I thought if the fob batterys were low, it would not receive the signal, it does so standing right next to the car, and the indicators flash indicating it received the proper number of presses.
1. Try turning off/inactivate the SmartTop for 10-15 minutes and reactivate., then try the remote key.
2. If the above doesn't work, try to remove the +12V power to the SmartTop (easy to do if you used the Add-a-circuit method or OEM fuseholder to tap power); wait 10 minutes, reconnect the +12v power, make sure the SmartTop module is active, try with remote key.
3. If nos. 1 and 2 don't work, I'd recommend emailing Stefan at mods4cars.
