147 1.6 Lusso

147 keyfob doesn't always unlock

I've got a 2001 147 Lusso 1.6. On a number of occasions I've found that the keyfob doesn't unlock the doors when pressed. If I then try to open the drivers door with the key the alarm goes off. I then need to press the keyfob to turn off the alarm.
One one occasion this week I found that pressing the keyfob seemed to open the boot (!), although I'm 100$ sure that I pressed the right button.

Has anyone else had similar experiences?

Well Happy Re: 147 keyfob doesn't always unlock

BE CAREFULL! I had similar problems within the first month of owning my 156, the key fob I got was the original, so it had been used hundreds of times.
They are quite delicate and if continuously pressed like I did stupidly, the unlocking button can get stuck. When you go to open the car with the key itself you still haven't turned off the alarm/immobiliser.

If you do break the fob, this link might get you out of trouble.


Go to tips and then down to Button Flip Key Guide
