    Dont know if this has been covered else where. But if your Keyfob doesnt work then you can reset them.

    1. Turn Key to Ignition Possition 1,Turn off and remove Key (within 5 seconds)
    2. With doors and windows closed Press and hold Open Button and Press Close button 3 Times
    3. Doors will lock and unlock to confirm Key is Programmed
    4. For any additional keys repeat Number 2.
    Do not turn ignition again as this will wipe out any keys you have just programmed.
    This is a tried and tested Reprogramming as i have just done it with one of ours that decided to stop working.

    I was lazy and got Sytners in Leicester to do it for me for free. At least if it went wrong they would sort it out and the guy at the service desk offered to reset our keys.

    Does this work on the key with remote built in or the house brick one?
