    Quick central locking question

    hi, since the beginning of this week my key seems to keep losing sync with the central locking, on monday i went shopping and it wouldnt unlock so i resynced it and all was well, next time i used it, exactly the same it lost sync, it always seems to open ok (apart from the once) it usually loses it when i get out of the car to lock it, the range is pretty poor so it could need a new battery i guess, im a bit nervous though as the last one i did i snapped the battery connector and the car wouldnt start with that key, so this is the only key i have now, anyone know how much replacement keys are? thanks

    Change the battery mate. Most likely the problem.

    .....and wedge a piece of folded up card between battery and case as the little legs on the battery holder may have become dislodged from the PCB (Printed Circuit Board)
