Having trouble with my Phillips remote locking,

Central locking works manually,

Car battery and fob batteries are new,

If I manually lock car, disconnect battery and reconnect the fobs will unlock the car but won't lock it again?

Any help would be much appreciated

Hi Ciaran,

this sounds like a bit of a pain.

I've got to ask initially what you mean by 'Phillips' remote locking?

Is this the standard system that came with the car; and have you replaced the car battery recently..?


It might be worth reading into this-

Hi there,

Thank you for replying,

Its the fob system with Philips marked on the fob, apparently this was standard with the phase 1 145.

The battery was flat, so had to recharge it and since the remote central locking problems have started.

Kind regards

Ah-

sorry; I didn't appreciate the phase 1 keys fobs were actually badged as 'Phillips', although I now understand (since initially reading your thread) that in fact the alarm system is universally accepted to be a Phillips system..

Yes; what you describe is a classic issue- (personally, at the moment, I mark on my year planner the date that I last ran the car, and keep an eye on it; so that the battery doesn't go down the toilet. 11th April at the moment)

I think it might be worth reading that thread that I linked you- it's a significant 'area of research' it would seem- I can't quote you some key 'one sentence solution'; I'm afraid; you'll have to wade through it; and see if you can make sense of it...

if you can't; please ask

cool-

apologies that I can't sew it up in one reply; I haven't been through it myself (yet) and I'd have to read it all peronally to be able to advise you.

We've had some trully excellent, well documented material, from the likes of Giallo and Jeremy G; you just need to be able to read it all!
