Remote Locking/Unlocking of the doors problem
I wondering if I'm the only one having problems with locking/unlocking my Compass with the remote, just sometimes ?
I explain, I'm in the truck, driving it. I park the truck to get out. I put it in "Park", turn off the truck, remove the key, open the door, get out of the truck, close the door et then I try to lock the doors using my remote key but nothing happens. I can try 1, 2, 3 or 10 times to lock/unlock, nothing happens at all.
This is not at all time, it happens only now and then. Can't figure out why. I also tried my other key (thought maybe I had a bad one) and it also doesn't work when this happens. To get rid of the problem and be able to use my remote again, I have to get in the truck, turn it on, turn it off and get out again. Usually, at this point, everything returns back to normal and I'm able to lock/unlock it as much as I want.
Now, until tonight, it was only once in a while, tonight, it happened 3 times. I thought at first that it was happening because I was shutting down the headlamps after opening my door, so I tried to always turn off the headlamps before getting or even keeping them turned off and it also happened but it happened again 2 more times. I'm now about 50% of the time not able to correctly usr my remote key to lock the truck and activate the security system (I had this option factory installed, it comes with the thing in the trunk to hide your stuff).
