Land Rover HSE Freelander Key FOB Rechargeable Battery Replacement

Customer had a Key FOB where the remote transmitter suddenly stopped working. We learned that these Key FOBs are rechargeable however after several years, the battery stops charging.

We looked further into the board and battery used, and we were able to source the exact same original rechargeable batteries which Land Rover uses, we soldered it onto the board and the Key FOB worked again. We also put the electronic board into a new high quality land rover shell to make it look brand new again.

Honda / Lexus / Toyota / Chrysler Remote Key Head Tip for Car owners

Do you own a Honda? or Lexus? or Toyota? or any of the vehicles that have a remote key head?

This key has the remote transmitter integrated in the same head instead of having it separate. If you do, we suggest holding the key as close to the metal blade as possible in order to increase the life of the shell. If you don’t, you will experience a broken key blade from the shell.

Next time we work on one, will post pictures before and after we refurbish them.
