Remote fob problem.

Hi there i have a C230 saloon Kompressor, N plate. whenever i use the remote have to stand right beside the driver door for it to work. i have changed the batteries upto 2 weeks ago but the light in the fob is very weak. Also sometimes when i lock the car doors the alarm beeps and the indicators flash, but then for the next few days the remote will work the doors and the green light on the door and rearview works but no beep or indicator flash. PLease help as this is becoming really irritating.

Thanks

Alarm problem!!!

Thanks for the article i checked out the website and this new gizmo seems cool. I have also realised that the alarm on the car does not arm, though the doors lock by remote. The alarm works on occassion, is there advice on how to tackle this problem?

Thanks

You might be in what is called valet mode. This feature is set when you take your car to a hotel or where you know you don't want the alarm to set accidentally. There are a number of ways to get it in and out of this mode, check out your manual and you should be able to turn it back on pretty easily.
