intermittant remote locking problem

Hi all, I have a 2001 alfa 166 that has two factory keys with remote door and boot buttons.Both keys start car and operate boot and door locks manually. Both keys also open the boot and door locks but only when they feel like it! When one does not work the other will not work either so Im thinking my problem is not with the keys. They will be fine for weeks at a time and then I will loose remote locking for days then it will just come good.I have checked all the fuses and key batteries and all led red lights are working. I have no alarm fitted with the car.
I have noticed that there is a relay for the remote locking located behind the battery (direction indicator relay??) only for cars not fitted with alarms and am wondering if this could be causing my problems? Can anyone help with this? Im in Australia and only a handfull of 166 models are here.
