Alright folks, right i have been having a nightmare with my key fob. The problem started a good 12 months ago. At first the key fob just stopped working but when i changed the battery it started working fine again, although i had to change the battery every 4-6 weeks
Then it stopped working one day changed the battery and nothing, reprogrammed the key fob (turning key in ignition from position II to position I 4 times and then the beep etc) that seemed to sort the issue out but only for a few weeks then the key fob started working whenever it felt like it once an hour, once a day, once a week.
I done the GEM test and i get a beep and the indicator lights flash with everything except for the key fob and when i open the front doors
Right now i think i have identified the problem, i read somewhere that if you change some options in the Gem module it disables the option of using your key fob (i have played around with the options a lot)and this can only be turned re-enabled is through Ford IDS. i have a modified ELM327 cable and when i go on to the GEM MODULE under Information on remote key receiver frequence there should be some numbers in there like this Gem Module 2.jpg 137.71KB 35 downloads
When i do this on my car this is what i get Gem Module.jpg 198.77KB 34 downloads
Is this likely to be where the problem is and if it is how do i go about getting it sorted?
