The remote will not open the car, but will lock it. Have changed the battery but made no difference. Any solutions please.

Faulty micro switch in the fob?
There used to places on eBay that repaired the fobs quite cheaply.

Also possible it's the small rubber mushroom under the button that presses the micro switch.
Remove the PCB and gave a look. If it is that just buy a complete fob on eBay and transfer all the internals, PCB and the small black imobiliser chip to the new fob.
