Testimonial: "The fob transmitter is RF not IR? My theory, based on my electronics background, is that there is a temperature sensitive fault in the receiver module; however I know nothing about central locking systems & will respect & pay heed to your advice. Many thanks"

Mervia. Why is central locking not locking any door?


It's only an educated guess. If all other locks switches are working it' either the switch panel itself or an electrical short. Switches are popular, get it checked first

Depending on the year, anything over about 1998 has whats called a 'central convenience module' that controls the windows, locks, sunroof, alarm, etc. It sounds like the one in your car is faulty. Its possible that the bad alternator caused some sort of power spike that has semi-fried the module, but not completely. They can be had used for < $100 generally.

If the key turns in the lock, but does nothing, then the linkage has become disconnected or broken. The key is mechanical to the lock and the lock has a electrical switch to operate the central locking unit. Could be a simple broken clip from the lock barrel. Hope this helps

My Porsche Key fob no longer unlocks the doors


Insert key into door barrel or ignition lock and turn key, whilst doing this press the unlock/lock button, the led on the dash should flash to indicate this has initialised the key to the car, then remove key and test operation of remote. If this fails then a new remote plus coding to the car by your dealership is needed
