Mazda 2 remote locking problems

The remote locking on my 2011 Mazda 2 is acting up and I have to press the key several times to lock and to unlock the car. The battery for one of the keys was changed a couple of months ago at the last service; however, the same problem exists with both keys. Any ideas?

The rear hatch lock is vulnerable to faults due to water ingress. I had this on one in Thailand (in the rainy season).
