Central remote locking on a vaukhall frontera

Central locking works intermitenly on signal from key. The doors will not lock from unlocked electronically. If first locked on the key mechanically the action of locking with the key signal will then lock the doors remotely which then allows the unlocking of the doors remotely. Unless the car is first locked mechanically and then locked electronically it will not unlock electronically To lock the car using the key mechanically requires all three doors other than the drivers door to be locked using the pegs then locking the drivers door mechanically with the key this means the entire car is then locked.

SOURCE: Nissan Micra 04. The central locking is making a noise

Hi there, this is a very common fault, what ever side door the noise is coming from you need to replace the door actuator to cure the noise, Ive done loads of these, not sure how much it is though, hope this helps.

SOURCE: land rover discovery central locking.

No, likely to be caused by the actuators in the lock mechanism failing usually causing the door to remain locked. The boor door can also fail this way, as do the front side doors. Replacement requires the whole lock unit to be replaced at a cost of roughly £60 a lock, and a hours work. Helps if you have small hands. Requires a full strip down of the door and you will need the lock unit, trim clips (a few quid) and a trim removal tool (tenner). You can bodge with a flat head screwdriver, but the tool does help prevent damage to the clips & trim panel.

SOURCE: 2006 bmw 325i remote only unlocks driverside door.

fuse 56 and 57 control central locking,the issue is caused by surges typically in the front door lock actuators, normally at a dealer they would replace fuse 56 and 57 with a 20a mini fuse and if still occuring repl the door lock(s) that dont work or typically both front, first replace fuse 56 and 57 with 20a fuses as were too small from factory and than operate ten to 15 times, if it doesnt work at first dont panic,let the car go to sleep which takes about 16 min and than try again this problem has nothing to do with the key fob or the lock unlock button inside,also the fuses are located behind the glove box just rere the access panel and they are found at lower left section

SOURCE: can not lock car by key remote . toyota rav 4 53 plate

If your car has an alarm with a separate remote, it is a separate system and it is probably self-arming. When you lock the doors with the key central lock, the alarm gets armed by the RAV4 being OFF and the door locking action. When you unlock the doors with the key, the alarm is still armed because the key is not comunicating with the alarm just the cars factory keyless system.

My right side passenger door does not lock automatically anymore. Is there a fuse that operates this.


no all is related to one fuse you can remove the door internal controls and decore and remove center lock motor plug and test two connectors with multimeter with set on 12v and then lock un lock door and check the reading of the multimeter if it read signal then all plugs and wires from central lock control unit to the door central lock unit is okay it this cae you have to replace the door central lock unit with the same if no signal is readed while you lock unlock the door then you have to check central control unit and all wire plus out of it to the door plug

2- you can remove central control unit from driver door and test it in passenger door (usually the same unit ) if it works with lock unlock its then the replaced unit is faulty and needs to be replaced if it not work then check plugs wires from central lock unit (usually found inside driver door ) to the central lock unit in passenger door

3- check signal for said door fro the output of central door unit if no signal then it mean that faulty central lock control unit

Hi there key dont work


it could be a problem with the central locking unit. you would need to have the system red on a obd read that does this part of the vehicle, you could try to reset the system key in ignition turn to number 2, press fob doors should lock and unlock with the button pressed. as for the side door this is controlled by the front door on that side this door has to be locked and the pin moved in the lock to send the power to lock the side door. with the central locking not working on the system and you manually locking it it may not be going all the way to lock both doors. or the central locking is not working at all. the fuse for central locking is in the main fuse box.

My Mitsubishi colt CZ1 (07 plate) has problem with cental locking. I can manually central lock but with the remote it locks/unlocks all the doors except the driver's door. Please help. Thanks


Central locking works by way of little electric motors that engages and disengages the door lock. The drivers door has an additional set of contacts in the actuator which signal the controller when it changes position. The controller activates the servo motors when a signal is received from the receiver or from the drivers door servo motor. So in your case I suspect the motor part of the drivers door actuator is done for.
To replace you will have to remove the inner driver's door panel to get at the actuator. The actuator itself cannot be repaired and needs to be replaced as a unit.

Where is the re-set button to program a remote door lock for my 2000 Subaru Forester?

Unlock the vehicle using the key. Program first key/remote control as follows: Press unlock button Fig. 1 [1], then lock button [2]. The door lock should lock and unlock in sequence confirming programming of first key/remote control. Repeat programming procedure for remaining key(s)/remote control(s). Once the last key/remote control is programmed disconnect central locking registration connectors. Check operation of all programmed keys/remote controls.

Central Locking does not work


You must reset your remote control in order for the lock/unlock to work properly.

To reset remote you would:
1)Insert Key in Ignition Turn to Position 1(Don't Start the Engine) for about 5 seconds
2)Turn Key Off and HOLD the LOCK button on Remote while pressing the UNLOCK 3 TIMES
3)Release both lock and unlock buttons you are holding
4)All doors should automatically unlock

And exit the door and lock with the Remote.

I have a bmw 316ti compact on a 52 reg. The central locking gave up working 3mths ago and we was useing the key to lock and unlock the car,then all ov a sudden we couldnt start the car.when you put the...


with any BMW they have their problems, one is the central locking/immobilizer, the central locking is linked into the immobilizer and vice versa, the immobilizer takes it signal to disarm from the central locking and the ignition key ring. (chip in the key) if one of these starts to play up it has loads of consequences this being one of them. they all need to work together for the system to work properly. you would need to read the alarm and immobiliser codes using an ob2 tool that can detect them, and find the fault some problems it can be the drivers door sensor in the lock this is the main door as its drivers side and it controls all other doors on the central locking. if the switch is worn in any of it movements the system will not know the door has been opened, this does not work on the interior light as that is a switch in the door frame. the door lock is lock unlock and deadlock with key with remote fob its also arm disarm alarm and immobiliser. i have seen in some models there is a sensor auto lock so when you walk away with the key the doors lock automatically all lease parts work together. any one having a problem can cause no signal to be sent to the others in the system to start engine .

Central locking system does not work


You should still be able to lock your car with the key, remember how we use to do it the old way..... with the key :-D. The central lock solenoid is located in the door itself, behind the door trim. Replace the offending solenoid with a new or used one. And once again you can lock/unlock the car with the remote
