    Try using your spare key in case the transponder is giving up.

    Any other ideas for this??
    I am Getting this issue but the light isn't always on.
    My mate connected a diagnostic tool but no errors were found. (note the light wasnt on at the time, it's intermittent)
    Also I only have the 1key so can't try a spare as surgested.

    There are tools and there are tools!
    What did your mate use to read the codes?
    If you don't find out what is causing it you could spend a hell of a lot replacing bits for the sake of it.

    Even a cheap bluetooth unit from Ebay and a smart phone will give you an idea of the code. Put one in the car, wait for the next issue, read the codes.
    Then you can address the problem
