Remote/key no longer working


Hope this is the right place to post. Have done a search of previous threads but can't find anything that matches this problem

I've just got home and have found that neither my husband nor my key remote will lock the car. The red light on the key is flashing (thereby indicating that it's working) but the car isn't responding at all.

I've tired it again after waiting half an hour (just in case that magically fixed it) but there's still no response.

Any suggestions or is it just a trip to the dealer?

Cheers....

Nat,

I am not sure about the T31 but with the T30 xtrail model, if one door is not shot properly or the tailgate is left open a bit, the central locking will not work and the car won't lock even if you kept pressing on the remote.

So, just walk around the car and make sure that all doors including the tailgate are firmly shut.

Yes Jalal
T31's do exactly the same.
Its good, at least you know that when you press the button and nothing happens, you know that there is a door adjar.

Re: Remote/key no longer working


We went out again last night and opened and closed all the doors - there's no 'door ajar' warning so that doesn't appear to be the problem.

What's weird is that we had friends over and they had problems with the central locking on their Forester as well! There appears to be a new and very strong wireless network in our area so we're wondering if that would be enough interference to disable the remote? There were a couple of posts on the board that I came across when I searched that mentioned interference.

Will take the X-trail down the road in a bit to see if it's going to work and if not we'll nick into the dealer and try to con them into having a look - bit problematic having a car you can't lock!

For those of you who've headed off to the meet, hope you're all having a wonderful time at the caves.

Cheers...

Problem solved! It was interference. From our wireless doorbell of all things. Turns out that the receiver for our wireless doorbell is flat so we didn't realise that the bell press was stuck in the on position (normally when this happens it dings incessently and we get the hint!). Anyway, unstuck it and voila - the exy will lock again.

Thanks to all for their hints.

Cheers...

Hey Nat

You know, you could always use the long silver bit on the end to lock your car. I remember not that long ago when our cars only came with the silver bit on them emoticon emoticon emoticon

Stephen,

Funnily enhough we tried that but it would only lock the drivers door and nothing else! emoticon

It's not so long ago that we had a car that only locked with the shiny silver thing too :-)
