Anyone else got a Mk3 Focus with keyless entry ? Do you too find it a bit 'hit and miss' ?

Numerous times I have gone to the car, opened the boot then closed the boot (keyless entry). Then gone to drivers door and nothing happens, car doesn't unlock in fact it sounds if it is trying to lock the car. End up getting frustrated and just using the fob to press the car unlock button. Went to petrol station today, filled up locked car with a 'handswipe' on drivers handle - all ok. Went in, paid, came out, grabbed drivers door handle and NOTHING !! Ended up using key fob again - complete and utter waste of money IMHO. Rant over.........................

Hi, if its not working correctly so take it back to the dealership then, it serves no purpose to rant here, mine works fine.

Also have 2010 Ti with Keyless system and it works well. Just keep the key in my pocket and has worked 100% (only had car for 4 weeks). Get a little annoyed when I reach my front door and have to get key ring out of pocket.

Hi, lets not go there ok, you seem to have a less than perfect car, however, as I said, you are better off taking your frustration out at the dealership that supplied your car instead of me.

I do believe this is a discussion site ? I also would have asked the same question on here if I had the same problem - seems to me your a little tense ? If you have a problem with someone's post then don't reply just chill out. Discussion sites = Discuss ;-) "Simples" !!!!

Hi, yes a discussion forum, the question was posed, "Anyone else got a Mk3 Focus with keyless entry ? Do you too find it a bit 'hit and miss'" I gave a straight forward answer, so what's the problem?

The guy asked a simple question and you seem to jump on him regarding not taking it to dealer - I pick mine up Friday and if I have an issue I would also ask it on here ? Can't see what the issue is - was the way you challenged him regarding taking it to the dealer - very abrupt / sharp that's all.

Hi, well if that was the truth then I'd apologise, however the op used the words rant, frustrated and used capitals. Thus I suggested this should be better aimed at the dealership. However, did your comment 'Had to laugh at his reply to you !' add anything to this discussion about the keyless system?

Help my engine has blown up can anyone other than my dealer help me please, you have a problem with a new car take it back as far as I know that's what most normal people would do that's the best thong about buying new or you may aswell got a cheap car. then report back to us and tell us how they got on and what to look for or solutions, not avoiding the dealer like he has the plauge and bitching about it on here, to borrow what wick said "SIMPLES" THe term 'some people are never happy unless there complaining' sping to mind anyone???
