This explains EVERYTHING!
« on: May 08, 2007, 03:49:38 PM »
This pretty much explains the entire battle I have had with my S4.

BOTH keys quit working a few days ago. Neither one will reprogramme.  :x  So I figure the batteries must be dead.

I got one key with the car, the other I bought later.

The one I got with the car is SUPERGLUED TOGETHER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I have been fighting it for an hour now and can't get the thing apart. I have tried soaking it in fingernail polish remover, knives, screwdrivers, vises, two people........ :evil:

that just sucks that someone super glued the dang thing together.

Though not uncommon, those switchblades are notorious for just falling apart once the battery cover ha been removed for the first time. There are lots of posts on PW with the same type of complaint.

you will need some acetone to loosten the superglue.  modern fingernail polish remover no longer has acetone, so you'll need to find something else that does.
