    I tried using remote whilst doors closed and ignition key in start position, as suggested by someone. Doors did not lock or unlock, in other words seemed like no effect. But when I used ignition key on door lock it locked both doors, and the remote unlocked and locked both doors. So now everything is working as was, I`ve always had the clicking of the central locking in short bursts after entering car and I`ve had the car 5 years! Thanks for help from all. Ray Harris

Try to check your door lock/car alarm fuse if still good.
if it's still working you have to check the driver seat door if there was no parts of your power door broken.

Remote key won't control back doors


Locate the rear door actuator motor and check for power at its wiring when you operate the remote. If power is there, but no action, then replace motor/actuator.
If no power is present, then check the wiring and the relay within the central locking circuit box.

I am so sorry and my condolences to you and family. These central lock systems works with a central processor within the car and which must respond with the remote frequency or the driver lock . If there is no response there can be many reasons but it seems to me that even your driver door key is not opening the lock which means that there is a mechanical issue with the key and lock. Use some WD40 into the lock to clear any dirt, check if the key has worn out if so you can get one duplicated at any center. If the key turns but the lock does not open then the actuator motor is faulty , this must be checked within the driver panel, check for power to the master unit, check the motor and drive to the lock. there can be an open connection in the hinges to the master unit or a mechanical jamming . Take consensus if you are in doubt to proceed.

My Mitsubishi colt CZ1 (07 plate) has problem with cental locking. I can manually central lock but with the remote it locks/unlocks all the doors except the driver's door. Please help. Thanks


Central locking works by way of little electric motors that engages and disengages the door lock. The drivers door has an additional set of contacts in the actuator which signal the controller when it changes position. The controller activates the servo motors when a signal is received from the receiver or from the drivers door servo motor. So in your case I suspect the motor part of the drivers door actuator is done for.
To replace you will have to remove the inner driver's door panel to get at the actuator. The actuator itself cannot be repaired and needs to be replaced as a unit.

Central Locking


When you use your remote or insert your key in the Drivers Front door all the door locks should work at the same time by the door lock motors electrically. If you have to manually unlock the door because it will not lock or unlock by the lock motor, you need a door lock motor. The drivers and passengers front door can unlocked with the key manually. The rear doors you have to pull up the latch. If no doors unlock electrically with the remote or drivers door lock, intermittantly or all the time, you will need a Central Locking Electronic Control Module. You will hear the "beep" but no door locks will fire at all. If you have odd door locks not working intermittantly you need a new door lock motor for each door lock that malfunctions. You can hear of the door locks are working electrically. Yes, they are common problem. If you can hear the door lock working but the door still doesn't unlock you need to take the door panel off and lubricate the door latch assembly and work the lock, loosening it up. This is common as well.

When you use your remote or insert your key in the Drivers Front door all the door locks should work at the same time by the door lock motors electrically. If you have to manually unlock the door because it will not lock or unlock by the lock motor, you need a door lock motor. The drivers and passengers front doors can unlocked with the key manually only. The rear doors you have to pull up the latch. 
If NONE of doors unlock electrically with the remote or drivers door lock, intermittently or all the time, you will need a Central Locking Electronic Control Module. Pressing the remote button you will hear the "beep", but no door locks will fire at all. 
If you have a few odd door locks not working intermittently or not at all, you will need a new door lock motor for each door lock that malfunctions. You can hear if the door locks are working electrically. Yes, they are common problem. 
If you can hear the door lock motor working but the door still doesn't unlock you need to take the door panel off and lubricate the door latch assembly and work the lock, loosening it up. This is common as well.
Sometimes a bad door lock motor can blow the central locking fuse. You will notice it because it will take a second or two longer to lock and unlock compared to the others. If the door lock motors seem fine, install a the next step up in amperage fuse. (From 15 AMP to a 20 AMP)
