Freak incident with remote key fob (156)
Arriving home from work went to lock the car with the fob. Did not work first time, which is strange. Worked second time.
However a couple of hours later went to open the car with the fob, and no response. I knew the battery was okay, and also the led was flashing, and microswitches 'clicking'.
Changed the battery immediately (I alway carry a spare......you'd be mad not to on these cars!), but still no response.
Tried again about 45 minutes later, and it opened. Freaked out by this incident, I've decided to lock the car with the key, and not bother arming it.
I only have one key, and have avoided thus far forking out the extortionate price for a replacement key. Not sure if I can hold out much longer.
Anyone know of why this might have happened ??
