    Driver's door central locking not working

    Hi,

    About a week ago my driver's door stopped locking with the remote fob. It is fine to lock and deadlock with the key, but I can't get it to unlock via the remote.

    When I press the remote fob, the doors lock, then unlock again.

    The alarm is still activating, and the other doors open okay with the remote fob, but never the drivers.

    Also, twice the door handle inside hasn't worked to open the door, and i've had to put an arm thru the window and open it that way

    Any ideas?
    Thanks, Paul.

    Usually if it was just a straight case of the door not locking i'd say it's the motor thats at fault and needs replacing but the fact you say the handle hasn't worked could point towards the lock mech being knackered

    Just got back in from the cold having stripped down the door for a look. Nothing obvious appears to me (since I'm a complete rookie) but it doesn't sound like the motor is even making an effort to lock the door.

    Any idea how much it would cost for the new motor?

    Would the problem be solved if I was switching to a new alarm? I've been thinking about getting a Clifford for a while.

    New motor maybe about £40 at a guess

    Any alarm will do exactly the same thing
