SOURCE: central locking using key fob not opening' have to

Was it working before and it just stoped working? Either its not programed to the vehicle or the unlock button is bad. the buttons do wear out over time.

Toyota corolla verso 2007 . the central locking has stopped working


Toyota Corolla Verso - Central locking has just stopped responding


So you don't waste your time, here are some assumptions: -

1. When I press the key fob there is no sound of doors trying to lock/unlock and I know the key fob is fine.


Solution:


In this situation reset the alarm/locking system

Below is the procedure I followed to get the central locking working again: -

Open the passenger door, and look at the side of the dash board. There should be a triangular panel. Pull the panel off to reveal a small set of fuses(see the back of the panel for the fuse map). To power down the central locking you need to remove the Dome Light fuse, this is located top left. Second one down 7.5 amps. (if in doubt remove the top two 7.5 amp fuses I did)

When you remove the fuse(s) you will notice the interior light go out indicating you have powered down the system.

Now leave them out for at least 30 mins so any capacitors can discharge properly. (Be aware while the fuse is removed all central locking is disabled, so the other doors are open. I left the fuse(s) out over night with all the doors open but I don't recommend it, 30 mins should be fine)

After 30 mins replace the fuse(s) close all doors, and then try your key fob, hopefully you should here that satisfying locking sound.


2. When I press the key fob I hear the locking system trying to engage.

This could be a faulty door switch on any door including the boot, or there could be a dent in the inner door panel of any of the doors, usualy the rear doors due to the seat belt not retracting properly.

Solution:

Check all door switches for damage, and check inner panel for dents, just a small dent where the switch connects can be enough to not engage the switch. This will stop the central locking.

Use some kitchen roll wrapped in tape (as a makeshift pad) and tape to the inner door as a temp measure to engage the door switch. At least you can then lock the car.

Doors do not centrally lock with fob or key (they close but open straight away). Onlu option is lock drivers side with key and then lock the other 3 doors manuually. Ford Fiesta Mark 6 in the UK

4 - then lock again with fob while key in ignition.

5- then remove key exit car try locking doors from out side this should reset all your door locks

1999 Audi A3 1.8T Electric Windows and Central Locking Won't work


will your passenger door open with the key and is it just one side that your windows are not working or both. if its just one side it might be your regulator motor in the door thats not working if its both it might be your central locking pump usually in the boot. however if both of them are working fine it could be that your key needs reprogrammed however i think the 1st 2 are more likely to be the problem.
