Central locking & keyfob issue

I have an issue with the keyfob/central locking. The central locking works ok with the key, but the keyfob only arms and disarms the alarm, it won't lock or unlock the doors. Any ideas?

Try reprogramming the key fobs, this is often needed after changing batteries in fobs.

get in vehicle and close and lock the doors, do not touch brake pedal during any of this

Turn on and off the key 8 times in 10seconds end 8th time with key in RUN(on), doors should unlock and lock and if door chime is working it will be on.
Press the lock button on fob
Doors should unlock and lock, and chime should go off
Turn off key

Test fob

Repeat same procedure for any new or old fobs, you have to do them one at a time

Hi, Thanks for this info. I tried as you suggested but unfortunately it did not work. I didn't get the unlock and lock to happen. I did try several times to make sure i had followed the instructions correctly. Any further ideas ??
