Fob / remote key for rover 216??

#1 Post by Servera Moll » Thu Nov 25, 2021 10:54 am

Hi everyone.

I have so far exhausted all avenues with no luck so thought I'd try here, I am trying to purchase a new fob / remote key for my Rover 216. Can anyone advise me on how or where I might be able to get one?

Any advice greatly appreciated.

Thank you

Do you have a fob already but it's not working, or do you not have any fob for it at all?

Hi,
Yes I have a fob. I have taken it apart and replaced the battery, but unfortunately it still isn’t working.

Hi,
Don’t know if this will help but if it a Lucas 17TN key fob you might be able to repair it yourself.
They suffer from a fatigue crack around one of the battery connections, you should be able to see the crack if you have a magnifying glass.
I resoldered mine and that cured it.
There might be a guide on YouTube if you search.
Regards
