I have replaced the SCS module three times. This am dead again! batteries in remote ok, coached hooked in my driveway to 30 amp service.
Service mgr at SCS said " these units dont like low voltage" Something in this 05 Vestra must be causing this module to go bad. Any help out there?

My keyless entry would stop working for sometimes a week, than would start working again. It did this at least a half dozen times, now that I'm out of warranty it has quit for good. They replaced the keypad,by the door, when we were at the factory getting service in July. It only worked about two weeks.

We too have had occasions when our keypad wasn't working properly. We finally figured out that the keypad works off the 'engine' batteries and when the engine batteries are low, the keypad won't work right. No matter whether we are plugged in or not, only the house batteries are being charged and full house batteries makes no difference. When the 'engine' batteries are fully charged, the keypad works as it's suppose to.

Hope this helps.

Happy New Year everyone!

GRRRR.....

Welcome me back to the rv world.....my first issue with a one day old coach.
Guess I'll do some reading on troubleshooting the SCS as neither of the two remotes or the keyless entry panel will "operate" the door lock now.

Handhelds work the compartments fine,(forgot to check the panel operation of the compartments as it's raining...) and the remotes and the keyboard both "cycle" the running lights,but will not operate the door locking mechanism...

Oh well....be back later,going to read some and try and find a solution.

On my 2005 Vectra remotes I find that every once in a while they quite working. So I tap them in the palm of my hand or take out the battery and set them right back in and they work again. I think the battery contacts are weak points in the remotes

Ken,my issue was that I can see the clearance lights blinking as I either hit one of the key fobs OR enter the code in the keypad,but that's all that happens...

Keyfob works remote compartment locks just fine..

Update: SCS is sending me (for the third time)another main receiver module (the one in the front compartment with all chassis breakers). Service manager at SCS is convinced the problem is winne, either a voltage or a ground problem.. SCS will talk with Winn"s engineers to
try and find a long term solution.

Another funny.....(ya have to laugh to not cry!!)

On the way home from picking up the coach yesterday I was discussing this issue with my Journey owning friend,who had a $5 safety valve to the SCS not working....A magnetic metal box with a key in it...That's GREAT,all those dollars I spent and I need a hide-a-key?

rebelsbeach, No. in my case nothing worked compartments didnt work, lights didnt flash. I beleive in your case, you need to follow to the letter the programing part of your SCS manuel, cause if compartment locking is working and lights flash, the remotes arent programed properly to the receiver module.
