Where is the central locking unit .


The did away with the central locking module. It's all built into the BCM now. That small motor is a solenoid, that's probably your problem. It only takes a moment of charge to open it.

Boot will not open with handle or remote on my 2005 Ford Focus 1.6 ghia saloon.


I know it's late, but you have a bad microswitch in the handle. I had the same problem with my 2005 focus. It needs to be replaced, that's it.

Ford mondeo 02plt. Central locking fault


I will say you are having problem with central locking vacuum module.Either that or you are loosing vacuum in the central locking system some where.Diagnostic procedure can be pain in the ***.I would advise you to locate the Module and follow the lines to each door.If rubber vacuum lines are not thorn,I would go and get to salvage yard and get me another module that would be much cheaper.Also there is two relays.One is for unlocking and other one for locking.Try those first before anything else.Usually humidity and cold could damage them.Hope I could help you.
