Have you tried a new battery in the defective fob?

Have you taken the defective fob apart to see if there is still any moisture inside that could be removed?

Do you have a second fob and have you tried it?

Do you have the manual EKA code? That will disable the alarm/immobiliser and allow you to at least use the car, albeit with the laborious process required each time... see here: How do I use my EKA CODE?

If you dont have the code:

Where are you located? - perhaps a friendly forum member may be willing to use their own equipment to try to program a new/replacement fob for you.

Alternatively, are their any ex-MG Rover dealers/service centers near you that might still have the equipment needed to produce a replacement fob for your car?

Good luck?
