Keyfob not working on 156

Hi everyone,
The keyfob on my 2002 156 has stopped working!

I was parked at the supermarket last week - I pressed the unlock door button on the key fob and the door unlocked fine. A couple of seconds later, I pressed the boot unlock button at the exact moment a lady unlocked her Lexus in the next bay and the boot didn't open. Neither button on my keyfob has worked since.

My wife's keyfob works fine so the receiver in the car obviously okay. I've tried replacing the battery without success. I'm an electronic engineer by trade and I've also connected the keyfob to a spectrum analyser at work and I can see a burst of RF at 433MHz every time I press button so I assume the keyfob is working.

Does anyone have any ideas? Is there a resync procedure I can try?

Any help would be much appreciated!

Hi all,
Does anyone have any suggestions or is going to a dealer the only option?

Any help would be very much appreciated!
