Have you re-synched the fob ?

1. Turn the Ignition switch to the ON position using the first key.
2. Press the LOCK button for 10 seconds.
3. Remove the key and wait for 10 seconds.
4. Check the Plip key operation.
5. Repeat for second Plip key if required.

i had the same problem before
the problem with the fob key design , i suffered from this for 6 month and i thought that may key is broken , if ur key work inside the ignition when it is off and it can lock and unlock the problem is with the cover of ur key , when u changed ur batter the conections are not ok because battery are at one side and the chip is the other side , u want it to work when u push lock or unlock just push with ur finger under the key blade and it will work
u can just change the cover
i hope this will solve ur problem

hi thanks for the reply
i have reprogrammed the key but if its further than an inch from the ignition barrell the remote locking wont work
this is the type of key i have

where abouts is the receiver in the car for the remote locking as i think it could be that as the car went in the garage for the mot and come out without the remote working after a bit of work was done on it ( suspension spring )

Make sure you use a good quality battery, Duracell or similar. Cheap batteries such as found on eBay for example aren't powerful enough.

Remote central locking problem

Hi did you get anywhere with this ? I have a very similar problem, I can only get the remote to work in one particular spot nearly touching the middle of the outside top edge of the drivers door. Dan

I thought in the two years since this had been posted they might have found the fix for the problem, its worth asking isn't it. Thanks for your help daedric
