PostPosted: Sun Dec 09, 2018 7:06 am    Post subject: Remote Locking Issue Reply with quote

My Boxster lives outside and as I'm working away a lot at the moment I'm only getting into it every couple of weeks. However I've noted that the key will not activate the central locking the first time I try. Also the car has a half cover on it partly held in place by the doors and boot lid so it is a race to unlock it pop the boot to release the cover to open the door enough to the get the key in the ignition before the alarm triggers.

As soon as I've done it once the key then operates the locking fine as if nothing was ever wrong. Also all the electrics come on fine and the engine cranks over well on first start so doesn't seem battery related.

Any ideas? Question

That’s normal. Unlock and lock with the key will wake it. Just lift the handle works on 9x7 cars.

It’s a power-saving feature. Activates after about a week.

Thanks. Have found them for sale at breakers but more important things on the car to spend the £65 on. BI do have the service book and other records, oh and the stereo handbook but have swapped out this already.

BTW, who said copyright...?

I read the manual but unless it is written elsewhere I couldn't find anything in the remote locking/alarm section that says it goes into a 'sleep' mode after a period of time.

Either way, a good excuse to keep taking it for a spin. Very Happy
