I think it was the big lump of me that was blocking the signal...
worked fine from the wheel when reaching into the car from outside, but when seated it was only about 30% reliable

I'll have a play with it. I tried changing the battery, but it made no difference.

I'm not sure how they work, whether it is infrared, wifi, bluetooth, radio etc... If it's infrared, that could be the problem... :lol:

Point your phone camera at the business end of the remote whilst pushing one of the buttons. If it's IR it will be a white light on the phone screen.
