Re: Keyless Remote Problems

When you use the key to unlock the doors and not the remote the car thinks it is being stolen. The car doesn't pick up the chip in the key until you put it into the ignition switch and turn it on. Unlike new vehicles, yours does not have any antennas to tell the car where the key is. The only way to keep this from happening when using the key to unlock is to manually lock each door. Using the lock switch will set it off.
For the second question, it is very possible it could be the meter, if the remote works everywhere else. I have herd several stories where someone will drive by a store with automatic doors and every time the doors open their doors will lock. There are so many different radio waves in the air and if you find a frequency close to your vehicle you can get some interference. The wonderful wireless world.
