If your key is the IR type then the cars immobiliser is linked to the central locking. If the key doesn't work then the immobiliser stays on. The IR led on the end of the key can be checked by looking at the end of the led with a mobile phone camera. Whilst you are looking at the end of the led with the phone press the button on the key. if you see the led flash white then the key is working, if not then the fault is within the key, it is usually down to one or both of the led's legs breaking off from the circuit board inside the key. The legs can be resoldered back onto the circuit board to restore the key to full working order.
