    Default Remote Key Signal Range-Vec B

    Guy's,

    My remote key fob for the Vec-B is now only opening and closing from very close range and pretty much when I point it into the car.

    Its really frustrating as sometime's if I forget to lock it, I have to go back outside the house by the car, or if im at work, I have to walk right up close to it.

    I have changed the battery, etc.....any idea's why the range is so short?


    Bye bye Vec B

    This does work as your body acts as an antenna!

    Walk back from the car until the remote stops working, then put it to your head, (i put my remote under my chin), then try again.

    This is not an April fool, it does work.


    Snowman, you got your ears on?
