ford focus C max 06 plate key fob problems
My key fob is not working and have been told that the fob is fine the reciever is the problem, if i disconnect the battery will this solve it.
welcome to the site, disconnecting the battery, it's worth a try, but before you do, have you got the code for the radio, because you'll be P*ss*d *ff if you have no music as well,
so what is the fob not doing, at a guess its not working the central locking, is anything else not working, check your fuses, you might have a short in the wiring somewhere which will blow the fuse
Car was frosted up opened okay with fob, after defrosting got home tried setting alarm with fob nothing. Have had fob tested by BMW tech who put a new battery in it and says fob is fine its the receiver, have tried reprogramming fob which car recognise's as everything works apart from alarm oh and the boot which kids put dead lock on so can't open it now without the key. Did try disconnecting the car battery to no availe and a lot of hunting for radio code which i found in the end.

Welcome to the site Joe, might sound a but daft, but is the battery in the fob needing changed?
Dont know how your kids managed to "dead bolt" the boot, but there should be something in the hand book that will tell you how to fix that.
The same goes for the code for the radio code, that should have been written in the instructions in the hand book for the radio, good luck.
Thanks smudger yes BMW tech checked the battery in fob that was fine but replaced it with a new one to be sure. Found radio code by chance in handbook, don't know how kids done it either " dead bolt"the boot the boot should open once you unlock the door's but this is not happening without the fob, bit of a pain shopping passing shopping through back door to kids to put in the back.
Thanks tom, its the alarms and the boot will not open, had alook at the fuses they looked fine.Learn't the lesson about radio as I tried it today( Disconnecting car battery) found the code in the end in my handbook which came with the car with one go left to enter the correct code. Still no joy after disconnecting car battery.
try resyncing your key to the immobilizer. it should tell you how to do it in the handbook.

Reason: missed something out.
