    right my key fob randomly stopped working

    it worked then 4 hours later it didnt, i had to press the buttons really hard for it to work and now it wont work at all,

    iv opened it up and checked the voltages and the battey is full and thers a charging voltage when its in the ignition so that rules out the battery and coil,

    checked all the switched with my multimeter and they all work when pressed etc but still no worki with the car,

    i only have this one key plus my gray valet one and black plaskic key.

    iv tryed to reprogram it but to no avail..

    is there anything else i can check with inpa, or checks on the key to see if it can be sorted before i end up forking out £140 for a new key :/ cheers

    Your diversity amplifier also doubles as the central locking amplifier. Worth a check on the connections.

    It will be a box attached to the c-pillar on the lhs at the rear behind the interior trim.
