I got it in today and read the directions. I took my remote apart and started repairing the keypad. On this remote, the rubber keypad can actually be taken out completely, making the repair much easier. what i did was use pure acetone to clean the back of the keys thoroughly. i first tested the acetone on a torn keypad to make sure acetone wouldn't destroy the rubber. i then placed a table lamp in front of me and slightly to the right of where i was working on the keypad. When i cleaned each key with acetone, i could tell it was clean by holding the pad up to the light. you could tell the cleaned key was a dull grey. once i cleaned all the keys, i started applying the fix. i read in the directions to use a cotton swab but i thought doing that would be messy and possibly apply too much. so i was using the a single tipped cotton swab for cleaning so i used the other end of it to apply the fix. i guess a matchstick would work just as well. after applying the fix on each key i would hold the pad up to the light and you could easily tell where the liquid coated the key. any areas that were missed were easy to see with the light.
The instructions say the product will dry to the touch in two hours and wait overnight before putting the remote back in service. i couldn't wait so i let the keypad airdry for 30 mins and then placed it under the lamp for another hour. the heat from the lamp helped speed up the drying process.
i put the remote back together and it works great!!!! i was able to clean off the smudges where i missed but it come off very easy. if the remote stops working then i know it's my fault because i didn't wait the suggested time but for now i am totally pleased with this product. i have 3 more of the same remote that i need to repair. each has a key or two that quit working. now with this product i'll have 4 working remotes!! i recommend this product.
Oh yeah, i forgot to mention. i repaired this remote by using only the product that was on the lid!! By using the wooden tip of the swab, it was very easy to apply it and apply it correctly!!
This is definitely worth a try, especially when taking into consideration how expensive replacement key fobs can be. Good luck! :)
UPDATE: I changed my 5-star review to 3 stars. Within about a month the key fob stopped working and I was unable to get it working again with this product. Not a good permanent fix, but that's okay because I don't NEED a key fob to unlock my car. :)
Follow up: after several months with VERY heavy humidity, the product still works fine.
I noticed it does work on the carbon contacts on the board, but you need to be a master to paint over the intricate layout. So for this project it was a total bust.
I did not give it worse review because my case is particular. I will hold to the chance to try on a TV remote or something similar.
I did notice the package said made in 2009 which was not encouraging but being a chemical I hope it has a long shelf life. I will try to post pictures later.
