Faulty car keys - cheap fix

You replied to an an owner with problems unlocking.

My son has had 2 x this problem and fixed them both for a few pounds.
IS & RAV4 key not functioning.

Bought blank keys off Ebay , transferred the electronics and old blade into new housing and just to complete the job a new lithium battery - total cost under £10.00 for 2 cars.

This will not fix issues where the electronic board is faulty but often the problems are mechanical aspects of the pushbuttons.
