we have now narrowed it down.
with the key put close to the handle it unlocks and locks……..ie with the infra red not having to go into ariel waves as the two infrared items are close to each other.
i have heard that the ariel wave unit is possibly the problem……..
so that is why the its not working from a distance…….
this is a unit that is behind the dash and is not receiving the air wave from the key and which is sending air waves to switch the lights on when the car locks and unlocks….and the keyless go?????????
