    When I open or lock the car at the moment I get the red and green flashing lights on the rear view mirror and drivers door, flashing together about 15 times!! I am used to the green to open red to lock, but together???

    What does it mean?

    Your fob probably needs a new battery.

    As per the handbook, it means the fob battery is low.

    You're very welcome.

    Made me wonder, the first time it happened on my SL!

    Not in my manual, says about green for open, red to close and how to change batteries and re-sync, but no info on dual flashing......that's why I asked :)
