When I say I checkeded, I stopped at the lift 6m away and hit close again. The indicators flashed. Unfortunately the insurance company are being "difficult" with my claim after initially indicating it would be OK. I am claiming on my house insurance for goods stolen when away from home.

Not a mystery. Wireless doorbells use the same frequency, as do many other wireless devices. A much bigger problem though is that caused by higher powered communications transmitters operating on nearby frequencies. The selectivity of the receiver in the car is too poor to filter out any splatter.

I have been locked out of my car before, each time parked under a power cable.

Now you say that I remember the last car audio show I went too I couldn't lock the car, I had to get in the passenger side and press the lock button on the door panel, Not sure if I had to lock the passenger door manually then but had to use the key to get back in and set the alarm off
When I got home it all worked fine again, Must have been something to do with the frequencies from the sound-off cars.

I'm trying to work out how that could happen, as power cables only operate at a very low frequency (50Hz). It could be due to a phenomenon known as "corona discharge". This is caused by an electrical discharge of high voltage cables through damp atmosphere and can sometimes generate audible noise. You can also detect this through the radio as a sizzling sound. The radiation produced is wide-band (similar to a spark discharge) and could be sufficient to jam the receiver.

I'm led to believe that a new wave of thieves are using scanners to pick up the frequency your transmitter uses. They have to be near you and scanning when you lock the car.

I know that used to be done years ago but I thought newer cars use rolling codes hence why thiefs need the keys to steal a modern car.

I understand what you are saying. All I know is that 3 times on two different 300c's I have been locked out and each time the cars were parked below power cables. Its never happened when not parked under a power line, thats why I mentioned it

More than a coincidence, I would say.
