Question about Vehicle Parts & Accessories
My Maruti Zen has GENUINE company fitted Nikon Central Locking System. My problem is that it beeps continuously w/o any reason now. I am told that I need to reprogram the system but I do not know how do I do that? Any help in this regard. The workaround I've done now is to remove the control panel plate from the car to shut down the beeper but that has disabled my car's central locking completely. Any help in this regard is deeply appreciated!!

The most likely cause is a faulty Central Locking Pump. I had this problem recently and it is apparently quite a common fault on the A4. When you use the key manually can you hear a kind of humming noise for about 20 seconds or so coming from the rear of the car? If you can it indicates that the pump is trying to open the doors but something is preventing it.It might just be a leak in one of the air hoses but more than likely the compressor wheel inside the pump has disintegrated. I posted a solution to this the other day so I will just copy/paste it here for you.
There are 2 ways of solving it. The first is to pay your Audi Service Centre £350-£550 to replace it for you and the second way is to do it yourself which will cost well under £100 (depending on ebay). Firstly check the Central Locking Pump to make sure the hoses haven't come off. This is located in the very back right hand corner of the boot so you will need to remove the carpet and internal trim and you will see a block of sponge. Carefully lift the top off this and you will see the pump sat inside it.
Actually there is a great set of photos online to help you and I will add the link for you at the end. If the hoses are still connected and not leaking it is very likely that the internal compressor wheel has shattered (quite a common fault). I believe it is possible to open the pump and replace this wheel (in fact there is one for sale on a very popular auction site at the moment) but my own preference was to simply buy a whole new pump and replace that (£16.00 + £8 p+p off the same auction site).
The most important thing for you to remember is that when you look to buy a replacement pump you need to find one with the EXACT same serial number. The one in the diagram shown is
8LO 862 257 N but I have a sneaky feeling yours might end in an A.
Anyway, I hope this is of some help and dont worry about the connections as both air connectors and all 3 electrical ones are different sizes and will only fit in one place each. Mines a standard A4 but I would imagine evrything would be similar for the Quattro.

In response to your request I'd like to say that I have not solved the problem yet but intend to investigate the central locking relay in the engine compartment.
Also wish to say that I was led to believe that Fixya was a group of enthusiasts willing to share their knowledge. I did not understatnd that it was a for fee service.
Thanks for the reply.

It means that the remote is not passing the signal to the car . The alarm has triggered because the system has detected an illegal entry. Replace the remote batteries

trunk release wire goes to the trunk wire of the vehicle and the flash output goes to your parking lights. Now if the trunk release is a positive wire than you will have to put a relay in to make it positive and if your parking lights are negative than you will have to put a relay in to make it negative.

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.
