Proton Waja Alarm Remote Control Problem

After using my Waja remote control for 2 years, it became not very sensitive. Sometimes work, sometimes don't work. Sometimes need to press several times. After a while, the remote become more and more insensitive. At the end, not able to lock at all. At first I thought was battery problem. Went to change battery to one of the remote. Still the same problem.

I have checked with 2 accesories shop in USJ 10, the answer from both of the shops are the same, "This is normal for Waja Alarm. Waja alarm will not last long. Cannot repair. Need to change a new set of alarm". I refused to change the alarm set because I think it can be repaired. I will check with service center or other shops before change the whole alarm set. I have no choice but to lock/unlock the car with key until I find a better solution.

This morning I did this to my alarm remote control:
1) Unsrew the key remote control and take off the casing.
2) Took out the circuit board and remove the black rubber on the
opposite side. I saw the variable capacitor (small screw).
3) I used a small screwdriver to adjust the screw.
4) Tried to lock\unlock the car..... surprisingly it worked.

  1. Hi,

    I was having the same problem with the Waja remote for the past 1 year such that I just manually lock the car with the keys without activating the alarm. My Waja is 8 years old.

    I was keen to repair it and was searching the Internet for the price of the alarm set but came across your blog. Tried your suggestions to adjust the screw in the remote control and IT WORKED!!!!!!

    I am so happy now. Thank you so much and Praise to the Lord.

  3. actually the screw is adjust the frequency range of the remote control. You can adjust its distance to maximum but it will consume more battery.

  15. I also have the same problem, waja's remote working inconsistently. In my situation, I observe the problem is some oxidation layer (gray in colour instead of shining metal colour) have developed at the metals where the battery have contact.

    I just scrape off the oxidation layer with some knife and some lighter fluid to wipe it off and the remote work well. Mind you, the underside of the metal contact is quite tricky to scrape, try sand paper if small knife is difficult to work with.

    Before this my remote red light inconsistently glowing even I've push the button continuously. Please try this simple and free solution provided the alarm is ok and the battery is good.

  16. Had the same problem. Left the two remote keys unused for three years and just used manual locking. Today I had to change my Waja's flat battery. The alarm went off and I had to bring out the circuit board out of the casing to cut off the alarm. Very cumbersome. I surf the net and came to your blog. Did accordingly. Voila!! My alarm came back to life perfectly! No need to waste money on new system that was going to cost me RM 150/-. Thanks Man!!!! Wonderful Tip!!
