Radio Controlled key won't open the doors
My wife's Laguna I has a power lock problem. It showed up last summer but went away by itself, to re-appear yesterday.
One can't unlock the doors except by using the lock cylinder and then toggling the rocker switch between front seats. I've replaced batteries, tried the spare 2nd key, too. Sometimes the locks work, sometimes not.
Key ring transmitter works since I've monitored it with a ham radio transceiver. The signal is much louder than our Skoda Octavia's key transmitter signal so I'd assume it works well and has enough power.
Laguna's doors won't open, however.
Where is the receiver located? Don't say it lies under the antenna, my car has no damn leaking roof antenna at all.
I'd start troubleshooting at the receiver if I only knew where it is hidden.
Currently in weetu's garage:
Skoda Octavia 2.0 TDI 2007, Laguna 2000 2.0
