Remote Central locking not working.

I have a 57 1.9 JTD Lusso and the central locking will not work off the remote key fob.
The doors and boot open fine when the key is turned in the lock but not remotley from the fob.
Any ideas?
I have heard something about putting the key in the lock and holding the button for 10 seconds but this has not worked.

Never had this problem with the GT but remote central locking used to be a real headache on the GTV

Try unlocking both doors with the key slam them shut then lock them both with the key, I used to start with the drivers door on the GTV

Then try the remote

Hope this works

This happend to me recently on my 147. Try disconnecting the negative lead from the battery for 45 mins to reset the ECU. Did this and the keyfob sprung back to life!

try sitting in the car with engine running and press the button down inside so that you are locked inside then turn engine off,get out your car close the door and try to lock and that should work.
