    Red face Central locking ANYONE AT ALL?

    My central locking is nackd! It will always lock with the fob however it always struggles to open. I end up having to use the key which then only opens the drivers door. I can pull the pin on the passenger door but it seems to be deadlocked until the fob works eventually.
    The trick I find useful is to pull the pin up on the rear doors and press the fob to deadlock and then the car realises the doors are open and shoots all the doors open. This trick doesn't always work, only sometimes.

    The re-sync (key to position two in ignition and press lock/unlock) does NOT work. So I have absolutely no idea what to do next...HELP??

    Mine did the same some time back check the ket fob it's self they are known to fail over time mainly due to the solder holding the battery pack to the board.

    Folded paper can help but repair is the sure answer.

    If it was just the remote packing up te rest of the locking would still work properally and unlock the passenger door. You'll probably find there's a problem with the switches for the locking in the drivers door
