    Sounds like you need to resync the key with the car. You only get 30 secs or so to change the batteries before it loses it's 'pairing'. I can't recall the procedure off the top of my head, but it is in the owners manual. If you haven't got a manual let me know and I'll look in my manual (or somebody else may if they get there first)

    BTW welcome to the site

    To reprogramme, put the key in the ignition, turn until you get the dash lights, then press the fob buttons. If successful, the central locking will activate.

    As above, with ignition on, press lock button on fob once. Doors should all lock and immediately unlock. That's it, job done. Then try locking the car with the fob in the normal manner. HTH
