Key Fob Problem Solved...Redemption

...in search of key redemption...

PROBLEM: Replaced Battery in New Key Fob and Remote stopped opening/closing doors and trunk but light flashes when buttons are pressed.

SOLUTION: Removed and Re-Installed new battery and remote became fully operational again.


Bought a new OEM Key Fob/Remote from Circle Porsche Parts because the cover and buttons on the Fob (only one) from seller had been sloppily glued together, looked like a Chinese replica, and functioned sporadically.

Took the Electronics (board) from the old remote/fob (did not replace battery) and placed it the inside the new OEM key remote/fob.

Also took the Transmitter from the old key and placed it inside the new remote/fob.

The New key/remote worked and the world seemed brighter and more full of hope...

Then, I thought, "hey, I should use the new battery that came with the new remote."

So, I cracked open the NEW key cover again, replaced the old battery with the new one, and went downstairs to try my new Key with new battery.

Pressed the unlock button, red remote light flashed but doors did not unlock... dark clouds rolled in and thunder cracked overhead as the scene turned biblical -- like something from a Moses movie.

I cursed the pagan Porsche gods for the hours of Porsche-key related anguish they'd inflicted upon me and climbed back onto my computer...in search of key redemption...
