If u have spare key try that if it works perfect it's safe to say u need a remote they do tend to only last few years an especially if u don't take extra care which let's be honest who concentrates on never dropping ur keys ha

Maybe its just given up  :unsure:

 

Mine did stop unlocking, i took it aoart and the unlock microswitch had come away from the circuit board, i put it all back together and its worked since.

 

Might be worth taking apart and looking for anything obvious...
