Key fob / receiver problems on Alfa 147 51 plate
I have looked at all the threads I can find on key fob issues, but none seem to solve my problem. Hopefully one of you will be able to help me out with this issue.
Recently the range on remote locking/opening has been getting much smaller and now the only way I can get the keys to work is to use them while pointing them through the windscreen.
I have 2 keys, and both have the same problem. I have replaced the batteries in the keys, and I have checked that all of the switches are not broken. Everything within the keys seem fine. The LED light works fine on both keys, so I don't actually think that the key is the problem.
Where is the receiver in a 147? Does it have its own power source or does it use the main car battery? Anyone else think that the receiver could be causing the problem?
Thanks for any help you can give me
