    hi guys ..help me out. remote key got washed in the washing machine.took it out and dried on hot sunlight for almost 1 hr..not working.what to do?
  2. Go to TASS and see if they can fix.If they can't they'll order a new one make sure you have the key card ready.You'll find the key card in you glove box. It might cost you though i don't know how much
  3. TASS should be in a position to repair this for you. Dont worry !
    New keys will cost you around Rs. 7000 approx. Just ensure that you have the card with the code intact.

    The battery might have gone. Try replacing the battery. The directions for replacing the battery is in the Handbook. If it still does not work, you will need the code card to get a new one ordered at the dealer.
  5. I doubt battery has gone. The remote would have worked even after washing if battery was not there.Battery caused a short circuit when water came in contact with the remote. Most likely you'll have to replace the remote.Thats how solid state electronics work unfortunately.

    To my knowledge , one set of key , ( 1 with remote & 1 normal key ) costs INR 12000 , you've to buy both as a set.

    check it if it can be repaired.

    Good luck

    I believe you can use the key without the remote functionality. Try removing the batteries and dry it once again, if you are lucky it might work. My understanding is that as long as the device is not operated while wet, it might be possible to recover.

    The reason for its high price is :
    1) Its unique design ( desmodronic ) , the slot on both the sides are machined on VMC ,Its virtually impossible to duplicate.
    2) Its made in Italy

    The cost of Punto's Desmodronic Foldable Key is Rs. 5000-odd TASC needs to order it & it takes time to arrive.
