Remote

I had been having an intermittant remote. I cleaned the contacts, changed the battery, totally disassembled it to clean it, and nothing seemed to improve its performance. Finally it stopped working. Inspecting it closely and I noticed a grey component on the board that had broken loose, undoubtely from dropping it (see arrow). I soldered it back in position and it's working perfect! Just wanted to share my experience in case you guys have any remotes sitting in a drawer somewhere, Mike

Early on sailors navigated by the stars at night and the North star became the symbol for finding ones way home. Once you know where the Northstar is you can point your ship in the right direction to get home. So the star became a symbol for finding ones way home or more symbolically even finding ones path in life.

PS, that photo was taken with a Nikon 55mm Micro lens with a Nikon 8008s at a distance of about 3 inches with an SB-24 flash and Costco transferred it to CD, not bad! It would have been better with a ring flash but that is such a specific use 'toy' that I can not justify the expense. Mike

Yep - I had the same thing happen to my '96 remote about 6 months ago - one of the two leads was severed from the circuit board. I soldered it back in place and it has been fine since.

Excellent! I am glad to see that you experienced the same issue. Thanks, Kevin

I wish the keypad was available as a service part.....the symbols are worn off my '96 and the '93 remotes. I still have the second set of gold keys and remote for my '93 (that have not been used) but I want to keep them in original condition.

I need to find an ink that I can silkscreen the buttons with the words "LOCK", "UNLOCK", "TRUNK" and "FUEL" instead of those symbols....
