Hi there,\n\nI have a 1995 440 1.8 si. Last week the alternator died, which meant\nthe battery drained during a journey, and I was unable to start the car\nafter stopping for petrol. I recharged the battery, but found that my\nmain key fob was now unable to lock/unlock the doors.. although the key\nitself worked fine.\n\nThis obviously meant that the immobiliser was stuck on (because the fob\nis the only way to arm/disarm it). However, I tried the spare fob and\nit worked without a problem.. so I was able to drive the car to a local\ngarage and get the alternator replaced.\n\nTrouble is, the fob I gave them has also stopped working now.. Which\nmeans I have a perfectly fine 440 with a replacement alternator that is\nstuck in a garage and can't be started. The guy I took it to is\nscratching his head about this, so I guess he's not an expert.\n\nThe batteries in the fobs aren't suspect, and one has had them replaced\njust to be sure.\n\nSo I guess my question is; is there a reprogramming sequence or\nsomething that will fix this, or do I have to pay volvo to sort it out?\n\nNote that the immobiliser is the original factory fitted one. There is\nno alarm.\n\nThis is quite urgent, so any help would be appreciated.. I'm not a car\nguy, so go easy on me if I've missed something really obvious ;)\n\nCheers,\n\njames.
