Hello,

New to the forum and hoping to find some advice. A friend of mine this morning said they couldn't start their engine, it was during the school run so they had driven it that morning already so not a result of a flat battery, it's a 2015 Juke RS. They also said there was a key symbol on the dash showing (don't know which colour). I got them to try holding key next to start/stop switch while brake pedal held down and nothing happened (I can't know of course if they did this correctly).

So I went and bought a CR2025 battery and replaced it in the keyfob. Then I tried holding it near the Start/Stop button while brake pedal held down and it worked. Now car can start/stop with remote not needing to be held near button, so all good.

But .... Keyfob no longer opens/shuts doors. When pressing buttons nothing happens. The key symbol is still showing in orange on the dash.

Also tried the spare key, same thing happens.

Thanks for any advice.

Hi Andy,

Did you ever find the fix to this? I'm currently experiencing this myself and trying to figure out what the problem is.

Thanks

Yes :) I had put the battery in the wrong way, once it was in the right way it worked :ROFLMAO: Hope the fix is as easy for you.

Wish it was that easy, double and tripled check the battery. All installed ok. must be a key issue
Well I thought I had done it the right way initially so thought the problem more serious. I went out and when I came back my father in law had also had a go - bought and replaced the battery. I decided to take the key fob apart again and noticed it was the wrong way so flipped it round and it worked. I can only imagine that a) I too had put it in incorrectly, or b) taking it apart again and refitting it made it work - better contact? c) Maybe father in law bought a different bettery type and it worked once installed (I remember seeing different codes mentioned in the manual / online etc)? Sorry can't be of more help. The issue though was definately with the key fob even though I'm not 100% sure what fixed it. Ruled out a possible immobiliser issue. Does the Juke have a process to reprogramme key to car - check the manual? Good luck!
