCB in the key. The switch is soldered but those solder joints are the only things holding the switch fixed in place.
Every time you press the switch, you put pressure on the solder-joints which they cannot handle that well -hence over time they just fail and the micro switch comes loose from the PCB.
Simple solution; re-solder the switch and it'll work again. I've fixed more than one (remote) key like that.
