Hi all,
My key fob battery has stopped re-charging and it's a pain as I keep forgetting and leaving the car unlocked - not a good idea!
I have been told by my local dealership that I have to buy a new fob costing about Ł140 but that it will not need re-configuring to my car although another dealership has told me a new fob would need to be re configured.
I have also been told that the battery can just be replaced, but I don't want to try this if it will mess things up?
Any help greatly appreciated
