Remote central locking unlocking but not locking

The car: 2008 (57) fiesta 1.25 zetec climate (3dr) The issue: The remote key fob unlocks the car fine, but on pressing the lock button the indicators flash and the wing mirrors fold in but neither the drivers nor the passenger door actually locks. The same behaviour is seen with two separate remote keys. Any help much appreciated!!

SOURCE: passenger side door will only unlock if you pull handle and only lock if you push lock down.key,switch or remote won't work.

You are on the right track.

Door panel is easy to take off. you need a screwdriver and a panel popper (or if you don't have one carefully pull the panel off with your hands, you may have to get new panel clips) ,they are cheap so no big deal.

I have a Crime stoppers, remote starter. Original key fob will not unlock or lock the doors. Only remote starter to lock and unlock doors, having to carry both is very cumbersome. HELP


You either have the CS system on your car or you have it professionally removed which is what I would do.

If you install a product like this on your car which controls the central locking as well you won't be able to use the stock key fob for unlocking because the system is now programmed to the CS system.

I have a 1999 Subaru Impreza- Remote locking


First, it may seem obvious, but check the fuses associated with the remote unlock. Next, go to Autozone or somewhere like that where they have a remote tester. That will tell if the remote is functional. If the remote works and the fuses are good, see if you can find out how to program remotes to it. It may have forgotten the code for that remote.

REAR DOOR LOCK


you either have a faulty central locking motor or the wiring harness may be damaged.
Remove the door panel and check if you have a live feed to the central locking motor when you use the fob to lock or unlock. If you have power, then it will most likely be the motor that is at fault.
