Hello, my name is ***** ***** I will try help you with this.

Mark :

I would suggest you first replace the batteries in each key to see if this makes a difference.

Mark :

However, it is more likely the keys are faulty.

Mark :

It is a known fault where the switch contacts on the circuit board can come loose and cause this fault.

Mark :

There are several specialists that are online that can repair these keys for you.

Mark :

You can also use the emergency key to unlock/lock the vehicle so that it is secure.

Mark :

The emergency key is used on the passenger side door handle.

Hi mark I change the battery already on both of them could it be sensor on the car because iv find someone to dothe key but with it been alote of money I want to make sure its the key before I pay for something that not the problem

Mark :

A quick check to the key is to see if the led lights up when you press the buttons.

Mark :

If it doesn't light up then most likely is the switches.

Mark :

It is unlikely to be the car receiver at fault.
