    dead locks

    hiya everyone have no idea if this is in the right section or not but here go's, for some reason or other the dead locks on my car have decided to stop working so has anyone got any idea wot might have caused this. The car still locks but when you press the key a second time to dead lock it, nothing happens. I dont think these will be connected to a fuse in any way otherwise the car wouldn't lock full stop and i know its definately not the key as i have the spare that hasn't even been used yet and it doe's exactly the same with that key too

    What MK Astra do you have? Have you fitted a new stereo to it recently?

    Ok well first thing to check is the drivers door pin switch. This can be checked just by switching the lights on with the door open and keys out the ignition. If you get annoying beep it's working fine
