Just that really, Where's the remote receiver on a 2008 Carens?

I have 1 fob and all works OK except unlocking takes about 20-30 presses 1st thing in the morning. If the car is warm or recently locked, it'll unlock quicker, but the longer it's left, the longer it takes to unlock on the fob. The button and battery are all OK etc, as both other buttons work fine.

FYI - port 6 is blank on my car, for anyone recommending I try reprogramming. I would otherwise, as sounds easy enough.
Any recommendations on where to get a decent keyfob & key would be good also, (other than the dealer)?

Change the battery anyway. My experience is that as teh battery weakens some functions become temperamental or stop entirely. For a few pounds you could save yourself a lot of faff.

The terminals in the key are rubbish and gradually move away from the battery causing bad contact and the fob won't always work, bend them in a bit and I bet that will solve your problem.
