Not been on here for ages but hope you can help me with a problem I have with both of my remote keys. I keep having to replace the batteries more often than I am sure I should have to - it's as if they are being drained. I cannot open the boot with my remote keys either - I have to press the button on the dash. Also, I am having trouble setting the alarm with the remote key and often have to put the key in the lock instead. The red light flashes on the dash but is the alarm set if it is done this way?
I am wondering if I need to get new keys, could the buttons be 'worn out' I have an 03 147 but I do not use it a lot (mileage is about 24,500!) If I do need new keys, are there any localish alternatives to Mangoletsi in the cheshire area as I would rather go elsewhere if I could!
Any help greatly received - thanks!!
