Try resetting the key fob
to reset the FOB you get in the car, shut the doors. Then hold the central locking lock all button down until the doors lock and unlock. The mobilizer light goes solid red. At this point you have 10 seconds to click the new UN-programmed FOB. the doors will unlock and lock. 
Other procedure is :--

Ignition 'off', disconnect the battery +ve lead - should be easy thumbscrew connection. Ignition 'on' two clicks, reconnect the battery carefully. Switch off, close door and try unlock/lock with key fob control.

--------

Inside your car turn off the ignition and press and hold the central locking switch in the car itself (don't let go yet). You should hear the doors double lock. Then the light on the dashboard should stop flashing and stay on fully. Whilst STILL (!) pressing the central locking switch press the key fob/blip. Then you can let go of the central locking switch. Try checking it then and see how you get on.

--------

But if the central locking system itself is not working then,The central locking switch is got corroded or loose or faulty.It has to be checked and replaced.Then the above reset procedure should be tried and it will help.

Thanks. Keep updated for any more query. You can rate this solution and show your appreciation.

It could be your onboard computer or locking module, as the guy next door had an identical problem on his Megane. A tech came and changed a module then programmed the 'brains'.

Key fob lights up but doesn't work even with a new battery


I'm more familiar with Range Rovers and Saab's when it comes to key fobs but if you changed the battery you have to re-program the key fob. If you do not have an owner's manual that can take you through the steps you might want to try: push and hold the lock button on the key fob, put it in the driver's side door and turn to lock. With the button still depressed turn back to open, remove the key and release the button. If this doesn't work check any and all fuses associated with your system and last but not least you could take it to a dealer. Good luck!
