I've been having some problems lately with my Remote Key not responding, and taking a few presses before it will lock/unlock car.
I disconnected the battery for 40 minutes, then reconnected it, and everything was back to normal and running fine. Key worked everytime.
Now I'm having the same problem again, but I've narrowed it down to having my headlights/fogs on.
When I've been running the car for a while with the headlights and foglights on, when I get park up and get out, and try using the remote locking, it takes ages before it will respond.
If I run car without headlights/fogs on, the key works perfectly.
Could this be a faulty battery? or alternator?
The battery I have has been changed since factory. I can tell because it says deisel on it when my car is a petrol
It has a light on it that is shining green which is good, and isn't red or black (shown on the diagram on the battery) for dead or needs topping up with fluid.
Anyone head of this before?
It may also be causing my radio to be having very rare hiccups. Sometimes when I start the car, it will start with Radio 4, or Radio 2, which I never have on... honest. Well sometimes Radio 2.
Also the part of the display at the top which shows which radio station you have on (full display, not 3 line display) the radio station will be blank, and the radio will go off for a second or 2, then come back on.
All a little strange if you ask me.
Anyone every had anything similar happen?
