Visteon 41703 key fob for my 2003 2.5

Postby LiviMX5 » Sat Jun 08, 2013 5:24 pm

Hi bought a Visteon 41703 key fob for my 2003 2.5 from E bay but unfortunately I can’t get it to work. :(
I have tried a couple of programming methods from this forum but no joy.
Does anyone know of any way of testing the key fob?
The guy on E bay said the key fob was brand new.
Any help would be much appreciated.

Have you confirmed the one you have is that model.

On the Mk3 there are three makes of remotes. I too bought a Visteon one for £40 but was too busy to test it, a month later I found it would not work as the one on my car was another make and that is paired with the acceptor on the car.

Have you tried this?

Registering Keyless Entry Transmitters NB & NC
1. Shut all doors and remove key from the ignition switch
2. Open drivers side door
3. Insert key into ignition, switch ignition on, then off then remove key 3 times.
4. Close then open drivers door 3 times (all doors should lock then unlock)
5. Press unlock button twice on the transmitter (doors lock then unlock to confirm)
6. Press unlock button twice on all other transmitters to be registered to the car (doors should
lock and unlock to conform each transmitter registered)
7. Switch ignition on to cancel set-up mode.

Is the car compatible with remote central locking ?

Don't know if you upgrade to remote central locking by simply adding a remote.

My 2.5 Sport has remote, I'd be happy to try programming it to mine to confirm the remote is working.

Does the existing remote that you have work the locks! Not the one you have just bought.

Buying a fob without the kit on the car does not make it work.

It appears you system is not working and it is nothing to do with the fob.

The answer to my last question should be interesting.
