    Story:

    1. sometime last June 2013, one of my office mate parked his car in a reputable shopping/grocery center. So of course he locked his cars using the remote switch went to shopping and then when the whole family came back, they noticed that two of their ipads was missing. luckily the idiots who stole the gadgets took picture of them while connected to the internet and they were caught. 1 out of 2 ipads was returned. According to police and security inspection, there is no sign of any force entry to his vehicle. luckily no family member was hurt.

    2. Monday August 5, 2013 i went to SM Molino. so i parked my car and tried locked it using the remote key. i got confused because i dont hear the usual "THUD - thud" sound when the doors are locking. i tried the remote for 10 times, start the engine switch it off then use again my remot unfortunately no response from the remote. so i locked my car manually.

    3. After my errands at SM Molino, my car is still on manual mode kaya napapakamot ako sa ulo kasi warranty claims ito at abala. pagdating ko sa parking ng office ko until today, wala naman problema door locks ko or the remote control

    kaya it made me think na isa itong bagong "modus operandi" that uses certain wave length or frequency modulator that block communication of this type of electronic device wherein if you are not like me, na sanay sa manual lock, you would not notice or even bother checking all the doors before leaving the car especially using the remote control.

    May nakaexperience na ba sa inyo ng ganito? or sobrang paranoid lang ako, kasi it made me connect what happened to my office since kung nagrely lang ako sa remote siguradong simot ang barya na laman ng kotse ko, (hehehehe).

    kaya payo ko sa inyo mga sir, ingat ingat na lang sa mga ganitong bagay.

    I have experience it once before when I park in a supermarket as well. I thought mahina na battery, pero dun lang siya mahina pag uwi ko normal naman ang car remote. TIngin ko something to do with intereference with that particular area. Hindi naman cguro gawain ito ng modus operandi imo.

    Always remove power source like batteries. Dismantle, then spray delibarately with contact cleaner, wipe extra moisture, then blow dry with not so hot air.

    Swerte kung tubig lang. Nokia phone ko nahulog sa dagat, sinisid kopa 15ft. Did contact cleaner method and voila! buhay pa.. After 3 days use salt water kicked in, ate the coppers gold plating was defeated. Multi-layered PCB kaya hindi din tumagal.

    binuksan ko lang, tanggal battery, air dry. pag salpak ko ng battery tumunog ulit. buti na lang may hair dryer.
    Car: Toyota Altis 2003, original factory keyless remote

    My remote got into the washing machine recently. After drying and changing batteries, the remote seems to work fine again, because it lights up when buttons are pressed. However, the car does not lock or unlock when the remote buttons are pressed. Does the remote need to be reprogrammed for my car? How do I do that?

    I have an older Lovelife Corolla with the same remote reprogramming issue. Any ideas how I can reprogram that one?

    Much thanks!
