kobalt Posted March 9, 2005 Report Share Posted March 9, 2005 Forgive me but this is a bit of a multi-purpose thread since I was unable to start a seperate poll :huh: So here are my questions: 1. What is your key fob range? 2. Where is the auto door lock/unlock receiver antenna located? Here is a bit of background info regarding my questions: I had a ramote start unit installed last week and configured to use my standard key fob. This was due to the fact that the remote start key fob would not remote-open my doors or trunk and I found that using/carrying 2 different key fobs was unacceptable. It worked out quite well , starting the car by pressing the "lock" button thrice. The remote has an acceptable range of about 75 feet with no obstacles in the way, but when parked in a lot of cars or behind a concrete barrier, I find it necessary to stand no more than ~20 feet away to successfully unlock/lock/start the car. I replaced the battery in my fob but the range has not improved so perhaps the receiver antenna (or the location of) is the culprit. Once I find the antenna I will attempt to extend the key fob range by either replacing it with a larger unit or perhaps wiring the receiver to the radio antenna. I will of course report my findings here Thanx to those who read my post. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
