    Yo,

    I recently replaced the car's battery.

    When I did the reprogram procedure it did not work (the light on the fob was flashing but the doors did not do the unlock/lock thing)

    I tried this with both my keys with no possitive result.

    Am i missing something? I'm fed up of using the key to physically unlock and lock the doors, and the alarm doesnt turn on without the fob.

    Cheers in advance.

    Right so you're saying that both my keys have failed?

    I've got to get new keys and get them cut etc? Don't the keys have the imobiliser chips built into them?

    if you only changed the car battery I can't see you need new keys.

    Probably worth having a look at your battery just to check its all ok.

    Double check swapping the keys over when you do the procedure
