Congratulations for the MoT John
Always nice to read/hear these kind of stories!!
Here's another upbeat 620ti experience.
One of the Central Locking Remote Fobs suddenly stopped working after four years of faultless use. Fitted two new 2016 Button Cell Batteries and still not working. Removed PCB and carefully cleaned it then refitted. This has worked in the past but, not this time....
Losing patience now coming to the conclusion it will never work again. Very annoying having only one working fob for a car as odds-on Sod's Law will play a part and guess which one would go missing...
Then you're in trouble being unable to use the car.
Right getting desperate now. ran some hot water into a cup and immersed the Fob's PCB fully into the water for a few minutes. Removed it, shook the surplus water away and carefully wiped it dry with a paper sheet of kitchen towel. Then placed it on a recently boiled kettle to allow the heat to fully dry it completely.
Half an hour later reassembled the fob with those new 2016 batteries and pressed the buttons. IT NOW LIT UP both the Green and Red L.E.D,s !!!
Took both fobs out to the car and BOTH WORK.
Funny old game cars and their stuff sometimes. I am not recommending this hot water treatment but, looks like it did the trick on this occasion.
Whilst on the subject of Rover 600 remote fobs. My most recent 620ti acquisition came with only one Remote Fob and Chipped Key. I really need a pair of duplicates. Unlike in the past, my usually helpful local Locksmith has not been able to source a chipped key to clone this time. he has tried to obtain a blank one without luck for a few weeks now.
So, does anyone know anywhere who could supply a duplicate Chipped Key and Remote Fob for a Rover 600?
