Just a quick question chaps, my remote key fob has stopped open/closing the doors, is there away to reprogram them, or is a case of going to Alfa

Battery Ok?

The internal connections are somewhat tentative within the key fob. If you've got a spare that works, try swapping the batteries, otherwise clean all the contacts with a cotton bud dipped in meths or isopropyl alcohol and tweak the springy fingers to increase the contact pressure.
Depending on the age and state of the fob, you may need to dismantle it;), (the screw is hidden under the Alfa badge), which will need to be stuck back afterwards. Then you can do a more thorough job of cleaning and tensioning the skinny little contacts. This approach has never failed me and if you don't mind a little DIY, its free! ;)
