    Central Locking issues

    My central locking has recently developed an interesting fault. when i unlock the car, the rear drivers door wont centrally unlock, but if i pull the tab up, it will then lock normally. any ideas?

    Could just be sticking on the linkage as it goes through the door card and/or the connection to the solenoid is damp or it has a damaged wire etc it may even be the solenoid/key are out of synch.

    I'd say it's a duff motor/ stif lock.

    could it still be the motor seen it'll still lock and dead lock centrally? also how do i re sync the key as that sounds like an easy first step in the problem solving

    It probably just hasn't got the power to open the door. Resyncing is when the remote doesn't work all the doors, not just one
