Key Fob not Unlocking doors


Recommended Posts

I had a problem where my key fob would not unlock my Kuga, my spare key had the same issue, I i pressed lock the lights would flash and locking could be heard. I opened the door using the manual key (great force is needed the arrangement in the key is not good), the alarm sounded but stopped when i placed the fob in the emergency location.

I attempted to start the car with the fob in my hand, notification on the dash, "no key detected" (both main key and spare). I then placed the fob in the emergency location in the center consul and started the car. I moved the car back and forth (not sure if needed), turned off the engine and everything had reset and both key fobs began to operate correctly.

I hope this is of use

This could mean 1 of 2 things.. the battery in the fob needs to be replaced. Then you'll have to take the fob to the dealership and have them reprogram the fob to your vehicle.

Shouldn't need reprogramming for new battery.

Do NOT buy ebay/amazon/chinese batteries

Only use ENERGIZER, PANASONIC or DURACELL, new from a reputable seller
