this started like a month ago.... to close the car i would need to press the key button like 20/20 times in order to get the doors locked and the alarm active, today seems like it's definetely dead.
i spent 10 minutes by pressing the key button but the car didn't close at all, and this is a problem since i don't have the locks on both doors, i refuse to close the car by entering from the trunk like a thief.... can you imagine the scene?!
i checked out the fuses and nothing seems to be wrong there, checked the 2 CR2026 batteries and i got 6.2v on both and 3.2v on each batteries ... but the car wound close anymore! so i took out the transponder but i didn't saw anything there... what i saw was a button aside the green led
what is that? i pressed, it started flashing, tried again to close the car, no way.
What else must i check?!
check central lock unit on fusebox. usually a big yellow relay.
recently found out mine was faulty. sometimes doors locked, sometimes not. problem gone after replacing for a 2nd hand one.
I think there is no way to tell if it is faulty unless you try another.
you have a relay on the main fuse board on the left 3rd up from the bottom and a 20Amp fuse 5th one down on the the left
found the issue, it's from the key itself.
the problem is not the microswitch, is the little metallic part from the microswitch board that doen't make a proper contact with the other surface, causing this some kind of bad communication beetween the chip on the key and the car receiver, i'll put some pics of what i'm talking about.
