    Default Car locks but won,t unlock?

    As the title really the car will lock via the remote key fob but won,t unlock with the remote key fob.

    So at the moment I,m unlocking the door with the key letting the alarm sound (Pathetic the cat is louder meowing) and then turning the ignition on

    Anyone got any ideas? I thought if the battery had gone it would not lock?

    Also how come I can unlock the car with the key open the boot and the alarm does not sound yet any of the 4 doors and the alarm will sound? Is the boot not covered by the std Vx security system?

    Thanks

    Does the red LED on the key illuminate when you push the unlock button?

    I've never seen a Vectra-C fob with an LED.

    Yep the LED works on both remotes but would only lock. However just changed both the batteries and nothing car won,t recognise them at all!

    They don,t need programming once the batteries have been changed do they?

    Ok got this sorted, not sure what it was really put new batteries in and then the immobliser kicked in and alarm. Played around with it got key in ignition and managed to start the car and pressed the lock/unlock a few times whilst in ignition and now both keys work.
    However it appears that vectra boots arn,t part of the alarm system as you can unlock the car with the key, open the boot and no alarm open any of the doors or bonnet and alarm works.

    I am confused. Why would the alarm sound when the car has been unlocked?

    The alarm has to be switched off via the remote fob. If you unlock the doors with the key, then open them, the alarm will sound until you either press the fob button or put the key in the ignition and turn it.
