    Unfortunetly my keyfob battery has died for my 56 plate LEON.

    Can I change it myself (if so how) or is a trip to the stealers in order?

    Thanks in advance

    I fixed this myself with the key for my 56 plate Leon only a couple of months ago.

    The battery you need is a CR2032, I paid £1 for 1 from a local motor factor store but you can get them cheaper.

    Here's a link to the guide I found.

    Changed the battery and the central locking still appears not to be working.

    when a button is pressed the red light on the fob shows.

    Where to next?

    I believe that if the battery has been dud for too long or the the battery is out of the key for too long it can lose its "coding". There is information in other posts that explain how to re-code the key.

    I think that the "coding" relates to the remote part only though and the key should still work to open the door and start the engine.

    Perhaps someone with a bit more insight could help.

    Sorry, the key is still working fine, jus tthe buttons dont (although the little red light on the fob still flickers).

    I was very quick when changing the battery.

    i'll have a look for how to re-code.
