This might be of interest to the techies among you ...

My wife has a 10 year old Toyota Yaris Verso, which has two 2-button key fobs. The Lock button ceased to work on both fobs. You can use the key but can't operate the deadlock that way. The dealer quoted £120 to supply and program one new module.

I decided to open them up and this is what I found in both:



The shiny square thing at the top is the Lock switch. It's about 5mm square and was attached to the circuit board by four soldered joints. I say "was attached" because all the joints had given way and it had rotated by 45 degrees. Hence it would still click when you pressed it but obviously wouldn't do anything.

Fortunately I have the tools and skills to repair this sort of thing, and within half an hour both were fully working again. This is what they should look like:



I assume the Lock button failed because it gets pressed twice as much (to operate the deadlock).

Now, who said the bar's open early? :Banane35:

"Theres ya problem guv!"

"10 year old Toyota, ooooh!" :biggrin:
The car itself is fine, just a slight QA problem with the keys ...

It's a brilliant shopping trolley, a great skip on wheels for going to the tip and a handy taxi for our Great Dane. :icon_razz:
