I have to unlock the car using the passenger side door.Im also now having problems locking and unlocking using either door.. P.S. its not a golf, its a VW polo SE 2000 reg.

    I have the same problem but with the passenger side door. We have to climb through the window to get in. The rest of the cars central locking works fine so it is not the battery, just this one door that seems to be the problem. It's a Mark 5 Golf TDI. Can anyone help?

    The bonnet on my Mark 5 VW Golf will not close. I opened it to change the oil today and now It will not click closed. It is just resting loosely. How can I close it?

    i purchased my polo 2 months ago. now its started to give me problem. my central locking doesn't work at all. i can open and lock the driver side of the door but then manually have to open and close the other doors from the inside. i've checked the fuse they are ok. And also my right indicator seems to be having a race because when i use it to indicate right it clicks so fast whereas the left indicator is working fine.

    does anyone have a solution plz.

The indicator light pulsing quicker than usual means that one of the globes for the side you are indicating to has blown or is missing.

Hi,
If you are lucky the remote key batteries might be flat - the replacement type might be CR1620, or CR2032, but it would be sensible to check the old ones first - for type, quantity and voltage.
Hope this helps.D

Can the immobilizer or central locking be switched off in a Nissan Almeria 2001 car?


you can remove the central locking fuse , this will stop the lock/unlock constantly , the problem is usually with the drivers door lock mechanism , that is perhaps why you cant lock/unlock with the key, lock from inside vehicle and get out passenger side, that lock should work with the key until you get the lock changed on drivers door

I can't unlock my 2003 kia rio with the key, and when I unlock it from the inside it relocks itself before I can open the door


Hello,
Just had the same problem and know it is fixed.
You may have worked out that you can use the fob to unlock and then immediately lift the passenger handle to get access- not ideal.
In my case I couldn't turn the key in the drivers door either
1, Remove the 25 AMP fuse for door locking from fuse box under the bonnet. This disables central locking. The passenger door opens fine. The key however won't turn in drivers door.
2, Spray WD40 or other moisture repellent protective lubricant on key. Insert into drivers lock- gently turn back and forth. Half remove key so you can spray more WD40 into lock- a good blast will do. Keep gently turning until you can lock and unlock.
3, Replace 25 amp fuse
4, Hopefully job done- worked for me

KIA RIO Central Locking problem


Hello,
1, Use fob to unlock and immediately open passenger door. This will give you access to bonnet release switch.
2, Open bonnet and remove 25AMP Door lock fuse
3, Spray WD40 on key- place in drivers door lock and gently try to open and close- do not use force. Half remove key and spray more WD40 into barrell. Keep gently playing until you can lock and unlock using key
4, Replace 25AMP fuse
5, It worked for me- hopefully for you also

Hi, Somehow the boot of the car has locked


All locking and unlocking is done through the switch on the drivers door lock. Put the key in the drivers door and lock and unlock several times. See if the boot opens then.
Or make sure you haven't hit the lockout button on the drivers door that stops anyone else from opening their doors. (Including the boot.)
