We bought the car in February 2007 only a year old. It is now 4 years old with 40,000 miles and 2 services. The CENTRAL LOCKING ON THE KEY STOPPED WORKING. Lookers Liverpool said probably needs reprogramming £75+vat. That didnt work so they said we have to remove dash to check wiring £225+vat, no fault found there.Then they said BSI unit failed £300 +vat for part.Couldnt get that working then they needed a new key £125+vat.It is now working TOTAL COST £829.00.THE ONLY THING WRONG WITH IT WAS THE CENTRAL LOCKING WOULDNT WORK ON THE KEY BUT YOU CANT MANUALLY LOCK THE DOORS EASILY.

OK - the key thing is quite common. For whatever th reason it loses its code so this is what you do.
<br/>
<br/>1. Sit in the car with all doors closed and ignition off.
<br/>2. Keeping everything off and all doors closed put key in ignition, turn on ignition (don't start engine).
<br/>3. Press and hold the button on the key for 10 seconds.
<br/>4. Take key out of ignition and wait in car without opening doors for 1 minute.
<br/>5. Open doors and key should work.
<br/>
<br/>If it doesn't get the battery changed and repeat.
