    Coupe central locking/key problem

    My central locking stopped working out of the blue the other day, which is obviously very annoing as now the alrm goes off when I open the door until I turn the key in the ignition!

    I assumed it would be a new battery so took the key tto Halfords to get one sorted, but changed the battery and this did notghing. The lad at Halfords seemed to think that the batter part should be connected to the circuit board inside the key (it is completey detatched when you open it and rattles inside the key now)

    What can I do to sort it? Get the battery ting soldered back to the circuit board? Or is there anywher I can get a new key from? M neighbours are going spare at my alarm going off lol so any help is appreciated!

    1, What does the central locking do when you use the key in the door,
    2, Have you re-sync the key since the new battery,
    3, how old is the key,
    4, can you solder?

    Answer all 4 and we can help you.

    1, What does the central locking do when you use the key in the door,
    The central locing still works as normal when I use the key in the door
    2, Have you re-sync the key since the new battery,
    No, but the light on the key didnt work with a change of battery, so I was told this would make no difference. The battery is completely away from the circuit board now
    3, how old is the key,
    No Idea, its a 2000 X reg model, so 8 years if it was the same key from new but not sure as I have only had it 3 months
    4, can you solder?
    I could have a go but havent got a soldering iron, not done it since school tho! lol

    Hope this answers everything m8, its doing my head in!

    Usually the terminals break away inside the key. Take it apart, have a look for anything broken and it should be obvious to see where it needs soldering back to
