Angry Remote Control Range?

Hello all,

Just wanted to see what everybody is getting for their remote range? I can't seem to lock/unlock my doors more than 40 feet away from the car and this is an empty space and a straight shot with no obstacles.

Is this normal? Because I have had cars with much better range than that.

Thanks!

it's pretty cruddy. I went as far as looking up the FCC paperwork to find the circuit board design and where the antenna is... I stopped short of actually opening it and soldering on an extension LOL.

Yep very short. I got a viper remote starter installed, so I use the starter remote that it has a about half of kilometer range.

After a software update from the dealer, the range has easily tripled in distance.

Can you elaborate on this.. What Software update? and did it really help with the distance.. (Maybe you still have the receipt with the work done so we can get it done as well)..

Thanx!!
