Another question and looking at my to do list, not the last!

My spare key doesn't work, so I have changed the battery, reversed the battery, reset the counter and now the key works as a key, opens the car but sets-off the alarm in less than 5 seconds. The alarm stops when I put the key in the ignition and I can start the car. The other key and remote works fine.

So I have two thoughts:
1) the key fob button for the remote is not working but the spare key is still communicating with the car in the ignition.
2) the alarm is going off quicker than the 20 seconds I have seen suggested to open the car and start the ignition, but hopefully that isn't a problem?

A key fob repair should do the trick here? I have seen keyfobrepairs.com suggested elsewhere on 911uk but their website seems to be down.

Obviously, I might have got it all wrong and looking for suggestions and guidance.
Thanks in advance
Graham

There is a great resto thread by Marky911 referencing a working transducer in the key and no need for recoding. Time for a PM!

Key has been sent to a long established business with people that answer the phone. Hopefully it’s fixable and I will up-date with details when I get the key back.
