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
did the garage remove the batteryhi 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.hi im new to the forum and i have a problem with my 08 plate 307 estate
the battery on my keyfob went flat so i changed it and now the central locking will only lock with the keyfob if it is in or by the ignition barrel
any ideas ???????
thanks in advance
