Could not access car with key fob. So access car manually and central lock worked afterwards when I got home.

Possibly due to interference blocking your remote,s signal,or battery in your remote low.

if the central locking worked ok via using the key then most likely will need a replacement battery for you key fob as the weaker they get the lower the signal becomes and will not operate the locks properly
