    Can anyone offer me advice regarding my range rover evoque 2016 key intermittently not working. I can be pressing up to 30 times to unlock my car. It's not the battery as no warning/message in the car set up. It seems to be worse when the car is parked outside my house but has happened now in other locations. I keep my key in a tin so it's not susceptible to interference. I'm really at a loss - I bought the car 2nd hand, drove it 3 months with no issues & now this has started happening everyday. I always manage to finally get it unlocked or locked but it worries me.
    Am I doing something wrong or going crazy?.....
    Keyless entry i dont think has been set up - nothing happens if just have the key & try to open the handle.

    I imagine your fob needs a new battery

    Changing fob battery would be first on list to rule out, unless its one of the ones that charges from the ignition barrel then i would be looking as to has the passive coil moved ,which has been heard off before.

    Hello! Did you solved your problem? I had the same thing when i got nissan x trail (2015). I changed fob battery and got new alarm system (one of these https://www.bestadvisers.co.uk/car-alarms, if i'm not mistaken) so confidently can say that alarm changing helped)

    Got to hope that after, almost, a year, he and his ejoke have resolved their issues. Most likely by using a gallon of petrol and a match :)
