    Default immobilisor oddity

    right heres one for you....
    52 plate 1.8 club
    neither key will work the central locking or boot release
    one key always starts the car
    one key sometimes starts the car ( get the padlock symbol when it wont)
    doing the central locking resync thingy will sometimes let one of the keys lock the door but only once
    leds work for all 3 buttons on both remotes except for the close door button on one
    the keys do look battered so im thinking its just dodgy keys what do you think ?

    oh batterys are good

    Do they work the locks physically? ie, if you put the key in the lock and turn it, does the car lock?

    I think you might be having to shell out for a new key or 2

    If it is a key problem, as opposed to an immobiliser one, then get the keys from Vx. £37.50 + VAT will get you a flippy one and the dealer shouldn't charge any more thean £15-20 + VAT for the programming.
