central locking problem
« on: July 27, 2018, 02:31:56 pm »
Hi all,
I hope someone can point me in the right direction. I had an intermittent problem with the front near side door not locking and occasionally would unlock with the fob or drivers door lock with the key
I had a pair of mirrors that needing fitting so thought I'd have a look at the lock as well. Went out to the car a few hours ago and found only the drivers door and the hatch are working on the fob or key lock.
Thank you.
Stuart.

Check the boot/hatch wiring as well, all sorts of wierd problems that don't always make sense seem to start there. Theres a few fuses that cause different faults to occur if they blow, but there would be a reason they have blown (broken wires somewhere you'd think, but rarely seems to actually be the case).

Could be a failed lock motor if no wiring problems evident, might be worth a scan with vcds to see if it can help any?

Hi.

I am having similar probems with my drivers door wiring. I haven't done anything about it yet but I notice there are breaks in the door wiring inside the body cavity before it goes into the door rubber. I had reason to take off the black end panel between the door and the end of the fascia. It may be worth having a look at the wiring in there if you haven't done already.

Cheers

L

Very strange....
went out to the car today and all works, tried several times and all
doors lock and unlock on the key and fob.
I can only think it may be heat related, maybe..
