    Posted: 10áDecá2010 at 11:40am
My wife returned to the car yesterday to find that none of the door buttons worked so she was locked out. She called me and I asked if she had tried the buttons on the key itself. They did work so she was able to get in and start the engine in the usual way. Since then, everything is back to normal. However, it is a bit worrying. I have also noticed that, sometimes, as i get into the driver's seat, there is a bleep and the yellow triangle on the instrument panel lights up momentarily. I've also mentioned elsewhere that the wipers sometimes give a single wipe in bone dry conditions and that the temperature gauge is always 3 deg C too high.

yellow triangle is normal its just the car running its checks
 
the single wipe so ive been told is letting you know you have the wipers set to auto
 
are you sure your wife had the keys in range they need to be within about 12 inches of the handle you are trying also phones ect close to the keys can interfere with the signal

Craig, the bleep and the flash of the triangle are unusual because this is even before turning on the ignition. Yes, my wife definitely had the keys in her handbag as usual and she did go to each of the doors with her handbag held close to the door. Phone interference is possible but she did take the keys out of her bag and the buttons still did not respond.
Interesting to hear that the occasional wipe is deliberate. I am anyway keeping the wipers in the off position while there is any risk of frost.

It's happening again! After a long period with no trouble, I got out of the car a few days ago and found it would not lock with the driver's door button not the boot nor the passenger door. No warning bleeps, just nothing. I locked it with the key fob and then the door buttons worked again.
Sounds like a trip to the dealership may be called for but the usual answer is that they can only find a fault while it exists. What a pain!

That's not good...they are always the worst problems to diagnose. It might be the pads themselves rather than deeper problem.
 
I am sure they are resistive pads...daft question, you weren't wearing gloves was ya lol.
 
Seriously though, if it's both sides then can they not just replace the pads - they are not coded as they are jsut a trigger..

ask the dealer if changing the door handles or pads as hamish said would help

The pads have an actual button behind them rather than using 'touch'.

SO there must be a micro switch behind there then..I'd be asking for new switch/pads now.

I doubt that it would be the pads because it affected all at the same time. More likely that it's related to the IK receiver module. At least the fob works. 
In any case, it's got to be sorted by the dealer.
They are certainly microswitch pads so wearing gloves would make no difference.

Had this on mine once, I managed to get into the car by tapping the key itself, then the door buttons worked again, got into the car to find the car wouldn't unlock the steering column, bashed the key again gently and all ok... 

I suspect that its either the battery not making contact properly or the internal key electronics are suspect, either way mention it to the dealer, but unless they've had the fault previous, they return the car stating no fault found.. 

Also FYI, I've had this feature on my last Merc, admittantly it was better implemented, but intermittantly the car would refuse to acknowledge I was trying to get in, gentle bash of the key and all was ok again..

I remember reading a while back of interference to remote devices caused by mobile transmitters, not the phones.
 
In a particular supermarket car park folk were having trouble and it was traced to a nearby mast.  Are your problems in a particular location?
 
Just a thought.

It has only happened at home so far but it is a thought that I always have my mobile phone in my pocket and there is always the possibility of interference from that. Co-incidentally, last night when I was walking towards the car in a car park, I saw the four flashers operate and heard the doors open when I was about 10ft away from the car. I just thought the key fob button might have been pressed by something else in my pocket but again, it could have been mobile phone interference. If so, that will be even more difficult to resolve.
There are no mobile phone masts near either location.

How many keyfob things do you get. If you have a spare you need to try the spare next time it fails, If the spare also fails to work then the problem is on the car.

i was just about to say that noki beat me eh.
i know certainly my key wont work in the same pocket as my iphone... was told this by our members so tested it.. and it cuts the signal range. had to basically put my pocket at the handle to work
so keep key in different pocket now.
 
i also was leaving work one night with key in pocket (not in same pocket as phone but a small pocket made for keys or phone in my chef trousers, and phone was in the pocket that this pocket is attached to) and my interior lights came on and car was unlocked... not sure if anything got pressed(and i didnt see my hazards flash but i was talking to my mate, who noticed the interior lights coming on... not me lol)

We have two key fobs and both my wife and I have had the problem of the door handle buttons not responding. Both key fob buttonss work correctly. It is only the IK function that seems to occasionally be unresponsive. On those occasions, all three door buttons are dead.
It would be too much of a coincidence that the IK side (?) of both key fobs would have the same problem so I remain convinced that it is the IK receiver that is either intermittent or is suffering interference. Even then, the interference idea seems unlikely because we always both carry our phones with us and separate from the key fobs.

For clarification the yellow triangle is warning you that it can't sense the key properly. It may just be a case of the battery going flat (within the fob).

This happened in my wife's micra C+C, changed the battery and all was fine.

There has been an interesting development - last night, I had a physiotherapy session and, as he was leaving, the physio said, "I hope I can get into my car this time because, on the last couple of visits to your house, the car key remote has refused to work and I had to use the key."
I hadn't even mentioned the problem I'd had with the QQ. He went on to say that his remote was still working correctly in other locations so he thought there must be some interference here.
Well, as an electronics/radio engineer, I have to admit that is something I had already considered but I have no idea what could be the source of the interference. There are no mobile phone masts nearby and it would have to be a fairly strong signal to disrupt the operation of a key locking system. Another possibility is radiation from the cable TV system.
This is going to be a toughy to sort out! Unfortunately, I don't have any test equipment for the 2.4GHz band so I may have to call in the radio interference specialists.

Remarkably similar but we don't have any commercial establishments in our neighbourhood. However, there are quite a lot of devices that work in the 2.4GHz band. Bluetooth hifi systems, cordless computer peripherals, etc., but they they are so low power that they shouldn't radiate more than 3-4m at the most. Our cable tv entry to the house runs under our driveway so that is high on my list of suspects.
