    Astra 1.4i SXI 06

    Hi,
    I hope someone can help. I have just purchased an Astra 1.4i SXI and the central locking system does not work.
    I have done the following:
    1) Replace the battery as this was the 1st cheapest option and still nothing
    2) Sync the key in the ignition and reprogrammed the key and still nothing

    However, I took the car to have some tyres fitted and out of the blue to car engine died on me and the central locking system started working but the engine would not
    After pushing in all the fuses in the box under the bonnet and disconnecting the battery and then reconnecting it back again to reprogram the car the engine started working but again the central locking did not. I did however hear a click when the battery was connected again.

    I can only lock the driverís side of the car if I manually turn the key in the door as the passenger side does not have a lock so itís constantly left open

    Iíve heard there is a fuse for the central locking system but not sure where this is.
    Does anyone have any ideas?

    Oh and also to mention that when you put the key in the ignition the stereo comes on and when you turn the engine off and take the key out the stereo is still playing??

    You open the drivers door and the car makes a noise to state the car door is open but this is constantly on when the car door is open and you dont even have the car ignition on??

    does the car have the original stereo or has someone fitted a different one? because the wiring could need adjusting

    When the locking packed up before did you have the same noise when the door was open and the keys in your hand?

    I suspect the ignition barrell isn't releasing, you could try to spray some wd40 in there and work it back and forth to see if it helps

    Also I assume the locking button on the dash works ok?
