Well this is a new one on me. My GTR has been sat in the garage on trickle charge since early December I think. I've started her up and kept her running for 20-30 minutes every few weeks (last time was about 3 weeks ago).

Anyway, today I went out to do the same and the fob didn't work. OK I thought, probably battery. Changed battery, still nothing when I press the unlock (or boot release) button. 

I've got into the car using the physical key and the car will start provided I put the fob into it's receptacle in the dash. But even having run the car for 30 minutes, the fob still wouldn't then lock the car or do anything.

It seems to me as if somehow the car is not 'hearing' the signal from the fob. Anyone come across this or have any ideas?

Thanks.

Fob battery? I've now learnt my lesson and always keep a spare in my home...

P.s. Do you not have a second fob?

I've also read you can insert it in the fob holder around 10 times to get the car to register with it. Apparently the indicated will flash once its done.

Did you read my post John? :hrhr:  Said in it that I replaced with a new battery pal. Re the second fob, yeah, I did try that fob too and the same result sadly.

I thought you meant you'd changed the car battery!

:hrhr: Ah, I see. Nothing so dramatic thankfully. Will be popping out to try Robin's suggestion shortly. Will report back in case others get a similar issue at any point.

Any joy Neil? Massive long shot, but one of our other cars (Passat) says in the user manual not to press the key fob button too many times when the car is out of range as the fob and car can get out of sync. If this happens, there's a procedure to follow to resync the fob and car. Might be worth a 5 min Google search to see if the GTR has something similar (not sure if this is the same as Blobbishs' suggestion)? Doesn't explain the second fob not working though... :(

No, no joy yet. Blobbish had a coupe of good suggestions but neither have worked sadly (one of those included trying to re-programme the fob by inserting into the recpticle in the dash a few times). I'm taking her up to Litchfield a week tomorrow and they are going to sort it but they are also going to ensure that the original Tracker on the car is not causing an issue (which whilst I'm pretty sure is not linked - I have recently let my subscription expire).

Bit of a long shot. I have heard of interference from other sources causing this. 
have you tried the remotes with the car in another location?

No I haven't Paul but there's nothing different in the close that I'm aware of. I might try this quickly on Friday morning before I head up to Litchfield just in case though :thumbs:

Tried this today Paul and also took the car for a longer drive with the fob in the recepticle and no joy from doing either/both. On the bright side, oh my was it good to get in the GTR and go for a drive for the first time this year. It just feels special every time but moreso for the time gap.

Well over to Litchfield on Friday to sort it out then (and another excuse to drive).
