Hello all

Hi, I joined your great group just over a week ago & after what feels like a eternity I have finally taken possession of my new Honda Civic 1.8 I-vtec EX & I'm very pleased with it. I thought now would be a good time to say hi!

One problem though, twice since I picked up the car on Friday it has refused to unlock via the key fob. I figured that the key was cold or something & didn't want to know. I only have one key so does anyone know if this is a fault with my car/key or is this a known problem amongst civics? I can open the car with the key itself but due to the alarm I don't think it's prudent!

Many thanks

Hi & thanks for the welcome unkle creepy. I haven't had a chance to change the battery on the fob yet. It's top of my list of 'things to do to my civic!' I noticed another thread mentioning a similar problem but it was dated 2006 so I wondered if anyone had solved it since then.

Thanks again
