Just got myself an el xr6 :D Shes modded out and fangs i love her.
had her for nearly two weeks now with no problems i couldn't fix save one.
the range on the remote was bad from the start. but within about a week it had me standing at the door pressing 20+ times before it unlocked.
now its useless even after a battery change. red light comes on. neither the doors or boot buttons work. reprogram process failed, im guessing because the remote buttons aren't being received for whatever reason.
any ideas?
I dont want to violate my poor girl stickin keys in her doors! :lol:

all you need to do is sand the 2 metal strips that make contact with the battery.
