I had same problem. It was cured by "flicking" shut the interior opening handle of the drivers door. This allowed the central locking to lock then unlock the drivers door properly. You get into the car in the first place by using the romote to "unlock" and whipping the passenger door open quickly before it has a chance to relock!

1...Make sure the fob battery is working (Try removing and replacing it again to reset everything )...or try another new battery in it

2...If that fails, try disconnecting the Main Car Battery terminal for 10 minutes, then replace it. This often resets everything as well.

Make sure you have the code for the radio before doing that

Central locking not working

Assuming that the battery mentioned above is the Key Fob battery?

The usual solution to the key fob not working the Central Locking after battery replacent  is to remove the car battery feed fuse   to the Central Locking (or disconnect the car battery )  for 10 minutes...replace it..... then it should work OK

note: If you disconnect the Car Battery then make sure you have the radio security code.
If not then POST A NEW QUESTION quoting your radio Serial Number (usually begins with M * * * *  * * )
