    Default Remote Locking/Alarm Problem (tried resyncing fob)

    I have an intermitant problem with the remote locking/alarm. On random occassions I park the car, get out, shut door, press key fob lock button...nothing. Have tried resync, have tried other key fob, nothing. End up manually locking car. Then come back later try again and it MIGHT work, or after a drive it MIGHT work. Is very annoying! Anyone any suggestions??

    Should have mentioned, I changed battery in both fobs to no effect.

    I wondered if it could be the receiver on the car? Anyone know where it is? Or know of any faults?

    Could you explain what you mean by "reading the codes"? How do I do this and what does it do? Thanks

    If you get an electrical fault with a component on you car sometimes it will throw up a fault code to tell you what wrong. Normally people get them read from a auto electrican but on most vec c you can do ityour self. With the pedel test. I would throw up a link to how too do it but on my iPhone sure someone else will do it

    Try putting a thin piece of card, or a folded post-it on top of the fob battery to push it down slightly harder.

    Ultimately though, if it is a dry joint, then best o have it resoldered.

    I found the thread on the pedal thing for the code. I'll give it a try tomorrow... though it's been in lately for a couple of things and you'd think they'd have seen any fault when they were doing the injector and glow plugs on two seperate occassions.

    As for the battery, it's very strange if both key fobs had the same fault which is what makes me think it's at the car end. No idea where to start though!
