Dead remote batteries

Remote batteries are the source of power for the remote key, and they work directly with the car key remote transmitter.

Car key remote has a log life shell which makes many car owners forget about checking them up.

Seeing that the transmitter and the batteries are connected, it makes sense that when the batteries fail, the remote will not function.

In this situation, replacing batteries is the cheapest solution.

However, sometimes finding the batteries is a challenge. Under such circumstances, replacing the remote is the only solution.

The car key remote transmitter is faulty

A car remote transmits a signal, and the car receives it. This is basically how a remote key works.

The signal transmitted corresponds with the activity being carried out.

Thus, when the remote’s transmitter is faulty, its interaction with the car’s receiver is not possible.

Hence, your key cannot open or lock the doors. It could be loose connections or internal damage.

Sometimes an automotive locksmith can fix the problems, but at other times the problem is beyond repair. This calls for remote car replacement.

Broken car remote

A broken key, especially when the transmitter is faulty, can render the remote key useless.

Also, if the remote inner parts are damaged or broken like the battery connections, the remote cannot function even if the transmitter is functional.

When the buttons are not functional, replacing the remote is vital.
