    Sounds like the backlight bulb on the display has blown, get a new one from the dealers.
    Central locking could well be a broken wire between the pillar & the door.

    Welcome Ian

    We have a how-to on this just make sure the keys go no where near the ignition when you take the clocks out otherwise you'll trip the airbag light
