    Angry STI keys

    hello everyone,
    the un-lock button on my wireless remote does not work, after taking it apart and trying a new battery i found that the switch that the button hits was jammed in, and also disconnecting from the circuit board. Does anyone have any tips on how to un-jam it, or possibly trying anything else, or is it time to by a new remote?

    From my experience, circuit boards that small are usually more trouble then they are worth. Although yours "may be" fixable, unless you have a good soldering iron and a steady hand I would just get a new one.

    You can find them pretty cheap on ebay, I have never personally got one from there but I would presume they would work just fine.
    Carpe Diem!

    This is a tell-tale sign you need a new remote...pretty common problem actually...Ive seen it more than once...as mentioned the new remotes even from the dealer aren't to horribly expensive...however I guess if you feel like trying to repair it you have nothing to loose really....
