1999 2.0 lock problem

Hi,
Can anyone shed some light on a problem I'm having with a 2.0 focus ghia
1999 as I can now only lock the car using the key manually. I thought it
was the battery in the remote key that had failed, so I changed it but
this did not work. Not sure where to look is it fuses? relays or
something simpler? Any help greatly appreciated.

John

The likelihood is that the key fob has failed. This is a fairly common fault
apparently, my own '99 car suffering in the same way.

I lost interest in getting it fixed when my dealer was talking of around
60UKP for a fob, and another 40UKP to program it to match the car!

programming here

buy a key off ebay, take the fob off the key & on fit your original key,
programme, bingo!
