Sounds like it could be a GEM problem.

Go under the dash on the drivers side and there's a GEM Module with a row of coloured plugs, flip the yellow locking levers over , disconnect the plugs and reconnect them.

Sometimes you get water ingress which causes corroded connections, check the plugs and the pins on the GEM for corrosion.

If that doesnt solve the problem you will need to source a replacement GEM with the same part number as yours, fit it then code your central locking key(s) to the GEM by turning your key in the ignition from 0 to II 4 times quickly, you should hear a chime from the car, then press a button on your remote, you will hear the same chime again which tells you the fob is paired to the GEM. If you have more than one fob you will need to program it at same time or it won't work.
