    i had this the other day i opened the car with the key and the alarm went off as i had no remote locking.
    I fired the engine up and then stopped it took out the key and the remote locking worked again.

    I replaced the battery a week ago, hoping that the central locking would kick back in but no joy yet

    spare seems to work :D but have swapped the battery round and doesn't seem to be the problem, strange one key works and not the other!
