It has been 8 years in business of Lock and Keys. I get so many queries related to repairing of car keys and remotes (Special thanks to Carwale.com which has really made me famous Innocent) . Most of the car owners believe in DIY (Do It Yourself) strategy. In order to help and assist them I am starting this thread to share my knowledge and experience with them.

-----------------------------------------

Most of the qeries are for self-procured key shells / Flip Keys which car owner has either bought from eBay, Amazon, Alibaba.com, Aliexpress.com or other Websites and doesn't know How to assemble them.

-----------------------------------------

You can ask any questions related to repairing /assembling these Flip Keys, Remote Keys, Remotes, Repairing Remotes or using components from other keys to make your key work again.

------------------------------------------

If you have got replacement shell / outer body for Fiat Punto (from some online website) or Linea and struggling to fit that then you can take help of this video to replace the casing by your self.

Here are few tips helpful in fitting this:

  • Linea shell has 3 button and can be used in Punto if you are unable to find 2 button flip shell for Punto.
  • Both Linea and Punto has glass transponder. You should be careful in extractring that from your old key as if it breaks, Car will not start.
  • There is screw below Fiat Logo, you need to open that screw to remove old casing. Do not unnecessary pull the key apart as it may damage the circuit.
  • Old key blade can used easily in new shell (see video). No need to go to locksmith for getting the new blade cut

We got an oppurtunity to repair Land Rover Flip Key. This key has a sealed casing (You can't even change the battery) and use industrial glue to seal it permanently. You need to break the outer casing to have an access to internal circuit and reuse it ultimately in a new Flip Key Shell.

The outer body can be purchased from EBay or Amazon for repairing purpose.

Hi Yogesh,

I have a couple of remote remotes for my SX4 (fixed code system I guess). The one that I have been using regularly, recently started malfunctioning i.e. did not open or close every time I press the button. I thought it could be a battery issue and therefore got it changed. However, just a few days later, it stopped working completely. Thankfully, I have the reserve key and remote and am using that. But I don't want to end up in a situation where i loose this one (or it too stops working) and I am left with no remote at all to open or close the car.

Can you advice me on the reasons my first remote has stopped working and how can I repair it (or get it repaired)?

@Ali


In your Swift, there are 2 possible cause of this malfunction

  1. Either Lock Button is faulty, which can be repaired using this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=euOLcp-G-Bw
  2. or there is switch in your boot, which gets pressed when you close the boot. Either that switch is not working properly. Open the boot, Find that switch, usually along with boot lock near the rear bumper. Just press & hold that switch with your finger as deep as possible and check Lock button again. Rest of the car should remain closed except the boot. If it works then that button needs to be replaced.

Key can be duplicated by your local locksmith. We are far from you (www.flipkeys.in / Panchkula) so can't make the key.

@Himanshu.Singh


Please send photo of your remote by whatsApp to +91 9876 9999 44 for more details

Thanks Himanshu, I have checked your suggestion. The remote worked when I pushed down the button in the boot. Please advise further...
