Brera remote central locking gremlin?
I've recently boughts a Brera 2006 2.4Jtdm and have an issue with the remote central locking - and seeing if anyone here has had a similar experience, and any advice to resolve it.
Its an issue occuring with both remote key fobs, and persists despite changing the key fob batteries with new ones. I have checked the fuses which seem ok. I have also replaced the car battery with a new one.
After parking the car overnight the remote key fobs refuse to open the car. In fact there is no response from the car on pressing any of the key fob buttons.
I can only get into the car by removing the emergency manual key from the key fob, and using this to unlock the car manually.
The car will start normally when I insert the key fob into the ignition.
After my commute to work, I can lock the car with the remote key fob. All 3 buttons are working at this stage, and continue to work if I return within about 4 hours. After that, I have to go back through the procedure of opening up the car manually.
Interstingly I've also noticed that when I try to open the car remotely with the fob, and it refuses - it seems to work straight away after I just unlock the car manually (without even starting the car).
Its getting fustrating, especially during this cold snap. Any advice is much appreciated.
