    At the moment i have to lock all the doors individually and unplug the battery before i leave it anywhere, as even if i lock them all individually and exit the car out a back door the boot is still unlocked and it unlocks itself a few minutes later anyway!

    I had the same problem with my Xsara. There is a thin brown wire in the loom between the drivers door and the body which was broken. soldered it back together and the central locking worked again. you have to check carefully as the break will probably show as a small crack in the covering on the wire

We have this problem too - can only lock the doors by shutting front doors - climb into the car via the back doors - lock front doors from inside and then manually lock back door. Boot is difficult to lock - takes about 3 or 4 attempts to lock it. Driving me mad!! Have been told it is probably worn or broken wires in the flexi hose in the door hinge. I may have to take it to the garage to get repaired.

It sounds to me as it is a mechanical problem with one of the locks.make sure the doors are closed properly also when locking of luck.

My citroen c3 . 2003 the door lock won't work and my battery has died how do I gt into the car to open the bonnet or can I go underneath the car to release bonnet catch

You should be able to open the door manually with the key and you may have to turn it twice. Also try unlocking it whilst at the same time pulling on the door handle to the opening position or pulling the door handle to the opening position and then working the lock to open it manually. One way or the other it is designed to be opened manually with the key when there is a power failure with the power operated central locking not then operable.

How unlock child safety lock 2006 Citroen Xsara Picasso sx 1.6 8

Open the door from the outside and on the edge of the door there should be a red button with a slot for the tip of the key near the lock, turn this and this will de-activate the child lock on this door. Do this to the other door and the child lock will also be de-activated, to engage the child lock do the reverse of the above.
This is only on the back doors ok.
