- Try and figure out this one.
A work mate had the same issue with his Golf. Turned out to be a blown fuse for the central locking. He was changing interior bulbs and they shared the fuse with the central locking system. Best of luck!

Sounds like it’s being an awkward little prick. Get rid.
No new car for me until next summer unfortunately.
It had crossed my mind that some sort of jammer had been placed locally but as my wife’s is fine I don’t know how likely that it’s. Although my wife car is 5 years newer so the technology might have changed.Posted 4 years ago
Starting last week my car won’t remotely lock or unlock at home on the drive, but when it isn’t at home it is fine. At first I thought it was the battery but it isn’t temperamental, it never worked at home and always works elsewhere. I hasn’t changed the battery because of this. My wife car which is also on the drive is fine.
What could this be?Posted 4 years agotonydMember
Any of your neighbours recently changed broadband provider and got a new wireless hub? Or some other new toy that works over wireless? As above, most likely interference from something and since it only started last week it’s unlikely to be something like a sub station.Posted 4 years agoRichMember
The one time my Toyota Verso did this was in the middle of Manchester city centre. It wouldn’t start the engine because the immobiliser was still armed.
The guy who came out to try and fix it said he has it all the time and he thinks it is something to do with the cctv cameras.
I was slightly sceptical, but he towed me about 200 metres away and the car started fine.
So yes, something to do with interference.Posted 4 years agoElmoMember
Any of your neighbours got a new job, a new works van parked close by?Posted 4 years ago
A guy i used to work with had trouble opening his Mondeo when the-next-but-one neighbour parked his van on his own drive. A little further up the road was fine. On a couple of occasions he had to ask him to move so he could open it!
All to do with the equipment he was carrying they thought.
Its not a combine its an 07 Ford Focus.
I have walked around the car panning the button.
The only thing that has changed locally that I know about is the people opposite opposite have had their drive done and are parking their Focus of the same sort of age on the road. Their car isn’t opening when I get to open mine.
Spare keys aren’t kept at ours so can’t be the wife.
No CCTV in the area, I live in the suberbs of north Birmingham, no need for CCTV around here.
No Indian burial ground, the local park was used as a POW camp during WW1 tho.
I can’t imagine covering the car in tin foil will help much.
I will threaten it with a hammer and if that doesn’t work I will replace the battery in the key.Posted 4 years ago
