156 central locking problem

Like all alfa drives (or so it seems) I too have my electrical disturbance. It is as follows:
Sometimes, when trying to lock the car with my (factory fitted) remote, the central locking doesn't work. Not by using the remote on the key, but also not when turning the key in the acutal lock. The door locks, but only that door, and not all four, like it should work. So definitely not key related.
Solution: get back into the car, put the key in the ignition, turn it to acc-position and back, and take the key back out. Now everything works fine again. Happens about once a month. Anyone else with the same problem?

yep, used to happen once a month, except in summer happens about twice in three months.

on a very hot day recently only one of the door would lock with the key - started it up a few times and was fine

quality, quality, quality ...

yeah used to happen on my 1.8 1999; not yet experienced it (thankfully) on my V6.
Annoying problem - but hey it's all part of the alfa experience!!
