    sometimes the key fob looses contact with the battery so looses its synch with the car. jam a peice of paper in between the key and battery and it will keep it tight. you will then have to put the key in the ignition, turn to the step just before starting the car, wait for the lights to go out and then press the lock or open button. car will then lock and quickly reopen again and your key is now synched back to your car

    Yes it could be that. It just needs to break away for a few minutes without you knowing

    sometimes something breaks in the keys and you have to get it soldered, im guessing thats after jamming paper in the key fob, as when i soldered mins someone had already jammed paper in
