My car's remote does not work even with a new battery.
It switches on, but it does not release the locks.

Do you
have the same problem?

The remote is probably bad. You will need a new remote and to program it. The instructions are below.

If the spare fob works you need to check the fob that is not working, it might need reprogramming.

How to program savvy keys.

[1] Turn ignition to the "on" position.

[2] Hold reset button [white dot one on the switch cluster ] in on the dash and keep it depressed.

[3] Turn ignition to "off" and remove the key. [Still holding in that button]

[4] Reinsert key and turn ignition to on. [Still holding in that button ]

[5] Now release the reset button on the dash.

[6] Press either the lock or unlock button on the fob while its still in the ignition lock.

[7]You will hear a Beep and the red immobilizer LED light flashes and the doors will lock.

[8] Now with the second key fob press a button and [beep/flash/doors lock.

[9] Switch ignition to off.

There is plenty even I do not know. Proton does not really share information with the buyers of their cars. If your looking for a workshop manual then you can get one here.

Not long released for the gen2 and savvy..

Lots of information to be had if if you join. www.protonownerclub.co.uk

At least you have more information than me. It is true Proton does not share their information. I am from where the car is manufactured and I am still having problems getting information.

Thanks again.

I have a Proton Wira Aeroback 2001 - 4G15 engine and both of my original remotes are not working.

1. If I buy an aftermarket key less entry system, would it be possible to program those remotes to use with the security system I already have in my car? If so, please let me know how to program them?

2. If I get uncut Waja keys, which has the remote option included, how do I program them to use with the security system I already have in my car?
