Hi Stan .

This is quite easy to resynchronize the key

Sit in drivers seat ,put key into the ignition switch, and switch on ignition then press the lock button on the fob .

switch ignition off and then step out the car and close all doors and then lock the doors with the fob .

Reopen with Fob step in and start .

If this does not work then you will have to visit the dealer to reprogram the key fob and immo system.

If you need further assistance with this issue then please get back to me with the reply box below .
This is not a one answer and done i/we will stay with you until the problem is sorted out .

Hi .

Could you please explain why you gave a poor rating .

Answer did not work
Expert:  Greg replied 9 months ago.

Like i said Stan if does not work then you have a problem with the key fob .

Also gave you advise on how to get this sorted out with a mobile shop .

So if did not work due to a faulty key fob or if you personally did something wrong

in programming then why give a negative report...

Kind regards Greg
