Heres another little irksome bug. The lock remote dont work. Where do i start on fixing it? Is there a battery in the fob? I dont want to brake it fixing it before i can fix it. Or do i need to look elsewhere for the fix?

The battery will be going flat. It won’t unlock the door, but the metal ring around the ignition can power the key circuit (does not recharge the battery as many claim) and the car will start.

The battery can be replaced, but it’s soldered in.

$120 for a new genuine key from MrMinit. Same key VR-VZ

there are a few videos on changing the key battery.

As I said, you can get a proper genuine key programmed by mister minit for about $120-130

Being a VP ute, would it have remote locking? I thought all the remote did was switch on the interior light (VR ute) Maybe being a HDT, it might have had central locking thrown at it....
