SOURCE: mini central locking not working

There are two settings for the fob to unlock doors. One is both doors unlock, and the other is the drivers door on the first click, and then after waiting about two sec. pushing again unlocks the passenger door. The dealer has to set this function. I find that if I don't wait long enough, the passenger door does not unlock.

SOURCE: 2006 bmw 325i remote only unlocks driverside door.

Replace fuse 57 (15 amp) then disconnect battery and wait 30 to 45 minutes before reconnecting the battery.

My 2006 BMW 325I had the same problem with the door locks not responding. I checked all related fuses and found #57 (15 amp) was the only related fuse blown. I put in a new fuse and it still would not work. I then disconnected the battery for a while then once I reconnected the battery everything worked fine.

I believe I blew the fuse while repeatedly pushing the unlock button rapidly while walking across the parking lock to the car. I suggest only pushing the unlock button only once or twice.

2004 Grand Vitara. Warming the car this morning, locked it.Came back with remote and a key and the doors would not unlock.Engine was running with the other key in it. Had to have a locksmith break in. Why...


don't have 2 fobs?
it cam with 2,
and the battery must be good.(for buttons to work on fob)
never run any car with only 1 fob or one key.
or get locked out.
are you saying the metal cut key end (pure mechanical ) failed?

my car has a real key with a a transponder inside .
it can open 2 ways, the keyfob buttons, (takes a good battery)
and the key metal end.

get a spare fob and program it.

My suzuki grand vitara has keyless start/entry but I have never been able to lock the doors with the starter token in the car when it is not running is this a safety/security feature?


most newer vehicles will not lock the door with the keys in the ignition and/or the keyless start remote fob in the vehicle. Vitara has a small button on the handle that will unlock the door if you have the fob in your pocket if the fob is in the car it can"t be secured since it is set up to unlock when the fob is within a couple feet of the vehicle. I know this is a late post for your question maybe it will help others

Wife taken clio to work with the spare key (no button), she has tried to lock the car but only the passenger side locks, the drivers side is unlocked, how can she lock the drivers door?


Hi,

As you have not stated the Year of Manufacture, I will provide the following possibilities:

Firstly, your wife must be using a sub-key (if no remote function). So, you need to determine if this was a factory supplied sub-key, or was a re-cut duplicate of the master key.

Secondly, the 'most used' key will usually wear out over time (and the driver's barrel lock will sometimes wear in accordance with the most used key), which would mean only that key will operate that door barrel lock successfully.

If the sub-key has not worn to the same degree, chances are the sub-key may not be able to engage properly when inserted into the driver's door lock.

This is common when using a sub-key - sometimes a sub-key won't start the car, but turning the key upside down will often operate the ignition. The same principle would apply to the driver's door lock also.

The key will often operate the door lock if you only insert it about 95% of the way , or simply turn the key upside down and try again.

If the key refuses to operate the driver's door, the other alternative is to enter via the passenger side and reach over to lock the driver's door from the inside. Then lock the passenger door behind you.

However, this is a major hassle, so I would recommend you obtain a replacement Renault key "FOB" remote (you can get these off Ebay reasonable cheaply - supplied with instructions) and program it to your vehicle yourself. This will enable both of you to have a central locking remote key fob.

Note: the remote fob programming feature will obvioulsly depend on the year of manufacture for your vehicle though.

None of the doors open when the unlock button on the remote key fob is pressed


This can be cause by one of the three:
1. The battery in remote has run empty.
2. The fuse responsible for central locking is blown out.
3. Very unlikely, but all the doors motors for central locking are broken.

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

Reprogram remote


xl-7 programming instructions first you need to stuff your head up under the dash and locate your module drivers side upper corner under dash does it say programmable transmitter (the first models had no programable modules) if it says that then......
1 confirm all doors are shut and key is out of ignition
2 open drivers door insert key and turn to on within 10 sec
3 turn ignition switch to off in 10 sec
4 push and release drivers door switch 3 times in 20 sec
5 turn ign. switch to on in 10 sec
6 turn ign. switch to off in 10 sec
7 press and hold lock and unlock button on transmitter for 5 sec within 20 sec of step 6 alldoors will lock/unlockto confirm correct process
8 press lock unlock buttons on second remote within 5 sec after step 7 once again all doors will lock/unlock to confirm
9 to add another remote up to a max of four repeat steps 1 through 8 this was taken directly out of an owners manual supplement that comes with a new keyless entry kit (part number for a xl-7 or grand vitara can't remember which one it goes to but it works on either one is 84900-67810) which you would have to purchase if yours is not programable these instructions are the same for vitara, grand vitara, xl-7 and the esteem hope this helps
