Hi,

Do any of you know what's going on and how to fix the following problem?
My 2003 CV8 Monaro remote keys sometimes unlock and sometimes do not unlock the doors. Now both spare and usual keys do not start engine. The engine ignites, tries to idle then conks out. Can you help?
Do you
have the same problem?
Yes
No

Unfortunately we don't have this vehicle in the USA so I don't have a manual on it but it sounds like you are having a security issue. The start then stall is indicative of a key security issue. Then the not unlocking could be the same issue or just a weak battery in the key. I would suggest starting with a new key and check for codes. If you have a code that will point us in the correct direction.

Sorry I don't have more detail info for your vehicle but this issue is pretty common along a lot of vehicle lines.
