That chip looks like it was made for the UK AND American Fords. I say that because I have a Ford Mustang with that same key FOB, but with four buttons laid out just like the circuit board (lock, unlock, panic, and trunk).
We finally got the transit over here across the pond in the US, so much better. I drive one for work as an IT guy (hauling Network switches, Routers, Handhelds for a major US Retail Chain)
Clive - love your channel. Keep up the good work.
I really liked this channel until you said I really like the Fords haha
You need to get an electron microscope so you can trace the circuitry inside the chips!
Just been to the isle of man and was wondering if the Transit is cheaper there or something, because there are so many of them driving around there.
I think the SMD on the left might be a ferrite bead to VCC and the right one is a npo capacitor to GND.
clive has a super creeper van. that s awesome.
i like the black dirty fingernails
My guess is: In the antenna loop, the component connected to + is probably a resistor or a coil that feeds the collectors in two transistors in the IC, while the component connected to gnd is a capacitor, - all adding up to a push/pull configuration.
I ve never seen a fob without a panic button before.
Are you aware there is a fake big clive?
hey, my mate has some fishing alarms that it s really hard to get hold of lr23a batteries which are 12v, would it be possible to hook up a box type battery that is also 12v or would the alarms not be able to take the amperage?
My Toyota keyfob works from anywhere inside my house, from the back garden with the car round the front and also locks and unlocks my neighbour s Lexus.
off topic, why do american power points not have an earth pin?
