Default 207 transponder ariel (only can unlock doors when extremely close to the car)

I can only use the transponder key fob very close to the car and i would like to know where the ariel for the transponder system is in the car as i think it may have probably wiggled loose cause me to have to use the physical key to open the door all the time now.

Transponder is the immobiliser system the remote locking is a separate part of the system and is an RF signal i believe the reciever is in the comm unit on steering column

Have you tried a new battery in key.

Default Keyfob only works next to the steering wheel

Hi meowcatluke,

My son has exactly the same problem with both of his keyfobs. One didn't work when he got the car last year, but that was the spare so he lived with it. Last week however, his working keyfob stopped working. It had started to work on a shorter and shorter distance until it packed in.

I bought a couple of spare batteries and changed them in both remotes, and used the reset procedure to re-programme them. They now both work, but only if pushed against the drivers window.

The symptoms manifested themselves as the battery wearing down, but why is it now not working??

Yesterday we tried a BSI reset which didn't fix the problem.

In addition, Chris (my son) said that he has had strange problems where the lights will come on for no reason. He doesn't have automatic lighting in his car! Sometimes when he turns off his lights they don't turn off. Not sure if this is still happening since the BSI reset, he is keeping his eye on it.

If anyone has any ideas on how to fix this, please let us know. I am not sure what Peugeot will do, other than start replacing parts just in case, so it could get quite expensive to fix......

Any ideas are welcome.

Thanks
Kev J.

I know a few other people how have this issue with the signal strength being weak even in close proximity. Peugeot electronics are unusually peculiar, last night i had to disconnect all the seatbelt electronics so the "pinging" noise would stop when setting off in the car even when the seatbelt was plugged in!

Unplugging them both from under the passenger seat and drivers seat and the rear 3/4 length seat fixed the problem. Considering Peugeot dealers like to extort money out of their customers nobody i know have has dealt with their transponder issue. I have replaced the battery in the keyfob aswell with no change in result.

are you sure the batteries you have fitted are good because if they have been stored in the cold it will kill lithium batteries, the keys could be faulty or the comms unit (that receives the signal) could be faulty

I fitted a new battery to my Keyfob (sealed ) it was worse so purchased a few duracell ones problem solved there are a few fake cheap batteries from China turning up on certain sites Including Laptop batteries the random light stuff could well be a comms problem though but the right person to sort that problem is the person I have just Quoted Trustme can sort comms units out

I had a couple of batteries in the drawer that I tried with no luck, so bought an Energiser battery from Halfords. This was no different.

Went through a BSI reset, and still the same. I can't confirm the reduction in distance was due to a failing battery, as that has long since gone to Sainsburys re-cycle bin. It could therefore be the comm2000. Is there any way to test that this is the problem before spending big money on getting it replaced?
