2008 CX9- I had to replace the battery on the Wireless Entry

Customer Question

2008 CX9- I had to replace the battery on the Wireless Entry FOB. Locks and unlocks doors but ignition is now disabled. It is the same key and board that worked previously.

It is the keyless FOB- Is that what you are asking? Nothing in the vehicle.
Not advanced- only for doors (and it seems also the ignition inhibitor)

O.k.,my info is speaking of a card which is different then what you have here.

I will open your question up for others here to see if someone else can assist further on this as there may be others here that may have more info on what to check or do with this issue.I hope you can get this resolved with ease.No need to reply to my last post here unless it is a last resort as it will keep your question locked to me and others will not be able to view it.If you feel you want to continue to work with me on this feel free to reply at any time but keep in mind in some cases it can be difficult to fully diagnose or help repair this without seeing your vehicle.

Thanks Pete
