another key isnt working and hence think its needs resynching

also how does one work out if the key is IR or RF
Does your key have like a little bulb on the end of the plastic ? Is there also a like round dome / eye in the car up by the rear view mirror. If so then your locking is IF and not RF. RF has neither of these things.
I think yours will be RF, so the below may help you out. I got it from another post. So it may or may not work.


Hold the remote control button down for longer than 10 seconds (until
the red tell tale light on the key extinguishes) then press it again 3
times. Check that the doors lock and unlock correctly.


1. Igniton ON

2. Press and hold the central locking button for 5 seconds

3. LED on the dash board will go off, come back on and begin to flash.
The flashes correspond to the first digit of the 4 PIN security code
release the button when the first digit has been "flashed" and then
press the button again.

4. Wait for the second digit to be "flashed" then release and re-press
the button continue until all digits have been entered.

5. If you have entered the code correctly the LED will then go out and
the car can be started to code the remote, switch off the ignition and
press the central locking button again.

6. Press remote button 2 times within the immediate vicinity of the
pick up (in the roof). On some vehicles you may need to switch the
ignition back on to achieve this however.
