Re: Key fob problem

Try leaving the car unlocked, disconnect the battery again and reconnect. I am not sure of the proper reset routine but just like Windows its probably worth doing a 'reboot'.

Sometimes there is a proper sequence involving pressing the button upto ten times quickly after replacing the battery or pressing and holding.

Is there a sequence in the handbook for replacing the keyfob battery, it might be worth doign this?

My van had no remote locking when i brought it,i replaced the battery in the remote to no avail
Then you have to go to Fiat with id ..proof of ownership...and get a security code (takes a while,and theres normaly a charge) so they can reprogramme ur keys,i just ..well brought a keyless entry alarm of ebay for 34 and had my good friend Ade fit it,its far better than a remote key as it opens the doors when you walk up to it with youre arms full of tools shopping etc...and then locks it again when you walk off,might be worth looking into.

maybee of some help

Kind regards

Richie
