Central locking oddity

I've been reading through some of the central locking posts, but mine seems to be having a different issue (2000 w reg). most the time it works without fault, and the central module shows everything all the time. However sometimes it just plain refuses to lock/unlock! I replaced the batteries in the remote, but this still happens. Sometimes it works form 30ft+ away, but when it refuses to unlock, I have to open the passenger door and do it form mm's away to get it to work. (This happens for locking and unlocking the car, even after a 30 min journey)

Any ideas as to what to look for?
