Ignition not working.

Still having problems with my car

I've already recharged my battery (it went flat few days back); now, when using the keyfob I hear the bleeping but the door won't open - no problem, I just use the standard key to get into the car. Movement is detected, the alarm goes off for 10 seconds or so (pressing the keyfob doesn't make it go away). Finally, when I turn the key the engine doesn't start up AND the alarm sounds again. My thinking is that either the central locking - and the alarm - is playing up after a cold night or the settings have been reset (the battery was fully drained). Any advice is appreciated.

Take the battery out of the key for 10 or so min's try again re insert battery and press the button 10 or 20 times and see if that works, when you press the keyfob button how many times does the LED flash?... Try starting the car 10 times i seem to remember somthing similar with my keys
