Default Neither remote fob working now!!!

Hi all.

Whilst replacing the ignition barrel assy recently with parts from A8parts, the alarm triggered and since then NEITHER remote fob will work!

I've tried the reprogramming sequence, but without success, as I can only open the doors by manually using either fob. Remote batteries are almost new.

ANY HELPFUL SUGGESTIONS WILL BE GRATEFULLY RECEIVED!!!

Many thanks,

DailyMike.

Sounds like the keys may need re-coding but I'd recommend giving Craig Nettleton at Auto Solutions in Huddersfield a call as he is an expert from the Auto Locksmith point of view
07900-600548 or email craigynett@gmail.com
