    Central locking problems

    Been having a few central locking problems the last few weeks (Seems to be a spate of it on here).

    If I try and lock the car it just unlocks itself straight away. It takes between 4-6 goes (On average) for it to lock and stay locked.

    Even then it sometimes wont let me dead lock so I have to unlock and lock (Nearly all ways locks first time) and then dead locks.


    Any ideas?

    I guess your cars delocked Lee?

    How is it when you just sit inside and push the drivers door botton down?

    If you can't fault it at all by locking it from the inside it will point towards a faulty door lock on that door

    Take the door cards off and disconnect 1 lock at a time till it locks.
    Chances are its the drivers door motor unit at fault.
    BTW only a 20 min job to fix once you locate the fault.

    don't know if will help but when I was wiring my speakers up, I took the connector block out of the door and when I re'fitted it, the lock pin had worked itself loose. Bit of a ballache but might be worth pulling the rubber back to have a butchers to see if yours has come out?

    Update.

    When I try and lock it with the key it does the same thing. IE: when I lock it the lock pops back up again.

    Also from inside the car when I lock it by pushing the button down it doesnt central lock at all. Locks as if I have no central locking.

    I think that fact it doesn't do it from inside on the drivers side this points towards the fault being the drivers door lock/ motor (if they are seperate)
