Is anybody else having problems with their remote central locking.

On our car, an 11 month old Ceed 3 diesel auto, this sometimes works and sometimes it doesn't.

The batteries in the key fobs seem to be okay but this irritating problem keeps recurring.

Are we doing something wrong or is it a fault.

Any help would be much appreciated.

There was a "Known issue" relating to this, but it was only occuring during freezing weather. - KIA will fix under warranty. I covered this in my first thread under "Newbie - SR7 information".


Details there as to who to phone and ask for at KIA Head Office. They will know if it applies to your car by your registration number.



Either way, it will be covered by warranty.

There
have been known problems with the ""Key in""� switch on the ignition barrel which
can cause the remote locking problems. If it sticks (thinks the keys in when
its not) the remotes will not work. Another way to spot the fault is with the side
light on ,turn ign off, key out, when you open the door the side lights
should go out (battery save mode) if they don't the switch is sticking
