Hello, I've recently bought an Escort 1.8SI [98], but there was no battery in the key fob, so i was hoping someone could let me know what sort i need?

Any help is greatly appreciated!

Thank You!

OK, I see that nobody here seems to know what sort of battery the keyfob of an Escort 98 takes, which i find a bit strange, but anyway, i've tried some round battery's that i bought from pound world but none of them work,so im thinking there must be a specific type!

Is there a specific type of battery that i need to get it working,and if so could someone let me know please as i can't find any info anywhere?


Thanks!

I honestly dont know.

Best bet would be to ring Ford or pop into a local dealer or Halfrauds or something

vinnyvangough......thanks for replying!, i probably will end up at fords but first i would like to see if i can fix it myself for free, - i think there might be a small metal plate thats missing,not sure though? - curious,do you know what the inside of the Escort [98] key fob consists of? i think there should be a small metal connection plate for the back of the battery to touch?, this missing part would explain why its not working?,but again i don't know for sure, could do with some help on this? - Anyone??


This is pretty much the same looking key as im talking about,but annoyingly i cant find a picture of the inside to show you properly,lol!
