We bought our 70 reg Corsa f-e Elite Nav in November and its been fine until this last week. The key fob problem first happened on the 8th and happened again today (11th). Have to use the physical key to unlock the car and then the key fob starts working again. I updated the infotainment firmware and maps just over a week ago, I don't know if that is related.

I also had a problem today where I couldn't move the gear out of park after releasing the brakes. I had to press the power on/off button, intending to power it off and power it on again. It didn't power off it acted as though it was off and just powered up/refreshed the display and showed the ready display. The gear stick then worked.

I've also had problems with the car refusing to lock, claiming the boot is open when it is firmly closed. Opening and slamming the boot shut fixes that.

I'm starting to regret buying the car I just hope the problems don't get any worse. And don't get me started on the app and its totally random ability to connect to the car.

I assume the key fob problems are when moving in and out of the three zones? I don't have that option. I have had no problem locking and unlocking by pressing the appropriate buttons on the fob.

I have a Corsa-e SE NAV.

I am also frustrated by the app not working. It appears to update when I drive the car, but then refuses to update any time after that or connect to switch the heater on or check the battery charging. I rely on my smart meter to tell me when charging is finished!

I've found if you're too quick off the brake pedal, it doesn't enter ready mode.

Annoying when you don't have this problem with an ignition key cars.

I’m having the same issue with the locking system. Purchased the new corsa Feb 2020 and had it in the garage 5 times regarding locking system. Asked for either a replacement (but by the sounds of it it’s happening to most new corsas) or hand it back as this should not be happening to a brand new car. Getting nowhere with Vauxhall so taking it further.
