News You Can Use

One of the Jaguar key fobs did not survive the washing machine.  My attempt to transplant the PC board into a new case was for naught.  My insurer covers replacing the fob with a $100 deductible under comprehensive, although not the $185 reprogramming fee.  (That process us absurdly complex )

Since the fob costs $400 this made my day.


  1. When you get your new key, cover it with some conformal coating.

    Cheap and while not perfect, it makes things much more waterproof.
    You can also waterproof(ish) the pushbutton switches with lots of products.

    1. Suggestions? The emergency key is inside. If I have to tear off the coating, that's fine.
