Have you checked the battery inside the key fob?

Thanks for your responses guys
I tried the batteries firstly but seemed ok to me and after hours of reading other/similar topics and went through all what I changed or adjusted on the car at the same time I found that after I changed the internal mirror (second hand mirror from breakers yard) and then all started not to work with the key fob.. Old one went back on and all started to work again..
So In fact it was my mistake. I learn something new everytime I look at my car...
