    Default key issues

    When i came back from holiday a couple of weeks ago I returned to my car to get in but my key wouldnt unlock the doors on the button, luckily my wife had hers on so we managed to get off before people started moaning. At the time I put it down to gremlins. Today it did the same thing and again I was lucky, the windows were down, the car locked itself but the alarm went off. I couldnt turn it off on the button but as the window was open I put the ley in the ignition and all was well again.

    Just wondering if anyone else has had this problem at all. Im just worried about being out and then getting stuck with no means of getting home or in the car?

    Sorry, thanks. I thought that but only had them replaced during service a while ago. Besides if the batteries were the problem would it not still cause a problem when inserted in the ignition?

    yeah other key works fine, will replace the battery and see what happens. I'll look elsewehere on forum to see what battery it is and how easy it is to sync once replaced, thanks

    I have a handset with no batteries in it
    You simply unlock the car manually, the alarm goes off, then insert it into the ignition key, and the alarm switches off
    Start the car as normal

    If you don't use the key for a few weeks the main unit within the car rotates the code, putting them out of synchronisation
    As above, get into the car and on restarting they will be resynchronised
    Get out of the car and lock car using remote
    If this fails then the battery is flat and needs replaced

    Thats the trouble, the actual getting in to the car. On the ferry the key turned and the door lock could be heard but I dont think the dead lock unlocked so couldnt get in at all. Have ordered the batteries now so will wait and see once they are changed.

    Manually using the key will over ride the deadlock on the drivers door. You have to be forceful with it to overcome the mechanism. Once you've put the key in the ignition (to mute the alarm) the other doors should then be able to be unlocked via the button on the door panel next to the window switches.
