Central locking oddity

I've been reading through some of the central locking posts, but mine seems to be having a different issue (2000 w reg). most the time it works without fault, and the central module shows everything all the time. However sometimes it just plain refuses to lock/unlock! I replaced the batteries in the remote, but this still happens. Sometimes it works form 30ft+ away, but when it refuses to unlock, I have to open the passenger door and do it form mm's away to get it to work. (This happens for locking and unlocking the car, even after a 30 min journey)

Any ideas as to what to look for?

Hi Mat-d-Rat

I wish i had a definitive answer for you but i don't know i started a thread just the other day to help but in your case iam not that sure its going to?? simply adjusting the ir key sensitivity from the unit in the car at the rear door roof light in the car might just help??? link below

2002 Espace Mk III IR Cobra Alarm Settings

I did also disconnect my battery for about 30 minutes as i thought it might help reset things but if your going to do this make sure you have the Radio code i had no problems with regards to that as i do not have a Radio code on my 2002 Espace but some models do i believe and some don't,

I hope this helps all the best Donald
