First you need to know if the alternator is charging the battery, if the battery is able to hold a charge, and if something on the car is draining the battery overnight.

SOURCE: Reset remote central locking key fob for 2003 Kia Sportage

Should be able to take it apart and take the battery out for 15-30 seconds or longer. Then put it back in. While your at it, you might as well change the battery but doing this will reset it.

SOURCE: 2003 kia rio- water pumps

If it is your first time having the timing belt changed, chances are the water pump is still in good enough shape to hold out until you are due for your next belt change. No sense throwing away money prematurely...

Central locking not operaiting


Was the car battery disconnected before this central locking problem.Also is the central locking system operated by remote.If yes,then is the remote battery new or old.If the battery in remote is old then try with new battery.Also if the central locking is controlled by a push button in the car then it can be the problem with push button switch .The switch on driver side is got short.It has to be checked with meter to confirm the fault.Apply a direct 12 volt external battery to the switch and check if the central locking is getting done.Also confirm if you can lock the doors manually by using a car key.If you are not able to lock the door with key manually then its faulty door latch.But if the door lock and unlock manually with out any problem then this problem is related to central locking switch or the remote.

730d sport 04. I lock the car with remote key, but when i try the doors the car opens.. no alarm nothing..


When you press lock you should hear central locking click.
If you don.t the remote battery is flat.You can not change battery,it charges in ignition as you drive.Have you got a second key to try.
If not use manual key located in remote key{check ln owners manual}to lock car.Also using this key will confirm central locking is ok.
good luck barry.

try locking and unlocking the car with the key 3 times slowly ,other than that i have no idea ?? another trick is to disconnect battery and join the cables together for a few minutes to discharge any capacitors that may be holding a charge in the computer..Only other thing i can think of is the main dealers who have the right connectors and software to re set it all .sorry i havent been of any help

Central locking


the linkage inside the door mechanism is loose, it can push up the lock but it can not pull it.

could be the connection of the linkage. might just be loose. open the door panel and you can observe what is going on.

could also be a lock solenoid problem if the linkage are tight.

check it first then we will proceed after wards. keep me posted.

tnx 4 using fixya,

CENTRAL LOCKING


Check your remote batteries.Listen for any sounds coming from the passenger door lock when operating the drivers door switch.The lock could be faulty.Have a diagnostic check done at a dealer to tell you whats wrong , this is normally free , before stripping anything..
