Question about 2002 Kia Sedona

Open Question

The central locking randomly locks itself, usually whilst shutting the driver's door, although it has happened whilst opening the rear sliding door. The remote central locking was disabled a couple of years ago and I always use the key now. I have removed the door card, checked all linkages for binding, removed and checked the door lock module itself (all linkages are clean and operating normally). There is no sign of wire damage or water damage.

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: Central locking keeps locking the

Hello, we have a 2003 Kia Rio- problem as above- unlocking and then locking- only way in and out through passenger door.
This is what I have done and everything is back to normal- I hope it works for you.
1 Remove 25AMP fuse that controls door central locking from main box under the bonnet.
(AT this stage my passenger door opens- drivers side does not, the mechanism won't fully rotate)
2, Spray key with WD40 (or similar moisture repellent lubricant). Gently turn key to loosen mechanism- Partly remove key and spray lubricant into lock, have fun locking and unlocking!
3, Replace 25 amp fuse
4, Write yourself a cheque for garage labour and parts and wife brownie points!

2003 VW GOLF REAR door wont open


The rear door lock actuator has failed in the door locking unit this is a common problem you can manually unlock the door to replace the latch if you didn't have the deadlocking on if you cant try pressing the locking button twice so when the car is locked the flashing red light is not blinking ie off on the drivers. Doing this usually causes the faulty lock to release the dead locking so you can pull the inside handle to unlock the door.

Central unlocking itself. Works then immediately unlocks itself


It's hard to say what the problem could be with out looking at a wiring diagram to see what's in control of the system . AKA an electronic control module ! door ajar switches etc... knowing the make , model an year could help .

2003 Kia Optima doors are unlocked but wont open. How do I get the doors open in order to remove the panels to fix the problem?


will the drivers door not open whilst the key is turned in the key lock ?if not can you open the trunk with the key , lean into the trunk and there should be a catch to release one of the rear seats down, then get some one small , scramble through to the rear of vehicle and open back door from inside , hope this helps,when you get into vehicle check the fuse for the central locking as might save you stripping out the door panel,if fuse ok just strip out the drivers door as this is the actuating lock that sends the signal to the other doors

Drivers door and fuel cap not locking with central locking have to lock door with key also fuel cap does not lock all other doors lock and open with central locking drivers door opens with central locking


Hello Alan,

I would suspect the fuel flap actuator has failed. Open the trunk. In the right rear corner is the access cover. Open it and you'll see some insulation matting near the top. Behind it is a fuse/relay carrier, I believe either fuse 55 or 56 is blown. If so the fuel flap actuator needs replaced. The fuse also controls the central locking system.

Central locking opens and then shuts again within a second


I think central locking is a system so if it doesnt work try seeing if it can be replaced, or completely taken out and revert to manual unlocking.
