Just changed my battery in my key fob and when I press the button to unlock my car it wont open or lock. If I put the key in the barrel it will lock it. Car starts fine and no other issues. It done this just before I changed the battery too so would the old one dying have caused a fault somewhere?

Turn the ignition to the 1st position using the non plip key, hold the plip key right up to the sensor by the mirror and press the button, turn off the ignition and wait 5 seconds.
The key should now be coded.

These fobs are terrible, mine used to drain the batteries really quickly so I just gave up on it in the end.

There's a common fault with the fobs, the circuit in them can remain closed and drains the battery in no time.

Luckily the RF fobs don't have this issue, mine still has the original battery in it and the car is nearly 13 years old!

Unfortunately Chris has the IR one which renders your post useless as informative as it is Whistle
