Astra J Keyfob range
#1
hi guys

My keyfob and spare normal key has very short range to unlock/lock vehicle. i must be within 2m from car to work.

Already replaced both battery's

is there anything that i can try in order to fix this issue?

thanks

There is nothing in terms of an aerial there could be other interference causing the issue.

I know on the Meriva there was an aerial used to extend the range but on the Astra they used a different set of component's where by you can't.

Could be a blessing in disguise, a couple of times I found the car unlocked in the morning (know I locked it previous night), when I accidentally pressed the key in my pocket in the house, once with front windows half rolled down.

I now put the key in safe place in house when I get home.
