The keyless remote for my 2003 Forester XS is acting up again: it only unlocks the doors after trying the remote 10-12 times, but usually locks them in the first or second try. I've replaced the remote last year and it seemed to help, but it started becoming sporadic again. I've reprogrammed the remote carefully after changing the battery but still it's not working correctly. Is there another possible source of the problem?

Also the rear gate won't unlock & open with all doors unlocked, I've lubed the handle & latch, and followed the tips on manually lifting the latch from the access hole a dozen times. Beginning to think my car doesn't want me in it.

Any advice is appreciated before I have to trek up to the dealer and pay big money for a simple problem.
