    More symptoms needed. Is it a P38, L322, Sport, etc? Which batteries did you use and how many? How old is the car as there are several ways of resynching the fobs depending on model year. What happens when you turn the key? i.e engine turns over or all light on and just plain dead and does the fob led come on when you press the buttons (provided batteries are in the right way round)?

    Not sure if this applies to your model, but when I changed my batteries afterwards I had to put the key in the drivers door - turn the key (keeping the key turned) press a button on the fob, then turn the key the other way and repeat pressing the other fob button.

    Have a look at the above thread. It's self explanatory. Otherwise you will need the EKA code which is free from the main dealer provided you (or the reg'd keeper) takes in the V5 with other ID. There is a long winded method of inputting the code via the driver's door lock which I'll explain if you need it. (It is in the owner's handbook though if you have one)

    hi people have been and got the code but when i put it in via the door lock stil nothing happens the only thing that i can think of is that the door does not lock from the key and has not done since i got it but did not bother me as used the fob could this be why the code is not being reconised the door does unlock from the key but just does not lock if anyone could let me know asap it would be great as really need to get the car going and if this the problem any idea on how to sort it not locking thanks

    you can set the window by tricking it if you've got a dodgy window mechanism,go through the procedure of setting the window and just before the window touches the top, block it with a piece of wood or something(this tells the car that it has reached the top,you might have to do it quite a few times before it sets),this worked for me as i had the same problem,couldnt enter EKA code without windows set but my window winding mechanism was buggered so couldnt set in the normal way
