Do you want the Road Tax system to change? Do you have thoughts on the potential changes to the Road Tax system? | No thanks

Hi guys,

My remote central locking has packed in on my Fiesta. I have tried a new battery in the key fob, but with no lock. This literally happened out of the blue - In the morning it worked - when I got to work, nothing!

I have a horrible feeling this may get expense so if there is anything I can check myself please let me know.

Thanks

Central Locking still works, luckily - just not the remote central locking.

Thanks for the suggestion - I thoguht that would be it - although the manual seems to indicate resynchronisation is only necessary if the key will not start the car.

Is that method above for just the RCL? For resyncing my key, the manual describes a procedure needing two keys - although this seems to be for new keys that have not been coded at all.

Cheers guys for comments so far. Can't believe this - only had it 3 days :'(

All sorted - I did, in fact have to reprogram the key.

Luckily I have a Ford TIS Cd which confirmed this needs to be done for remote locking as well. A strange omission for the manual.
