Not for more money, no text will do. I just want to know why it keeps falling to work, then will work

Dear customer, it seems that there is a problem with the key reading, i.e. the vehicle has problems detecting the signal from the controls, this may be because the transponder is not encoding the signal. In these cases it is recommended to program the keys with the vehicle's transponder and if the problem persists it is recommended to check the transponder, it is possible that you may have to replace it.
