Early Galaxys have infrared locking, you cant miss the sensors as they are big and chunky (one by rear view mirror, one in the middle of tailgate opening). Very view have them though as radio remotes (RF) quickly replaced IR so there is no sensor as such, just an antenna built into the CJB

Nope no specific fuse for remote locking, its part of the central locking fuse.

Fob is the fabourite, they aren't that robust to be honest by comparison to other makes ;)

No I believe all uk galaxys use the same frequency, but thats different to 99% of VW's / Fords. Thats probably what they mean as normally you get one frequency across the manufacturers range
