Not quite.Is the test/ repair bench becoming obsolete,
The days are gone of circuit boards containing many discrete components which you could easily replace.
If you see many configuration solder pads so that you can tie pins 1 to 8 of this 16-pin chip to either GND or VCC, then its likely a chip in the PT2260 family of remote control encoders, which are very common chinese clones of an HOLTEX encoder chip pair.Burngate wrote: ↑Fri Jun 08, 2018 5:59 pmRecently, one of the key-dongle-things for my Scandinavian car turned up its toes - fortunately I've got a second one.
Tried changing batteries, no go.
So off to the local dealer. But they wanted £130 !!! For a key-fob!!! Then £more to register it with the car !!!
I've tried poking and prodding both the broken one and the known-working one, but no luck, as expected. There's just one multilegged chip on it, and it looks like that's what's broken.
And, of course, no details anywhere as to what that chip is.
I'm still not going to spend that sort of money. It may well be designed as a throw-away replaceable part, but in this case it's not going to be replaced.
