C5 (1999) Remote FOB Playing Up

Postby baadvet99 » Mon Oct 22, 2012 9:09 pm

Hey guys,
Having a bit of an issue with my remotes. I've got 2 factory remotes for the C5 1999 model. Both with new batteries.
They seem to be both losing memory.
What happens is that I programme them through the FOB Training, pressing the lock/unlock etc. Both remotes work ok for a while then stop working.
Ive tried reprogramming it a fews times. Sometimes they might work ok for about an hour, sometimes a few days tops, both end up not working (at different times).
Anyone else had the same issue? Is it time for a new remote?
Cheers

Sounds like remote is rooted...OR the other end of it in the car isn't holding battery voltage?
