Found 2nd Jun 2009
I came out to my car yesterday and the central locking didnt open my door when i pressed the key fob, it worked about an hour ago....

i have to manually open and lock the door now lol,
i just bought a new battery for the fob today and it still didnt work, the lady in the shop said because the battery was changed you might have to get the fob reset....that isnt right coz iv changed the battery before without that problem

has anyone had this problem before? what have you done to sort it?
i thot it might be a fuse......dont think so tho

thanks for any help folks


you have too put key in ignition within 30 sec of unlocking car and hold 1 of the buttons for a couple secs the doors will lock and unlock, your battery might be low in key

I keep getting this problem in my vectra. Just put the key in ignition and press the button. If it does not work then you may hold any of the button for a while longer. the lock would respond and there you go.....
