Another method to check if the fob is working is get a digital camera, the one from a phone should do. Then point the fob at the camera as though you are taking a picture of it and press the button. The IR bit should flash, you can't see it with the naked eye but can through this method. If it doesn't then it is the fob. Mine is intermittant atm and it shows as it takes a few attempts to get into the car, ha.

I will be uploading a video tomorrow evening showing what i mean.
Currently in Mike11's garage:
An LPG powered Ford Focus ST170.
