Default Electrical gremlin

Evening all

An electrical question for you... we've just put my ZT190 back on the road after a 6 months rest and it has an annoying issue.

I cannot alarm/lock the car with the fob (yes I changed the battery in the fob). The red button on the fob flashes when I press the 'alarm' button but the car does not respond.

I have to lock (with the interior door plunger) the rear doors and passenger door, and then the drivers door with the key.
I can, however, unlock/un-alarm the car with fob as usual.
The car does lock and unlock using the centre console button

As suggested elsewhere I disconnected the negative terminal on the battery for 10 mins and reconnected. It did work a couple of times after that, but then stopped again.

Any thoughts please?
Anyone in the Leeds/York area who could have a look with me at it maybe?

Many thanks
