Unlock button issues...

Post by hugejp » 04 Nov 2017 23:01

Lately I have been struggling to open/unlock my 4.8

The button on the key seems to be very lazy.

She locks first time everytime, but unlocking is irratic at best.

I replaced the battery & had the locksmith check the contacts & all look fine.

I have also notced that the button works better if I am further away from the vehicle, close up like in my garage is more frustrating.

Has anybody else had this issue & how was it resolved??

On my wifes Sportage it locks itself immediately after pressing the unlock button. I gave the moving bits and pieces a good Q20 spray to see if it was just something sticking and restricting the action of unlocking causing it to relock. It helped for about a month, and is slowly starting to do the same again. I'll have to pull the door panel off and give everything a good clean, and hopefully that will sort it out. The same may be happening with yours
