The remote key fob on my 05 Micra is taking up to 20 odd presses

This answer was rated:

The remote key fob on my 05 Micra is taking up to 20 odd presses (five minutes) to work and unlock the car. The spare fob is the same so presumably the problem is within the car - is there a contact or sensor that may have got dirty?
Jake :

Hi there, there are actually multiple antennae pick ups around the car.

Jake :

by each boor and the trunk

Jake :

they rarely fail either, although they do on occasion.

Jake :

anytime someone has an issue such as yours, I would first tell them to replace the batteries in there remotes since you can get a set of 2 batters for under $5

Jake :

then I would tell them to remove there FOB off there keys in case they have a speed pass or something similar interfering with the RFID signal

Jake :

let me know how you make out with this please.
