Post by mike178wright »

Hi all
I need some advise with my volvo V70 2001 on solving my issue with the key fob not responding at all now, meaning the whole car will not lock but will with the key issue started after a small fix to the alarm siren as mentioned in other thread i replaced with another siren and not sure where I've gone wrong??
Key fob worked great before...
Thanks in advance

Have you checked the battery inside the key fob?

Thanks for your responses guys
I tried the batteries firstly but seemed ok to me and after hours of reading other/similar topics and went through all what I changed or adjusted on the car at the same time I found that after I changed the internal mirror (second hand mirror from breakers yard) and then all started not to work with the key fob.. Old one went back on and all started to work again..
So In fact it was my mistake. I learn something new everytime I look at my car...
