So the old man just bought a jumbuck and the remote keyless entry doesn't work, no official forums or manuals have how to set it, so wondering if anyone here can figure it out. From what I figure its just been a flat remote and new battery means remote reset, just can't figure out how.
private buy i gather so you can't go back to car yard?
I think he wants to sync it. Most keyless ones from the factory require you to do something like put the key into an ignition, turn it to accessory for x time then wait then turn it to on for x then back to off or something.
this is how you do it on my lancer for the immobilizer (if fitted)
1. Connect the MUT-II to the diagnosis connector.
When the battery in my commodore remote went flat holden wanted hundreds of dorrah for a new key because apparently everything needed reprogramming, told them to stick it so take that as you will.
Yeah I tried the commodore way and nothing, guessing it might be similar to the lancer as its a Mitsubishi engine.
battery has been out of my lancer remote for a month or two now, if I can figure out where I put it (weird looking watch battery on steroids) I can try putting it back in & see if the central locking still recognises the key if you want?
Did the key ever work with your car? Maybe it's just the wrong key fob? Are you 100% sure you put the battery in the right way up?
will likely need reprogramming in one way or another.
I've changed the battery on plenty of different remotes without losing entry though.
you did say it was a "jumbuck" need there be anything else said..
It will buff out metal it wasn't that bad..
I was going to bring up what Mental posted..
The jumbuck is like the joke of the ute world. I imagine it is the same at the offices that run the safety tests, it is so ridiculously dangerous in an accident.
does the manual still say that it is unsafe to travel with kids in the front seat, kids should be place in the rear?
haha it has a 1 star safety rating.
The Proton Jumbuck isn't a ute - it's a garden wheelbarrow.
sell that piece of indonesian crap immediately and buy a japanese brand ute.
