    Default HELP!!! key working but wont open car

    hi guys

    got a weird one here. Went to my car as usual and pressed the open button on the key and nothing.

    the light on the key comes on i have swapped the battery over and still nothing.

    i used the key to check the central locking and that works but i never opened the door incase the alarm goes nuts.

    Anybody know what the problem might be?

    also if i use the key to open the door will the alarm go off? and will i be able to drive it

    any alternatives?

    Dont you have to open the car with the key, (long hold in open position) and then have the key in the ignition turned on ?

    May be talking carp, but worth a go

    open the car with the key (dont worry about the alarm). Get in and shut the door, put the key in the ignition and switch the ignition on. now press the lock button on the key. The doors will all lock then immediately open again. Turn the ignition off, get out the car and try the buttons. the key should now be re-synchronised to the car. HTH
