: Door Lock Question, UK/Euro Version

Just setting up my new STS, and can't seem to get the keyless entry working correctly?

Remember this is a UK Right Hand Drive Vehicle.

If I walk up to the passenger door with fob, door unlocks with a pull on the handle...(LEFT door if sat in car)

If I walk up to the drivers door and pull the handle led just flashes, and I have to unlock by using the fob (RIGHT door if sat in car)

Am I missing something here, or is the automatic entry only available on the LEFT door as this is the driver side in the USA?

The car has had a new battery before I bought it, so wondering if something needs to be reset?

Regards,

John

Both front doors unlock with pull on the handle. Looks like you have the dreaded handle antenna not working problem, a very common issue with these cars.
Do a search about this in this forum and you will be enlightened.
