156 key's gone funky
Starting yesterday my key for the 156 has started acting up.
I can unlock the car fine on the key, but if i try lock it again soon after it takes a couple of presses to do it.
Then, whenever i press the boot release button it screws the whole thing up, the little red light on the fob stays on for a good minute or so and nothing works. Eventually it'll go off and i'll be able to open/close the car again.
Now i thought it could be a dead battery (despite only putting a fresh un in 6 months ago) so i swapped in a fresh one and the problem still persists.
So then i thought it may be the Key fob itself, but i tried it with the spare key and the same things happen.
Has this happened before to anyone and what was the fix? Key problems or sensors etc etc?
