thanks for the replies, but I just realised I did not explain the problem I am having very well. The problem is the car does not seem to recognise the key - it is a ''keyless'' proximity fob so when the key is close to the car I should be able to put my hand inside the driver door handle and the car unlocks - BUT sometimes it does, [B]sometimes it doesn't, it is very intermittent, the same thing happens when trying to lock the car by pressing the button on the handle. Also when using the buttons on the fob to lock or unlock sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't. There is also an intermittent problem when having got into the car and pressing the start button doesn;t work until I move the key around the centre console and then it starts?!?!
I have had this problem for about the last 12 months, and used quite a few new batteries for the fob too. The car has been back to the dealer twice but surprise when they collected it everything worked perfectly.
anybody else had this issue??
thank you anyway
