It could be dirty terminals in the key fob, also make sure the battery is the correct way round, positive facing up, hope this helps.

I had a similar problem, the keyfob transmits a code everytime a button is pressed. The code changes every press and the sequence of codes is specific to the keyfob. The car is synchronised to the keyfob so it 'knows' what the next code will be (and a couple more). if you press the buttons on the keyfob out of range of the car the car and the fob become out of sync and they will not work together. you will have to google how to resynchronise the two (or check the handbook). There are different techniques depending on the model and year of car my 2012 fieta requires you to turn on and off the ignition 4 times in ten secs with a working key, the press a button on the non working fob, then a button on the working fob before turning the ignition on and off again to activate the non working fob. then all is ok.

SOURCE: 2000 Ford Focus automatic door locks quit working.

check fuse 63 first.

Visual Inspection Chart Mechanical Electrical

  • Binding latch mechanisms
  • Binding linkage
  • Misaligned door
  • Central junction box fuse 63 (20A)
  • Damaged wiring harness
  • Loose or corroded connection(s)
  • Circuit
  • Door lock switch
  • Door lock actuator



It could also be your GEM (generic electronic module) which is expensive as it controls a lot of stuff. A scan tool can be used to cehck for fault codes from the GEM.

SOURCE: my central locking is not working

Since it works, although reluctantly, we can safely say that the circuits to the lock actuator are working properly. The door lock actuator will be your problem-child. This is integrated into the door latch assembly and must be replaced as a unit. You will have to purchase the parts from the dealer, as they are not available in the aftermarket.

Have 2007 Camry had a flat battery now the alarm does not work what do i do. Have to lock the car with they key instead of the remote. I have replaced both batteries but the central locking does not work?


A flated battery would not affect the central lock. Mostly it is due to the improper fitting. The door locks are operated by a solenoid in each door. First check the fuse of the central lock. The fuse boxes are in engine compartment and inside the car under the steering wheel panel beside. In most cases, it is the fuse stall the car. If the fuse is OK, then check the electrical continuity. If you are not car machanic, let the proper car electric specialist to do it for you. For them, it is a very easy and quick job to do. Aso ckeck the battery in the remote if it is porperly fitted. You have to buy a Haynes Workshop Manual for Camry 2007-2011 PN 92009.

Central locking in my bmw 320 diesel isnt working it wont open the doors but it will start the engine , the spare key is the same so its not the battery of the keys


Providing central locking works when you insert key in lock,try programming keys
Enter car make sure all doors/windows are shut
Switch ignition on and off,remove key
PRESS AND HOLD UNLOCK BUTTON ON KEY
Press lock button on key 3 times whithin 10 seconds and release unlock
Central locking will lock/unlock rapidly to confirm reset
If your key is the type with bmw logo in the middle battery replacement is not possible,as it charges as you drive

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.
