Unhappy Punto Mk1 break in - remote central locking not working now

Last night my Punto Mk1 was broken into, all for some Oakleys and my radio (for which I left the fascia on - so it's my own fault really).

Walked to the car this morning and the passenger side door was ajar, closer look and the door buttons were up but no sign of forced entry, no damage around the lock or to the window seals or anything.

The locks still work with the keys (central locking works) but the remote central locking doesn't work anymore. Any ideas what the problem might be? It worked fine last night so I'm thinking it's not the relay come loose of anything (but I haven't checked properly yet).

Please help! I'm too lazy to use keys!

Do you have a standard fit remote control or is it the meta one?

If its the meta unit, check in the glove box and lift down the flap at the top. Your see a yellow relay - this is the c/l relay, check to see if its loose.

It's the standard fit system. I've done some more investigation nowe I've had time. Definately no sign of breaking (no screwdriver marks, door and window seals all ok). The fuse for the remote C/L has blown so that's probably why it's not working.

Could the theiving b***ards have shorted smoething out to get in?
