No batteries? How do I charge it?
Even though they seem to have unlimited power, at some point they must start to fail and get checked to see how good their power center is. But we can’t do this on our own, a locksmith must open the housing carefully so as not to break it and determine if the battery is the problem and why it’s not working properly.
A direct hit without realizing it?
Our keys go back and forth without us noticing it, we throw them on the seats, they fall on the floor, sometimes we can even make the mistake of stepping on them with our body, and although it may seem harmless, this blow, fracture or damage to the control housing can weaken its functionality and cause it to have small moments of failure.
This does not mean that it is totally damaged, sometimes it can work to change the housing and other times it is necessary to reconnect small systems inside it that have separated, in any case, this is done by a professional.
Interference between the remote and the receiver?
There are cases where you have to move the remote in a specific way for it to work, and this is known as interference. There can be several reasons, from a small spider web to a little bit of moisture that fell inside, the point is that you can’t risk this spreading further as it can bring you problems when you are away from home and need the remote control.
This failure is probably caused by lack of maintenance or by keeping the remote control in a very humid environment, although it can also be caused by time of use, either way, remote control repairs do not take long and are accessible most of the time, so do not be afraid to seek help and stay safe when it comes to your car.
