    ok, it's very strange, sometimes it works no problem other time it wont work nuless i am stood right outside the car, seems like the signal is being blocked somehow, is it possible there could bea loose connection or something near the aerial received part or something similar? It does seem to work slightly better with new batteries but it seems after about 2 weeks the batteried make it work when it likes again. can anyone shed any light on anthing that will help it work as it should do?
    Cheers, Jay

    dnt know bud, myt need reprogrammed?...I know if you hold the fob at your head and press to lock or unlock it, it somehow sends a stronger signal. Seen on Top Gear. Pretty amazin.

    I have same situation, I think it has got worse as wireless netwroks have got more prevalent on our estate.

    On a car park anywhere else it works from 30+ metres away. On the drive sometimes I have to stand and put the dibber right next to the windscreen. After about 8am it's fine - I assume everyone has turned their stuff off and gone to work.
