Collected my 54 plate MINI today and the remote locking doesnt work, although the central locking does when you put key in the door.

Is this a major problem? Could it just need a new battery in the key? why is it not working?

I tried the spare key aswell and that wont do it remotely....wierd...help!

battery can't be change on those keys.
the key gets charge when inserted into the key barrel.
It might just need to be charged and initialized.
Seeing both of your key doesn't work, it might be the receiver as well. Further check must be carry out in a dealership.

What sort of key is it that you have, got a pic to show me?

Is it just the drivers door? Mine was when it went.
I searched on mini2 and found it reported to be known problem with the door lock mechanism.

So I ordered a new one for £56 and spent an evening fitting it. Needed to remove the door card and
glass to get at it. Problems gone and the door locks and unlocks properly.

I also put a new battery in both my keys, but that didn't work. Don't know about them charging from the key barrel, at least not on my normal keys.
