Good afternoon Anne and welcome.

Am I right in thinking that you have one key for this car, and that it locks and unlocks the car via the central locking when you put the key in a door lock? And I take it that the engine starts and runs normally when you put the key in the ignition...

Was the person who sold you the car able to offer any information on this?

Have you watched the video I linked to? Following that procedure is hopefully the next step in getting you fully operational.

Are you confident that the fob's new battery is indeed new (well within date) and that it has been fitted correctly - it's not unknown for people to fit the battery the wrong way round.

Otherwise it sounds like you need specialist advice from @timmus.
