    Central Locking ( Key )

    I recently changed the battery in my key and it flashes on the key when you press it but it has stopped working on the car so i have to manually do it.

    Any ideas on what the problem is and has anyone else have this problem ?

    Put it in the ignition and turn to position 2 so all dash lights are on. No need to start the engine. Once in position 2 press the close button for a few seconds and it will re programme itself.

    Try re-syncing the remote.
    Turn on the ignition (so that the dash lights are on).
    Immediately press & hold the lock button on the key remote.
    You should eventually hear the doors lock/unlock.
    Everything should now be re-synced.
