Hi, welcome to the community.

Firstly I'm not hugely technical myself but I believe something as simple as the remote going out if sync could have happened. If you press the lock button on the key fob several times in succession then it should re-sync the fob with the car. Hope that helps. :smile:

Could be the battery in the fob is on the blink, one or more experts will be along later, probably after working hours and, may be able to offer a proper solution.
