Hey all,

I have a prelift Fiesta
and having some problems with the key.

Basicly that battery ran out on my keys, so i brought a new battery and replaced it myself, but the buttons on the fob no longer work and when i try to open the car manually the alarm goes off.

I do have the spare key (no buttons but has a blue chip) which i can use manually.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Been speaking to ST07 and he recommended:

Turn the key from 0 to ign2 , four times, very quickly, until you hear a BEEP from the dash, THEN press a button on EACH keyfob, then wait a minute and they should work.

^^^ i did the above and DID get the beep but the buttons do not work.

Kinda think my chip is knackered, if a brought one from the Internet (a blank one) is it the same process to activate it to my car??

Bare in mind it's just the button part the key part is/will be the same and I'll just attach it on the key once arrived, will that work?
... otherwise are there any other options.

Thanks
Dave.
