Having problems with your 2004 Isuzu Rodeo ?

The remote was working fine but then a fiddler fiddled with the tear drop shaped remote and pulled the soft buttons out or shall i say ripped them off, can the rubber covers only be replaced ?

So what your saying is a fiddler, fiddled and now a tattler is telling. Be very careful. Normally a fiddler is content with fiddling with small relatively unimportant items. But when they are aroused, mostly by tattlers, they can be truly devastating to your happy home. They will leave nothing but devastation in their wake......I mean I think......well that's what I've heard....Who me? No I would never fiddle......well I guess I might you know if it was warranted. Which in all cases it is....Why? Well cause I said so tattle tail. Maybe the rubber needed to be ripped off. Yea, you never thought about that did you. God knows what would have happened if it wasn't fiddled with. So you just count yourself among the lucky to have a fiddler to save you and just forget about those dangerous rubber coverings.

Because you probably can't replace just the rubber covering. About the only place to check is the dealership and you know what that's likely to cost you.

There are places that provide refurbished key fobs.
Click the links below for a refurbished key fobs for your year and model. Around $50, Ebay will be the cheapest. Unless this is for an aftermarket key fob. Then you may need to go to the manufacturer for that.




I do not know how old your fiddler is but I learned real quick that if I didn't fix what ever I fiddled with....well lets just say I walk with a slight limp. ";-) So depending on the age make them fix it.

I really hope this helps and good luck.

Oh and remember both Albert Einstein and Steven Hawking were born fiddlers.
There is acseller on Ebay.com.au , yes Australia selling the buttons made out better material than origianals!

I have lost the keyless remote for my 2008 chevy cobalt coupe lt and have just gotten one of my valve stems replaced. The guys there did not know how to reset my tpms without the keyless remote. I read the manual which says while the key is in the on/run position to press the set/reset and info buttons at the same time for one second. Then press the info button until it says Learn Tire? The problem is that my set and reset buttons are two separate buttons. I tried pushing all three buttons (s

I took my VW in for service, it was running rough, not getting enough power it felt like. The dealer replaced two main control modules. EXpensive!!. When I went to pick up the car, the windows and radio did not work. They replaced the convenience module. The windows now work, however, they said the radio is now broken and will not work. My questions is, did whatever they replace effect the radio in any way? Now they say there is no radio available. Did I get ripped off or what.

They probably diconnected a wire when they were monkeying around in there, demand that they look to see if a wire was knocked off when they were working on it or you will report them to the Consumer protection commission and the better business burea ... 1998 Volkswagen Passat

Vehicle exhibits surging during low speed maneuvers (i.e. manueveing in parking spots, initial accelerations, ...). Dealership says it is due to a defective throttle body but won't cover it on extended warranty but throttle body is an exclusion. I believe the throttle position is controlled electronically (fly-by wire), but it is non-replaceable on the throttle body, ergo why a new throttle body is required. Is this truly the cause of the problem? Nobody has had their throttle body replaced

What I would try and do frist is get some throttle body sray cleaner and mass air flow sensor sray clean both out, also check air filter make sure it's clean.Hope this was very helpful. ... 2007 Ford Freestyle Limited

We had rats in our volvo engine. during christmas and they chewed on a few of the wires in wire loom. the wires are not broken only the covering was eaten. Now the our Volvo garage say they need to replace the whole wire loom, 30 hours labour plus part costs. Is it not possible to replace the 3 wires only or put insulation around the exposed area instead?

All depends on the extent of the damage and the skill of the shop guys: the wires can't be independently replaced but they can be spliced up back together and everything insulated again. But they would need to make absolutely sure that every single d ... 2006 Volvo V50

Hi Jcram. You will have to remove the fan cover in order to remove the radiator. Take digital pix along the way and label the parts so you can put it all back correctly. Once all of that is done, replacing the thermostat will be a piece of cake. ... BMW 525

2004 Ford Focus wagon headlights: the low beam only covers about 30 feet of visibility out in front of the car.

Lights not adjustable? Hmmm. Is this because the adjustment mechanism is seized or they just didn't want to do them? According to the manual they are adjustable.It is also possible the reflective quality of your headlamps has been compromised b ... 2004 Ford Focus
