Yesterday, both of my key fobs stopped working, I locked the car with my one (4 yrs old with good battery), we went to shop and 15 mins later came back and neither my fob nor my wife's fob would open the car doors. The central lock button on the dash works and opens and closes the doors as normal. I have replaced the battery in mine, and I have tried re-pairing by holding lock button and turning on ignition for 30 seconds, but don't get any confirmation bleep. Still both do not work.

Thank you very much whittingehame !
I have checked both F14 and F15 and tested them, and fuses are fine.
Not sure what else it might be, any suggestions would be appreciated.

My wife's key fob suddenly started working this morning.
I bought some more new batteries, and replaced both just now in both fobs, and cleaned contacts inside with isopropyl , but my fob still does not work, tried to pair again, but no luck.

Something must have gone wrong with my fob circuit board so will get a new fob, at least the receiver part in the car does work.

Thank you for your help @whittingehame
