When locking the car and want to check that the boot is locked just hold the fob at arm's length away from the car and you will find that it is locked,if you are too close the boot will unlock when you pull on the MG badge.The boot hatch stays unlocked if my key is not in the tin and unlocks when I'm within 5-10m away if the key is not in the tin, the car itself stays locked
I experimented wrapping my key fob in baking foil yesterday.I used it doubled over and stood next to the car and it wouldn't open.I purchased a couple of RFID key holders on-line (sorry, cant find the exact ones again on-line). In the last couple of weeks, the car can still be locked and unlocked with the key in the RFID pouch. This did not happen in the previous three months of ownership where the RFID pouch worked as expected and blocked the signal from the key.
Do RFID pouches eventually loose their effectiveness (i.e. the material breaks down over time allowing signal to pass through)?
Maybe thats why I cant find the same RFID pouches on line any more!
