Hi, I own a vauxhall corsa 1.4 2008.
The problem is if I didn't drive my car for a day my battery would go flat, and the last time it went flat my car wouldn't unlock or lock using the key fob, I can only open and unlock the drivers side with the key. I've changed the batteries in the key and it still does not work. The indicators still flash when I press the key fob, and the lock inside does the same. I've tried resetting the fob but still no luck. Please help. Thank you.

Also, a 2008 means you have a Corsa D, so your question is better placed there (Corsa D UK or VxON as andy has just linked). Although you might get some answers here, as it's not a very specific D-problem by the sound of it.

It's worth finding out how much charge your car's battery (not the fob's) is holding. Pretty much any place selling batteries can do this. If yours can't last a day on the driveway without going flat, I suspect it's on its last legs. This will give you all sorts of central locking problems partly because that takes more juice than flashing the indicators but also it might have gone out of sync with your fob, having been drained out so much.

Assuming you need a fresh battery under the bonnet, have a search for "Corsa D fob locking syncro" or similar to see what the procedure is. Usually something simple like pressing a button for 10 secs while turning the ignition on - that sort of thing.
