2007 Skoda Fabia 1.4 petrol - Remote packed up - 2007 Skoda Fabia - sydney the oz

The remote locking controller packed up this monring on the main key, but the spare remote works OK. I've changed the battery on the faulty unit but this makes no difference.

The manual says you can reprogramme these remotes in the ignition barrel by holding one button down with the ignition on for 1 second. So if I buy a second hand key can I do this to reporgramme/match the 'new' head?

I can replace the existing lock barrel insert onto the 'new' head but does anyone know if this will work please?

You can use the correct s/hand button fob,but you must remember to use your existing key blade section ,as this contains the chip for the immobiliser system.

Got the replacement key and tried leaving the iginition on with one key, locking the drivers door manually with the other whilst pressing either the lock/unlock button on the 'new' remote, expecting the horn then to beep or hazards to flash, and the 'new' remote to reset. No horn, no reset.

Anything else to try before the auto locksmith?
