Default 207 Key Fob Battery

Well youd think a simple battery change in the KeyFob wouldnt be such a c**t of a job, but now im left with no REMOTE CENTRAL LOCKING. Anyways out with the old and in with the new battery, no RCL, tried doing the IGNITION ON, HOLD LOCK BUTTON etc etc as per the Peugeot Handbook, again no luck...

So what is it you actually have to do to get the RCL working again?

Thanks in advance.

get in the car

turn ignition on (dont start engine) & hold down lock button for 20 seconds

turn off & take out the key

put key back in

turn to same position as before and hold lock button for 5 seconds

take out key

get out of the car

lock the door with the actual key (don't press buttons to lock it!)

open the car with the button

that should do it for you

I just tried this procedure, to no avail.
Its a 207 2008 yrmodel.
When i bought the car, the seller told me to change battery, which i did. The remote locking then worked 1 out 10 times. Now its completely dead. I use the key to lock/lock up, but the cold weather sometimes freeze the lock...
I only have 1 fob, the sparekey is just a flat key.

Any other suggestions?
How do you rule out if the transmitter/circuit board isn't broken?

Thanks.

We picked up a 2008 plate 207cc at the weekend and have the same problem, one of th keys looks unused and doesn't work.I changed the battery and still nothing. I will try the procedure above though and see what happens. As asked above, is there anyway of checking to see if the key is faulty?
Thanks

The actual operation is.
Wait 1min from last operation on the ign switch ie turned off. Put key in ign turn on and hold lock button for 5 sec, turn off ign and wait 1min. Then the key fob should be operational.

I have one key which i have put a new battery in. I have tried both methods and neither work with the key fob shut.
I have opened the fob and manually pressing the circuit board into place the fob will work. Put it back in and no joy. I have tried pulling the contacts up to ensure a good contact but cannt see a way i can test with the fob shut up... any ideas?
