remote lock/unlock not working

Hi all,

This is my first post here.
We just bough a 2nd hand mini cooper s 2005 from the uk.
After a few days, the battery was flat in the morning. Not sure why but maybe some light were left on.
Trying to jump start was hard, it would just flash the lights but it wouldn't start.
After googling a lot I found the 4 presses on the unlock button and it worked (to unable the immobilizer).
BUT NOW THE KEY DOES NOT WORK TO REMOTE LOCK AND UNLOCK THE CAR.

Is there another trick to fix this?

please help.

regards
joni

I have tried searching here but no luck. Will keep trying.
This feels like a very complicated car.
I thought a lock/unlock button would always work no matter what.
Thanks for your reply.
