Help. Something wierd is happeneing. I tried to open my car this morning with the remote button. Nothing. When you press 'lock' there was an audible noise from the car, but on unlock 'nothing' and the car remained locked. So I went and got the spare key, but had exactly the same result. I tried the 1st key again and the doors opened. So, late for work, I set off. I get to work and have to check to see if all is OK. It wasn't, I was back to square 1. So I figured I'd try sticking the key in the lock and opening it that way. At this point the alarm goes off. Pressing the unlock button does nothing, so I stuck the key in the ignition thinking if it was a battery problem then maybe at least that would ping the chip in the key or something. Nope. Engine now running but alarm still blaring. There then followed much frantic button pushing and eventually the alarm stopped. Not looking forward to 5pm now. Any ideas? The odd thing is all the time I could hear the locking mechanism activate when I pressed the lock button. So sender and reciever would seem OK. Its like it just ignored the unlock/disarm.
