    hi, been asked to give some more details on my fix, got fed up with having to use fob at back window as had blue aerial wire disconnected so fitted, if I can remember correctly a 2ch remote relay from fleebay same as this one but with two remotes, one each me and the wife
    DC 12V Remote Control ON OFF Switch Power Wireless Relay Control all 12VOLT APPs | eBay
    I wired this in at the receiver, cutting the orange wire and running that through the relay and taking the power supply from the live and ground feeding the receiver, you now have to press the new remote to lock-arm the relay then use your car fob as normal. on leaving car lock as normal then disarm the new relay
    The becm should no longer wake up and you can still use you key fob from a distance (ok two key fobs from a distance :D ) hope that makes sense.
    if you do this mod go for a 315mhz switch as it is then on a different frequency then the RF receiver.

    Just tried the link, that seller is no longer listing that item, any ideas where I might find one elsewhere?

    Just type in 12v remote jog switch on ebay, I found the jog switch better as you cannot leave it switched on as ,if I remember correctly , Brian's missus did.;):D

    Hi Brian, Sorry for the late reply but I don't seem to have as much time lately. The jog switches are half the price as well ;):D
