right, bear with me, as to be honest, unfortunately, when it comes to hands on stuff, i'm pretty useless. i've read the relevant guides here, and must say a huge thankyou, as they are very helpful and offer a wealth of knowledge.
so, here goes, 1st i'm not sure if my fob is the3g mk1, or 3gmk2. its black, with the missing corner, and has 2 buttons, 1 red and 1 grey.
for the past few weeks, when i've locked the car on the fob, all the doors lock, the alarm activates, but then the drivers door pings back open? so i just lock this 1 on the key, and all is well. when opening the car in the morning, everything opened fine off of the key fob.
anyway, tried the car today, and as i pressed the fob to open, i heard the audible beep, but immediately thought it sounded, a touch quieter than normal, then went to open the door, but it had remained locked, in fact all doors were locked. i managed to open it on the key, but only the drivers door opened. if i try and open the rear door, by pulling the button up, it just drops straight down again in the closed position. with the alarm de activated, and door open, i noticed, the fuel filler cap remains locked??? is this the norm.
so, after reading the guides, (remember, i;m useless) i have replaced the batteries in both the key fobs i have, and tried unlocking the car via passenger side as instructed, but all seem fruitless, as the car still won't fire. it turns over fine, although some dash lights seem to flash abit oddly, abs and the like, but the car just won't go, it feels as if maybe the immobiliser has activated.
does this seem right to those in the know?
is there anything else i should be trying?
or am i now best to go down the re program route, which, obviously concerns me, for a man with no knowledge, other than, oil, water, tyre pressures etc, i really am that bad, put tools in my hands, and you'd wet yourself laughing at the results
any help, advice, greatly recieved, also noticed if it helps, on the back of the key fob, a worn out sticker, that looks like it says, gemel italia
thanks in advance, neil
