    Maybe its being pressed in your pocket or you are replacing it with bad batteries?

    I'd be with wardy on this

    They do have a habbit of falling apart inside the key

    split open the keyfob, stick a folded piece of paper ontop of the battery, and snap the two piece of keyfob back together.

    Should hold the battery down good and proper then

    I can vouch for this having done it in the past with my old Astra keyfob.

    Oh i would have said that myself if you explained a bit better.
    The same thing happened to me about the battery thing falling apart, if you keep pushing the buttons at different angles it will eventually lock. I just assumed you had already done that to check that the thing still works.
    Yea the paper thing will cure it, i did it to mine the other day and has been fine since.
