I have a Valet 712T keyless entry system installed in my 2000 Toyota MR2. The issue that I am experiencing is this:

If I exit the vehicle and wait for both doors to close before locking the car with the remote fob, the fob will unlock the doors as designed. However, if I lock the doors with the fob BEFORE both doors are closed, the fob will not unlock the doors. The dome light will flash, the headlights and side indicators will blink, but the doors will not unlock.

Has anyone else experienced a similar issue and found a solution for it? I thank you for any help you may be able to provide.


EDIT: A little more poking has found that it is taking the cue that the door is closed from the dome light switch in the door jamb. If I open the door, lock it while open, manually press the dome light switch in the door jamb, and then attempt to unlock the door with the fob, nothing happens. I have to unlock the door with the key to regain full fob functionality.
