locking prob.

we have two key fobs,both have central locking buttons which used to work.
last week the most used fob became intermittent,only occasionally working,
then it would lock the car then it would unlock immediately have tried the spare but nothing. could it be the battries? do you just replace or is there something,else to do?

Sometimes its just a case of resetting.
You have to switch on ign, switch off, open and close the doors then lock doors manually and then unlock manually, then I think you start up engine and stop again.
Then get out and try the fob.
I think thats the procedure, not had to do it for a while now, but its something along those lines.
I get it with mine from time to time, I think its moisture getting into the works.
