About 2 weeks ago I started having problem with my remote starter.

The wife remote failed at the same time.

We have remote door locks on the house not working.

New batteries no change

At work or anywhere else they work fine???

No known military in the area??

New medical facility across the road but they are close to a year old??

Sometimes if we get withion 2-3 feet they work sometimes they don't.

50 yards at work they work fine??

HELP!!!

Sounds like something is jamming the signals, if you go to a spy shop there are sweepers that can help identify the source of the interference.

It is called EMI (Electro-Magnetic Interference) Maybe someone is messing with you a) on purpose b)accidentally
Jamming device



Keyless remotes contain a short-range radio transmitter, and must be within a certain range, usually 5-20 meters (15-60 ft), of the car to work. When a button is pushed, it sends a coded signal by radio waves to a receiver unit in the car, which locks or unlocks the door. Most RKEs operate at a frequency of 315 MHz for North America-made cars and at 433.92 MHz for European, Japanese and Asian cars. Modern systems implement encryption to prevent car thieves from intercepting and spoofing the signal.

Let's see.................do you owe the IRS or back child support?
I kid you not, that will happen.

We all think it's so nifty having all these electronic conveniences at hand but what some aren't realizing is, it's all centralized. Which means...it's mastered controlled somewhere. Most likely, a satellite.

I read not too long ago, if you're late with a car payment (or have outstanding motor vehicle tickets) they can and will use the 'kill switch' to shut off your newer cars (that were..... so easy to finance.).

And this is only the start. They already do it with your cell phones. If you're late with your payment, there is no more grace period. It's [[bam]] turned off then you have to pay a hefty re-activation fee.

Not saying that this is what's happening in your case but hell, at least you're getting a sneak preview.

Both work fine once were a couple of hundred yards away. Been about 2 weeks. Would WI-FI or a security system screw things up??

Nothing with the IRs or anybody . It's at home only

some security systems do in fact use wireless radios to communicate with each devices. IF it were malfunctionning, it could happen

same goes for Wi-Fi and cordless phones. even garage door openers

experiment around by turning off some of those devices and testing your remote keyless system

It could also be a electrical transformer on your street that is acting up. ask your neighbors if THEY have similar difficulties

I have found recently that my cordless phone interferes with everything from my wifi router to my 3g cell phone, try unplugging or turning off some of the wireless things in your home and see if it works better. Good luck!

The operating frequency (418Mhz or 433.92Mhz) is close to those used by MoD communication in the UK, radio amateurs and other common applications.

have you bought anything recently that works in this band wave ? Is the car battery okay, sometime this causes a problem to, any neighbors got a new transponder for a garage door ? new portable phone in the house?, try turning off individual wireless devices one at a time to see if this cures the problem.

The store you mention across the road, ask them if they have replaced their tills recently or see if they use those handheld terminals for credit cards, or ordering systems in the back, they work on the same frequencies as car transponders rendering them u/o

if you do have further problems you will need to pick up a spectrum analyzer and see what signals are in the air,

802.11n wireless routers could be your source of issues. They take up the entire bandwidth that they operate in. Did you, or a neighbor recently get a new wifi router?

I think this is a problem that is starting to spread, just like the strange sounds;

Who would like to set up a Googleearth page with pins and tags???

Now something that is like a nuclear bomb (with all the nasty radiation), with EMP capabilities?? I wonder what that could be? (In a sarcastic voice.)

I know. (Not Fukishima.)
