    The roof opens a third of the way, the windows go down, and then it seems to stop. The button also has a continuous flashing light. I then turn off the engine and re-start to get the roof to close again.

    2010 Nissan Murano passenger door will not open with either the inside or outside door handle. Lock is opening and closing; manually and with the key fob. I got out of car, closed the door, came back within 15 minutes - the door is not opening. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.

Passenger door lock is electronically controlled by the door lock actuator. You will need to replace the door lock actuator.

2003 mini cooper drivers door will not lock with key fob or inside lock switch, will only lock manually turning the key. All other locks work properly.

A solenoid operates the lock mechanism. Does it make a 'click' when the switch is operated? If so, then the linkage connecting the solenoid core to the lock has probably come undone. If no click, then the solenoid itself may be defective or the wiring to it is broken or disconnected at some point. Either way, the inside door panel must be removed to access. Hope this helps!

My passenger door central locking has stopped

Method 1: Press lock or unlock button 4 times in succession. Method 2: Switch ignition ON and OFF. Within 10 seconds press lock and unlock button in succession.
This is the only manual reset
If this does not work go to your local auto electrician
The probable fault could be central locking activator passenger door

Central locking wont stay open

Here's what I suspect is happening. The door locks will lock and unlock normally when the key is OUT of the ignition. If the key is IN the ignition, the doors cannot be locked (manually, key fob, or otherwise, if the system is operating as designed - prevents the doors being locked when the key is in the ignition). I've seen this problem before, but on a Santa Fe, not an Accent. The ground signal of the right hand front passenger door was lost, and the doors automatically locked. Perhaps something similar is happening in the circuit between the ETACS module and the right front passenger door lock/unlock actuator. Could be anywhere in the circuit.

ab4c712.gif These wiring diagrams may be helpful. The relays expecially may help solve this issue. As you can see, these relays are also controled by the ETACS module (Remote Keyless Entry).

Mini central locking not working properly. It will lock with fob, but only the passenger door unlocks with fob.

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.
