(door lock actuator)all doors have one in them, they weeken, and sometimes work to open, and some times to lock, or not at all. only fix is to replace each of them as they go out, usually cost abt 20 to 40 bucks a piece
hi this sounds like one of your locks has stuck inside the door, sometimes the locking mechanism gets stuck in the upright position and can not right itself, the only way you might be able to do it for a quick fix is remove the central locking fuse and lock it manually, try locking it from the opposite door that you can not turn the key in that should work, or manually lock the doors from the inside and then lock the last door with the key, then once you have done that try putting the fuse back in and then unlock it, if that does not work you might have to get a garage to remove the door panels and find out which lock is sticking...sorry its not much help but its something you can try.
I will say you are having problem with central locking vacuum module.Either that or you are loosing vacuum in the central locking system some where.Diagnostic procedure can be pain in the ***.I would advise you to locate the Module and follow the lines to each door.If rubber vacuum lines are not thorn,I would go and get to salvage yard and get me another module that would be much cheaper.Also there is two relays.One is for unlocking and other one for locking.Try those first before anything else.Usually humidity and cold could damage them.Hope I could help you.
yes there is if you drop down the glove box lid and remove the bolts holding the fuse box. unclip the fues box and pull it down. turn the fuse box around and there is a fuse on the back (i thing its a 15amp)
this is the other fuse for the central locking.
please let me know if this helps
