    Default Remote Central Locking

    Really annoying now every problem i've had on this car (that's a lot anyone who's seen my posts will know) i have fixed except this one. Basically the remote central locking randomly works when it feels like. I've triend the reset thingy where you turn it to ignition and press the lock button on the key and nothing happens (unless im doing it wrong maybe??) any other suggestions guys as its annoying me that i cant sort it !!!

    Have you tried new batteries in the remote controls?

    Try putting a thin piece of card on top of the battery (or a folded up post-it note) and put the cover of the fob back on. This will help hold the battery in place - not unknown for there to be a dry joint.

    john1 - I have had the same problem for months now - decided to try and do something about it and have been told that it could be the SIM unit which is behind the steering wheel. Not a cheap option though and no way of knowing if it will cure it.

    Just to update anyone who has this problem and does a search like I did to come across this thread - I had my CIM unit replaced and it cured my intermitent key fob/remote locking problem. Has worked flawlessly since it was done 6 weeks ago.
