Arrest that mechanic...He spoilt the key fob, and instead of apologizing and liasing with you to replace or fix it, he is slyly patching things and passing the buck..
That's how these useless mechanics behave until they meet a joyless customer..As far as they are concerned, once they have fixed or pretended to fix whatever car complaint is brought to them, they do not care what else they damage in the process of doing that fix
I repeat..arrest mechanic and make him pay for a replacement of that fob ...that way, going forward , he will be more careful with people's vehicles...
This is exactly why I insist on being present and even assisting when a mechanic is fixing my vehicle..and my eyes and ears are wide open at that point..I can't count the number of times I have had to pick forgotten bolts, nuts and tiny parts off the ground and insist they be put in their proper place, even when mechanic is telling me "e no mean"...and i will be like "E no mean kini ..abi ya daddy wants to die ni"
I won't allow someone's carelessness with my car kill me or put me at risk of danger...this is why I do not visit all these big car workshops where one can't be allowed to observe his vehicle being fixed, aside their outrageous prices of course ...
Even for something as little as a tyre patch, I will be present eyeballing everything that's going on ....make the weyrey vulcanizer no go pump 60psi put for my tyre

It is the key fob, I think key programmers would fix it.

Wont that constitute more wahala and invest more resources - I no get energy.
But thanks for the advice, buddy.

I thought as much but he said it was just the casing that was changed - the engine was not touched.

Car ECU does not recognise key transponder, all thanks to Kazeem.
Budget for a replacement and additional programming.

Make sure the broken key fob is close to the key slot when you try to start the car.
|Re: Closed by winzy(m): 10:41am On Jul 29|
Thank you - I have not had the time to do this but I will update you guys once the issue has been resolved.
Although it was checked and they suggested it is not the key because the security light on the dashboard recognises the key ( I am not in Nigeria atm )
|Re: Closed by winzy(m): 10:42am On Jul 29|
Thank you, boss.
They are insinuating that the problem aint from the key anyways.
|Re: Closed by cyborg123(m): 9:23am On Jul 30|
winzy:You are welcome.
The problem is from the key but I'm afraid other steps they have taken to resolve the problem has complicated it.
|Re: Closed by winzy(m): 9:23pm On Aug 01|
They tired to open the car today manually (with a key) the key is turning but not unlocking the car.
This is now really making me feel sad - as the car was in perfect conditions but stories everyday cropping up now - I don’t even know a good locksmith in Enugu.
What do you guys think the issue is now and do you have any reliable locksmith that can check it out?
