    Default Key fobs/alarm/ central locking playing up?

    tried my car key this morning, and wouldnt unlock the car - no flashing lights, nothing. Tried my wifes keys, worked ok?, Bought a new battery ( which when tested showed 2.5v , so should have been ok) , and still no good.
    Then things got wierd, tried my wifes key after swapping bateries to test, and it wouldnt work???? left with two keys that didnt work???
    opened the door via the lock ( which set off the alarm) and started the car, let it run for a while in case battery a bit flat, and then tried the keys again, and both worked????
    wierd????

    theyll probs need pairing with the car again, as they have lost their settings by the sound of it, its in the car manual how to do, try it with both keys in case one of them is a duffer, its an easy process and doesnt cost anything so its worth a try

    Occasionally the keys can end up out of sequence
    This usually means one of the keys, typically where a battery has been replaced, will stop working
    Simply insert the key into the ignition, lock the doors on the remote, then wait
    The warning light on the centre console should flash three times
    This key should work now

    Do you turn the ignition on, or just put the keys in?

    No need to turn the key, just insert
    One of my keys has snapped and I can start the car up with the key in the ignition and the chip sitting on the passenger seat!
