I accidentally placed a heavy object on my key fob at home. It must have been there for more than five minutes before I noticed the little light flashing on the fob.
Since then I have not been able to lock or unlock the car using the fob or set or reset the alarm or immobiliser, although the light still flashes on the fob when I press it. I have replaced the battery, but still no joy.
My assumption is that it has lost synch with the car, and my plan is to get it sorted when I take the car in for next service as I have a workaround (use the key and a manual alarm reset) - this is what the manual recommends.
But is there a way to resynch the key myself?
Update: This is a specialist import 2006 Forester STi with a CAT 5 immobiliser. And I have discovered it is a Cobra fob.
