|Citroen Xsara - Remote Central Locking Problem (Memory Loss?) - Luke Johnson|
This is my first car which i brought in July 2010. (51 Reg 1.6 VTR Coupe)
When purchased i was aware that i could not operate the central locking remotley due the the battery in the keyfob being flat.
The central locking works manualy with no problems, but i wanted to get it to work remotely. I brought a new battery for the key fob and still the central locking did not work. I decided to follow some advice id seen while browsing the internet. See below.
After completing this procedure, the remote worked correctly!!! I was able to lock and unlock the car with the remote! Succsess! ^_^
Unfortunatley my problem is that if the car is left for any length of time, i am unable to unlock it remotley again! it is as if it forgets or loses its memory! I am still able to unlock it manually but that does not deactivate the alarm, which goes off untill i put the key in the ignition.
After driving the key fob will work again (lock and unlock), but again after i come back later it will not unlock. (I am unsure how long it takes to loose its "memory" as i havent timed it)
Sorry for the lengthy post, but i thought the more information i post, the easier it would be to get some help.
Any thoughts? Thanks in advance.
