    F430 FOB key stopped working

    One of my 2 FOB keys stopped working yesterday. The other key is fine.

    It is dead. If I press it, it does not disarm the alarm, or unlock the car.

    I assumed it was the battery as it is over 3 years old. I replaced the battery, but no joy.

    Is there an initialisation process required after battery change. The manual has no instructions on initialisation etc.

    Thanks

    I know for some high end car keys, after you replace the battery or buy a new replacement key you have to get them reprogrammed. I'm going to go on a limb and presume the same applies to Ferrari. Most times this is something done at the dealer,however many enthusiast boards will have the sequence posted. I'd probably asks this question over on F Chat to see I anyone has the info.

    OK Thanks for your advice.

    I contacted my dealer and he is happy to reprogram the key.

    I would like to do this my self if I can, just reduce the time/hassle factor of booking the car in. Will search on Fchat

    if you merely stick the key in the door and open it, the system should automatically re-boot itself.  My 430 key would do this after 5-7 days of inactivity........    Best of luck.
