Hi All,

My remote fob for my 156 seems very intermittant at the moment. sometimes it works, sometimes not. I haven't yet changed the battery but I thought once the battery goes, I will get no response whatsoever. The button does seem to feel a bit iffy. Are they prone act up, or has anyone else had the same problem. A battery change may well resolve but thought I would get some pointers in the meantime.

It's a Black one. Do I need to strip the whole thing down to get to the switch and where can I get a new switch from?

That's Chris on here.
Personally, I'd start by replacing the battery. But if that doesn't work, he's your man.
