Replies and fixes

Please dont start double posts on same problem , doesn't help with replying or answering . Could try this

" It seems the central locking system can go out of sync when batteries are changed / disconnected and the way to re-set the system is:

Connect the new or re-charged
battery and then make sure all doors, bonnet and tailgate are closed. Then get
both keys and press the locking button 4 times on each key simultaneously (make sure you do
both keys) followed by pressing the unlock button 4 times on each key. You
should find all doors will be unlocked then.

It seems that after a flat or disconnected battery the keys
and door locks get out of sync, but this seems to sort it. On a very
rare occasion it has to be done twice but this normally works first time. "
