You can check if the fob is emitting IR through a digital camera/camcorder - although the CCDs in digicams have IR filters built in, a strong source of IR such as your keyfob or a remote control is usually visible as a bright blue/white light on the camera's screen.

Next thing to check will be the receiver in the roof console - the plastic panel with the IR receiver 'blob' on it slides forward with a little persuasion. Check the receiver PCB is dry as it's fairly common for the aerial mounting to leak straight into it. If that's ok and there's no sign of dampness up there, it's worth checking the connections on this PCB and also the central locking ECU itself, which is a small box clipped to the right-hand side of the fusebox with two large-ish connectors running into it (one black and one blue?) Mine had a corroded connection about a month ago which was resolved with some contact cleaner and a cotton bud...
