    Exclamation Central locking advice

    This is a weird one, Just lately i've been having a problem with my central locking, in that it will work anywhere except outside my house, just wondered if anyone else has ever had a similar problem and could help, cos it's driving me and the neighbours mad when I have to use the key and set the alarm off especially at six oclock in the morning.

    Here hoping!!!!!

    I have heared of this. Im sure its called rf lock out. Basicaly its where there is a simlar but much stronger signal blocking yours. This happens alot in london. Do you live near any phone masts/ large transmitters?

    There's a phone mast about 1/4 mile up the road, is there anything I can do about it if it is the mast?
