key fob not working only at close range :|

I've got a very annoying problem with my 147 which has only started happening recently.I cannot unlock the car from say 2 metres or more away and sometimes i actually have to touch the key on the body of the car to get it to unlock and lock.It seems to work better on the passenger side though.Has any1 else experienced this ? it also happened with my old 147 aswell and I have put new batteries in both controllers and they still do it .Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated

I had this problem on my old 147 and I 'think' it was something to do with the actually controllers, maybe a bit of soldering required, but I can't remember for sure.

I think it may be happening to the one I have now, so if anyone can come up with a difinitive answer it'd help me out as well!.

I have the same problem. I had the problem on my Fiat Barchetta and I fixed it with a bit of soldering. I´ll try the same on the alfa fob, I´m sure it´s the same.
