Forum rules

When you put a new thread up in the Workshop please put your car's year and model in the title, along with just a brief indicator of the problem.

Car Year - Car Model: Brief description of issue. EXAMPLE- 1999 9-3. Problems starting when hot

Please also add as much information as you can about the problem, to your post.

This will help us to help you, without having to ask basic details such as what car you have.

Threads with non-compliant titles will be moved to The Pit Lane (in which no replies can be posted, but the OP can edit the thread - upon which the thread will be released to the workshop forum)

Nb. Generic thread titles for truly generic issues that genuinely are not model or variant specific (such as "how do I change the spring in an forge wastegate actuator") are acceptable

**The first 5 posts for new users require individual moderator approval (which they will only get it if they are in line the rules of the forum). Please be patient and allow time for that to happen, and avoid duplicate postings.**

Went out to the car to get something out the boot. Unlocked the car opened the boot, got what I wanted closed it. Car wouldn't lock. Went in got the spare, locked the car. Put a new battery in my main key, still nothing. Totally at a loss with this,never heard or seen this before.

Check if the button has come loose inside the key, I had to resolder mine, but it could be just the top bit that clips on top...
Relatively simple, remove the key, pry open the plastic, and then take out the board.
