Hi folks, Newbie here. Just bought a MY2000 MGF VVC and am slowly learning my way around the car. It came with 2 key fobs with badly worn buttons so it's impossible to see what the symbols on them used to be. According to the handbook, one button is for locking and the other for unlocking, but only the right-hand button on my fobs seems to do anything - locks and unlocks. So, what the hell is the other button for?
Hmm, a mystery - mine doesn't seem to do anything - locking button plips up and down only when I press the right button. Thanks for your replies, I shall try opening it with my head, so to speak (in the garage with no-one watching!)
Sounds like your fob is creamcrackered, Try fitting a new battery, then resynch the fob, also try standing very close to the car and point the fob at your forehead this seems to strengthen the signal. If you still have troubnle, give me a PM we have some spare fobs , I can send you one, then you can take your innards out and put them in it, see if that helps.
Technozen also has a very handy thread on troubleshooting fobs.
